Menu Plan Monday: Is this going to be my pattern?

Two weeks ago, I didn't follow my menu plan for the second half of the week, and the same thing happened last week. Again, I firmly believe that having a menu plan I don't follow still helps me stay on track with cooking, as we didn't eat out. BUT - it does seem silly to make a plan if I'm never going to follow it. :P

Monday - Roast Beef Hash (using beef leftover from last Friday, because I cooked the beef on Friday instead of Thursday), Salad, Buttermilk Biscuits

Tuesday - Breakfast: Pancakes, Scrambled Eggs with Cabbage, Sausage

Wednesday - Shoyu [Soy Sauce] Chicken in the Slow Cooker (I'll write up a recipe for this soon), Rice, mystery veggie from the Farmer's Market

Thursday - Chicken Enchiladas (from the freezer), Refried Beans, Salad

Friday - Japanese food (if i can find appropriate ingredients at a new, closer market)

Saturday - leftovers

Cathy, give yourself a break! It takes a long time to stick with a new habit. Even on the weeks when we don't eat each meal on the plan, we still have those groceries on hand. I tend to just move the meals around depending on the schedule for that day. It all works out in the end. :)

@Gina - Thanks, that's what I'm discovering!

@Anon - I'll definitely work on it!
