Hey gang! Last week I got some great comments from ladies just trying out menu planning for the first time. They were so encouraging to me and I hope they are to you as well.

“Thanks for the templates for both the Grocery List and the Menu Planner. I have never felt so empowered! I had a crock-pot meal started this morning and when 4:00 p.m. rolled around, I didn’t know what to do with myself! (Ordinarily I’d be trying to decide what to fix for dinner and panicking because I might not have the ingredients I needed.) I ended up playing with my 4 yr. old son during that time, which was a joy! I’m anxious to explore your recipes now. When I get better at this, I’ll send you some of mine.”
Katheryn, another one of my readers commented:
“My 2nd Menu Planning Monday on my blog. I love love love it. I already have my menus for the rest of the month, and am working on September! Thanks for the kick in the fanny to get moving and meal plan. It makes it so much easier when I walk in the door after being gone for 11 hours during the day!”
Now that’s what I’m talking about girls!! Maybe today is the day you give menu planning a try? Go for it!!
So guess what? I had yet another recipe disaster this past weekend. I made some Chocolate Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins and somehow missed the entire second cup of flour. Yep it’s true. Oops. The worst part? There was no Plan B solution for me to somehow salvage them. I had no choice but to throw them away…all 24 of them…grrr. I will definitely try to make them again though and this time I’ll pay more attention to what I’m doing lol.
So here’s what’s on our menu this week:
Monday: Black Bean & Veggie Quesadillas
Tuesday: Kristie’s Magically Moist Chicken served with baked potatoes and broccoli
Wednesday: Asian Steak served with french fries and grilled veggies
Thursday: Fettuccine with Mushrooms and Tomatoes
Friday: Leftover buffet
Saturday: Whole Wheat Waffles and sausages
Simple Supper Sunday
