Menu Plan Monday - %%sitetitle%%

Menu Plan Monday

Welcome!

As promised here is my menu plan for this week. Please keep in mind that I like to keep things simple yet healthy if I can. Often my recipes come from the cooking magazines by Reiman Publications like Quick Cooking (QC), Light and Tasty (L&T), Simple and Delicious (S&D) and Taste of Home (TofH). Saturdays and Sundays I don’t usually plan in advance.

Monday Beef Fajitas with spinach salad

Tuesday Chicken Veggie Casserole (QC Nov/Dec 02 Pg 50)

Wednesday Slow Cooked Italian Pork Chops (QC Sept/Oct 02 Pg 49) with rice and broccoli

Thursday Leftovers

Friday Slow Cooked Hearty Hash Brown Dinner (QC July/Aug 05 Pg 51)

Saturday Speedy Southwest Salad (QC July/Aug 02 Pg 27)

Do you do menu planning in your family? If so, please share your menu on your blog and leave your link below. Feel free to use the header above. For those of you not currently menu planning but would like to then this might be just the start you need. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think of Menu Plan Monday.

Here is my blog about menu planning that I posted a couple of weeks ago.

Happy Eating!

Laura

    I’m first, hooray! Makes me feel special. Now…I actually put this together as a draft yesterday, so it’s the second one down when you go to my site. I wish I knew how to put it on top, LOL!
    I make a great spinach salad, but I always like new recipes. Can I have yours?

    I put my name in and it showed right up! mom2fur, on the side where it shows your recent posts, click on the Menu Plan Monday title under Recent Entries and then it will pop up just that one entry. Just to make it easy on you, here it is:

    Laura, what a great idea! Now, I have a meme-type idea for each weekday, oh, except for Fridays…anyone know one for Fridays? I have an idea for one, but I just don’t know…it’s too scary starting one of my own…I mean, what if no one else thought it was a good one. Plus, I’d need a graphic…too scary…

    Anyhow, I “Mr. Linky”ed myself. :)

    Deanne says:

    Well, it DID show up before I left a comment. Is Mr. Linky broken? *scratching my head*

    Mom2fur says:

    I’ll have to save your logo to Photobucket so I can use it next time! Oh…and I guess julie julie bo boolie (LOVE that name, banana fanna fo foolie) should really have been first!

    org junkie says:

    Gosh so sorry ladies. “Mister Linky” is looking into the problem for us. Hopefully it will be working soon.

    Actually when I post it it shows, but when I come back later the link is gone, I’ve posted twice, apparently so have a few others.
    Here’s my link anyway: http://warpie.blogspot.com/2006/07/menu-planning-monday.html

    Beck says:

    I signed up, too, but I’m the only one showing up. Mr. Linky is broken!

    Annie says:

    Okay I did it, there must be some problems with Mr. Linky…I hope it gets worked out. I guess it can’t go all that smooth on your first day doing this…that would be way too easy!!

    Sandra says:

    I think it’s blogger acting nerdy again……typical LOL

    org junkie says:

    Okay now the link box is gone so I know it is being worked on….hopefully soon……

    What a great idea! I always do a menu before I go shopping. But am alway stuck in a rut for the same things every week. So this will give me ideas for future weeks!

    Super Idea!

    GiBee says:

    Y’all are just CRACKING ME UP with all the Mr. Linky comments and problems! I know you’re being serious and all, but some of the comments are so funny … why??? Because MR LINKY was invented by a man. Sheesh! Of course there are going to be some kinks! If it were invented by a WOman it would be perfect. See? Now, don’t you find it funny too?

    That was fun. I didn’t leave the recipes for anything. I couldn’t get my link to work.
    Have a great day!

    YAY! Thanks for the great idea!!!! Glad I found your blog! I think it can be an inspiration to me so that the organizing junkie in me can finally be RELEASED!!! LOL!

    Jen says:

    What a great idea! This week will be weird for me since we have out-of-town family and we’ll probably eat at my mother-in-law’s house most of the week. But I’m going to bookmark you and participate next week!

    2boysmama says:

    Menu planning has saved me! I use the cookbook Saving Dinner and I love it! I don’t even have to think up the menus because they are already made up complete with shopping list.

    Julie Julie Bo Boolie says:

    Yay, it’s working now :) Thanks for the great idea.. I thoroughly enjoyed my burger tonight … especially the part where I wasn’t scrambling around 5 p.m. wondering what I was going to make for supper!

    momrn2 says:

    What a fun idea!! I’m not this organized but maybe eventually this will inspire me to think ahead a bit. I also think it will let me know whose house to stop by when for some great eating!! :-)

    Overwhelmed! says:

    I just found out about this through Gibee. I linked one of my older posts, showing an example of my menu planning style.

    I’ve started a Five Ingredient Friday recipe exchange to help come up with quick, easy recipes to add to my weekly menu planner. I hope you’ll all stop by and take a look. :)

    Overwhelmed! says:

    I just found out about this today through Gibee!

    I’ve been doing menu planning for some time now and I linked one of my older posts to show my style.

    I’ve also started a Five Ingredient Friday recipe exchange, to help gather quick and easy recipes for my weekly menu. I’d love to get more participants in the recipe exchange.

    Stacy says:

    I’ve been doing menu plans for years and posting them in the message forums at our family website. I don’t think anyone reads them, or cares, so I think I would really like to start posting them in my blog instead. :)

    I just found this today, so too late to play for this week, but I’d like to play next week. I snagged your header graphic from the post, hope that was alright!

    Great idea and thanks for doing this. Have a wonderful day!

    Happy to find a great menu planning blog! With a tight budget, I feel like I might be cooking the same things over and over so it is always wonderful to find some other ideas! Thanks!

    This is a great idea! Hopefully, I can get some new recipes and break up the hum drum!

    I’ll be posting my meal plans weekly now. I’ve found that I just don’t do well if I haven’t planned ahead. This is a vegan blog. http://featheraniweda.wordpress.com/2011/08/21/meal-plan-money-monday/ I can’t figure out why it says I posted it yesterday.

    I’m just writing to make you know of the extraordinary discovery my daughter enjoyed visiting your web site. She mastered too many issues, which included how it is like to possess a great teaching heart to have many people really easily fully grasp various specialized topics. You undoubtedly surpassed our own desires. I appreciate you for churning out those useful, trustworthy, educational and also fun guidance on the topic to Kate.

    Julie says:

    I’ve made a list of my families favorite recipes. Every 2 weeks I have my 13 yr old daughter help me make the menu’s. It’s so much easier then playing the “What do you want for dinner” “I don’t know” game! Recently I’ve started doing the same thing with lunch and breakfast but just a little different. To help us remember to eat more healthy I made a list of cereal fruit proteins and dairy products we like. Each day we each pick our breakfasts and lunches based on the list and what’s in the fridge. As a diabetic I need to remember to cover all the food groups especially fruit and veggies. This took a little time to put together but it has been worth it! My daughter and husband have more variety in their lunches so they aren’t eating the same thing everyday! I’m ready to start trying the freezer cooking. Can’t wait to get started!!
