Menu 6-1-10

I don’t know why I struggle with meal planning so much!  I need to get back in the swing of planning and cooking meals and I find that I do better when I post menus here.  It holds me accountable!

tonight:   grilled turkey burgers with leftover homemade mac and cheese from last night

tomorrow:  chicken enchiladas

Thursday:  bbq beef cups

Friday:  homemade pepperoni pizza

Saturday:  steaks cooked on the grill and baked potatoes

Sunday:  grilled brats and homemade baked beans

Also, the lettuce is ready in our garden, so we’ll be having side salads with every meal too.

Menu 3-28-10

I’ve fallen off the menu planning wagon.  I’m giving it a try again this week, but don’t be surprised if I don’t keep up with it.

With warmer weather, we are likely to grill out often and usually that’s decided at a moments notice.  So, I’ll be even more unstructured with my meals/menus throughout the spring and summer.  Maybe we’ll go back to menu planning later on, and I’ll start posting them again.  But, there is talk of the hubs changing shifts again at work, so sure as the world, when I get one routine down, it will change!
