Menu Plan Monday: Week of 4/9/2012

I'm finding that planning the menu a couple of weeks in advance helps me think farther ahead about cooking, so that it's easier to get the shopping and cooking done. I like it! This week, I'll prepare a menu for the rest of April, and I'll plan a month-long menu for May. ^_^

Here's what's on tap this week:

Monday - Meatloaf Burgers, Sauteed Green Beans, Garlic Butterhorns, Macaroni Salad

Tuesday - Takigomi gohan (rice cooked with seasonings and vegetables), Miso Chicken, Seasoned kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) or daikon (Japanese radish), Strawberry Shortcake

Wednesday - Roast Chicken, Flatbread, Garlic Sauce, Steamed Broccoli

Thursday - Pizza using artisan bread dough, Salad

Friday - Chicken Salad Sandwiches (using leftover chicken), Fruit

Saturday - {not sure what our plans are}

Sunday - Dinner out

Planning meals in advance sure is helpful. Of late, I've been planning my menus by the Publix sales that come out on Wednesdays. Gotta love BOGO!

Oh yes, that's definitely a great way to save on groceries!
