M ~ Meal Planning

     Every week I take a little time to plan out a menu before I make my grocery shopping list. I like how it prevents that block of wondering what I'm going to be cooking for supper. I also like how it helps me incorporate new recipes knowing that I'll have the necessary ingredients on hand. 
    I keep each week's menu in one of my "idea books" and I enjoy looking back over previous menus to see what our favorites had been.
    This week I had planned a different sort of menu because one of us was scheduled for oral surgery yesterday, and I wanted the food to still be able to be enjoyed by all.

Monday

Korean BBQ wraps
Purple Slaw

Tuesday

Chile Relleno Casserole
Salad

Cream of Chicken Soup (from scratch)

  1. I agree with the way you plan things out. All of my married life the paycheck has come every other week, so planning a menu was a necessity. We are vegetarians, so I can't just toss pork chops and ground beef into the basket and think "Monday and Tuesday"; we're talking *recipes*, and there's nothing more frustrating than getting halfway into a recipe and finding you don't have what you need.
