Menu Plan

I'm working menu planning back into my weekly routine. Not planning for a few weeks made a much bigger difference than I thought it would. My pantry slowly began to fill with random objects again, my grocery bill was about the same -but I always got home only to think "what did I ACTUALLY get?!?!?," and our evenings felt more rushed. So with the holidays rapidly approaching -- and with them dinners, parties, general craziness, potential snowed/iced in days -- I want to get organized again. Take back control of my pantry!!!

Menu Plan - Week of October 12th

Monday - Chicken something.... I know, very organized and 'planned' of me right?!?

Tuesday - Pizza Stuffed Pretzels

Wednesday - Rosemary Chicken Soup (recipe to follow)

Thursday - Our 4th anniversary! Dinner recipes courtesty of The Pioneer Woman: Grilled Ribeyes with Onion Blue Cheese Sauce, Roasted Garlic and New Potatoes.

Friday - Hamburger Helper (get it OUT of the pantry!!!) or something really fast. It's homecoming weekend :)

This post if linked to Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Mondays - head on over!

Hi, Kristen, thanks for stopping by. I think a lot of us are getting into meal planning lately & it really does help. Your chicken-something sounds familiar. You can always do a recipe with chicken, huh?! Hope you'll join the recipe party too, I look forward to trying some new ones.
