Menu Madness

I have been SO disorganized for the past few months. I am determined to get back my mojo! So, to start off this week with a bang, here is my menu plan.

Sunday - Sweet and Smokey beef brisket with mashed potatoes, corn and Outback Steakhouse breadmachine bread

Monday - Pork Chops either grilled or pan fried with Sweet Potato Risotto (made without sausage) and peas

Tuesday - Mac and Cheese with hamburger

Wednesday - Leftovers (Brisket sandwiches? Yum)

Thursday - Chicken Broccoli Couscous

Friday - Jenna's Night (she will be cooking every Friday night for a while) Chicken and Beef Fajitas

Saturday - Vegetable soup of some kind with grilled cheese sammies

Sunday - Malachai turns 3! Dinner out at Pizza buffet.

Since it is Spring Break here, all three kiddos will be home for breakfast and lunch each day. I know that Jenna and I will eat leftovers for lunches or maybe Tuna Pea Wiggle or something similar. The boys usually eat PBJ or chicken nuggets and fries or even pancakes! Breakfasts are iffy. I made waffles today and have some left for the boys breakfast or snacks and I will make a huge batch of pancakes one day soon. They love the little silver dollar ones. I may need to pick up more yogurt and other breakfast foods for Jenna.

I am planning to try to have a baking day one day this week since Jenna is home to help with the boys. It would be great to have muffins in the freezer again! And pizza blanks, cookies and maybe some whoopie pies for snacks. I am also thinking of making some rolls and biscuits to freeze for later baking.

Wish me luck! And head on over to I'm An Organizing Junkie for more menu plans!

Sounds like you have a great plan!! I am in the process of making up my menu plans for the next 2 weeks. Since I will be using just one cookbook and some of my own recipes and freezing some meals, I hope to only cook and bake for one week or so yet have food for the month.

yum... planning meals is such a great idea... I do not do it as much with only Vince and I yet when I had kids it was a must as it made things so much easier

The menu sounds good to me, can I come eat with you? Wish I could do that now and then. I hope Jen is a help to you this week, you could use it. Talk to you soon.

I too am trying to set up my menu in advance. It is always better when I do. Thanks for the reminder to get my butt in gear.

Sounds yummy!
Happy Birthday Malachi!

Was just going through my blog archives and realized we hadn't been in contact in way too long. Hope all is well with you and your family!
