Menu Plan Monday ~ March 21st + giveaway!

First day of spring yesterday and we had snow.  What’s up with that!

Sorry about MPM going up late last week.  I forgot to adjust for the time change in WordPress….oopsy daisy.  It’s all fixed now :)

Today I’m excited to tell you about a new menu planning resource book called 7-Day Menu Planner For DummiesAND I’ve got a giveaway to go along with it!

7-Day Menu Planner For Dummies is the perfect book for any family looking for a structured, nutritional approach to daily meal planning. It contains over a year’s worth of weekly dinner ideas and recipes that take an average of thirty minutes to prepare, contain an average of thirty percent calories from fat, and use common ingredients to save time and money.

· Features budget-friendly family meals that are both quick and healthy
· Dinner for each week of the night is associated with a theme—for example: Family Sunday, Kids Monday, Express Tuesday, Budget Wednesday, Heat and Eat Thursday, Meatless Friday, and Easy Entertaining Saturday

In this time of budget, time, and health consciousness, 7-Day Menu Planner For Dummies gives families just what they need to easily plan the right meals!

Now I haven’t read this book myself but I thought it sounded great when I heard about it, perfect for those needing some menu planning encouragement and inspiration.   If you are interested in winning a copy of the 7-Day Menu Planner for Dummies book please let me know in the comments.  Giveaway will close on Friday, March 25th at 4:00 pm PST.  Open to everyone!

So every week I ask my hubby if he has any requests for dinner in the upcoming week.  This week his only response was something with bacon.  His wish is my command and I think I found a recipe he’s really going to like.  I’ll keep you posted! :)

Alright friends, here is what we’ll be eating this week:

Monday: Chicken Enchiladas

Tuesday: Beef Florentine Pasta Soup with Basil & Cream (I’ll use 1/2 & 1/2)

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Pot Roast with potatoes and veggies

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pineapple Pork Chops served with rice and broccoli

Saturday: Pasta Carbonara (my bacon dish!)

Simple Supper Sunday

WHAT’S ON YOUR MENU THIS WEEK?

    Laura – the pasta carbonarra sounds yummy – I may get the kids to consider that one for their kids cook night!

    Also, you would be so proud of me – I finally stopped procrastinating and reorganized the kitchen freezer. It took all of 20 minutes and the transformation was amazing. Too bad I didn’t take before pictures but I did get an after picture.

    Have a great week!

    That Beef Florentine soup sounds like something I need to put on my menu (except I wouldn’t want to cook the pasta that long, and I don’t have beef, so maybe turkey…)- the kids are away this week, so my menu has LOTS of vegetables- I’m looking forward to meals with NO complaints. :-)

    I keep forgetting to mention how much I love your redesign- WOW, lots of info, easy to find, nice to look at… you go girl!!

    Ann Washburn says:

    I am always looking for recipes that are easy to make, don’t have what I call “fancy”–stuff that I probably don’t have on hand all the time–ingredients, and also quick, since my kitchen isn’t conductive to spending alot of time in it–read lack of counter space for spreading stuff out, so I can’t do the option of making several meals at one time to then freeze up–I only manage to do about two meals at a time.

With preparing to leave for a trip, it was helpful to have accountability to get my head around what dinner will be each week (even though I’m planning to only shop through my fridge, freezer and pantry).

    7-Day Menu Planner For Dummies sounds like just the thing I need to get my menu planning under control.

And we just found out we are expecting baby #4 in November, so my planning time will be at the bare minimum for a while! ;-) Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity!
