  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 9/30/2013

    Menu planning is not my favorite thing to do, but we really do eat healthier when I cook, and of course we save quite a bit of money, too. So I went ahead and planned out my entire menu for October. I know that I’ll have to adjust the menu each week, as changes to our schedule come up. But experience has taught me that I’m much more likely to plan a weekly menu if I have one already planned that I just need to tweak.

    I also find that planning my menu a month in advance, with all of the recipes I’ve pinned to my Pinterest boards in front of me, makes me more enthusiastic about cooking as I peruse all of the meals I’ve yet to try.

    Here’s what we’re having this week:

    Monday – Pasta Bolognese, Steamed Broccoli {didn’t have this last week}

    Tuesday – Bacon-Wrapped Tofu, Rice, some kind of vegetable

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Dinner out

    Friday – Skillet Chicken with Apricots and Capers, some kind of side

    Saturday – Beef and Gorgonzola Toasts with Herb-Garlic Cream, Crudite

    Sunday – Overnight Caramel French Toast, Sausage, Fruit

    1. your menu looks great. i am going to check out the apricot chicken recipe. i wish i could plan for a month but i never know what each week is going to be like since sometimes the baby goes to her dads extra days so i dont always need to cook a big meal when she isnt home. so im sticking with a week at a time but i always have ideas for the month:)
      i would love if you would stop by my blog and check out my Menu Plan and answered my question of the week about easy breakfast ideas.
      Thank you:)
