Welcome to another week of menu planning! Menu planning becomes especially important during this busy holiday season yet it’s one of the first things that seems to get neglected in all there is to do. For your sanity, please let me encourage you not to do that. You already have so much on your mind right now that taking that half hour or hour to plan your weekly menu today means that for the rest of the week you don’t have to think about what you’re going to cook. Mind you, you still have to cook it (I’m not a miracle worker people! :)) but advancing planning specifically allows you to chose meals that are quick and easy to prepare in order to free up time for other things. And at this time of the year “extra” time is going to come in really really handy I’m sure, not to mention the sanity it saves on top of it all!
As you can see I get a little excited talking about this stuff :) Earlier this week I had the opportunity to sit down with Kelly over at Wisdom Begun to discuss menu planning and why I love it so much. If you are interested you can check out that interview here.
Last week’s menu highlight definitely goes to the Honey Hoisin Chicken. Can we say YUMMY! Oh my gosh, I could literally drink the sauce up. And of course the fact that it was so easy to throw together as well didn’t hurt either :)
So here is what is on our menu for this week:
Monday: Beef and Vegetable Noodle Bowl
Tuesday: Ravioli Chicken Casserole
Wednesday: Honey-Garlic Pork Chops
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Saturday: Spaghetti with meat sauce
Simple Supper Sunday
