Menu Plan Monday ~ 3/15/2010

Meal planning has become a very important part of life in our household. It really helps us stick to our food shopping budget, and also helps us use up what is already stored in our pantry, which in turn also saves us money.

This weekend, we went to our local farm to stock up on meat, and we're finally out of food from our last "freezer cooking day", so this is a fresh new menu!

Since my husband and I both work full time, we rarely have time for breakfast during the week, and we leave so early that the kids don't eat breakfast until they get to daycare. So, we typically only cook breakfast on the weekend. Lunches during the week are typically leftovers from the night before.

Monday: Chicken Paprika Stew *new recipe
Tuesday: ChiliMac (my own creation, recipe to come)
Wednesday: Cheeseburger Soup
Thursday: Leftover night (husband plays volleyball, so it's just me and the kids)
Friday: Pizza Night, we'll be making individual sized pizzas with our choice of toppings
Saturday: Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes, Grilled Cheese, Cheesy Broccoli and Rice with Chicken *new recipe
Sunday: Cinnamon Rolls, Mac and Cheese with Broccoli, White Bean Chicken Chili and cornbread
