Hello! Welcome to another edition of Menu Plan Monday and starting our week off on an organized foot. Sometimes I think about how I use to go grocery shopping and it completely boggles my mind. I wouldn’t have any idea what I was going to cook so I’d just walk aimlessly around the grocery store dumping whatever looked good into my cart. No rhyme or reason to it at all. Then throughout the week as I finally decided what I wanted to cook I’d have to head back to the grocery store to pick up missing ingredients. It makes me so sad to think of all the time and money I wasted back then.
Now I love that, with my plan and list in hand, I can be in and out of the grocery store in about half an hour each week. And because I go every Monday morning at 8:30 am I’m usually only one of a handful of people in the store which means no chit chatting or lineups to slow me down. Just the way I like it!
Now let’s see, my menu highlight of last week would have to be the Thai Chicken Fettuccini.
It was easy to prepare and tasted delicious however I would definitely make more sauce next time as I felt there just wasn’t quite enough. I’m a saucy girl, bring on the sauce :)
Alrighty so I put out a call to Twitter looking for recipes this week and some lovely ladies were kind enough to come to my aid. I’m such a huge fan of Twitter…feel free to follow me here if you want.
So here goes:
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Maple Glazed Chicken served with potatoes or fries
Saturday: Spaghetti and meatballs
Simple Supper Sunday (which means one last ditch effort to clean out the fridge before Monday’s grocery shop or something easy like grilled cheese sandwiches and soup)
