Planning a weekly menu plan each week may seem like a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be that hard. Here are the steps that I use to plan my menu plan for the week.
1. The first thing I do is sit down and look at our family’s schedule for the week. I take note of which nights my husband is at work (dinner is usually very simple these nights). I also look to see which nights we have other things to do. On a busy night, I usually will make dinner in my crock pot so it is all ready to go the minute I walk in the door.
2. Usually I try to figure out what we haven’t eaten in a while. Every week I try to make 1 new recipe. Dinner at home sure gets boring if you eat the same thing every week.
3. After I decide on the recipes that I want to make, I will look around the kitchen to see what ingredients that I already have and what is missing.
4. I make my list and off to the grocery store I go!
Here is what I plan on making for dinner this week:
Sunday: Chicken Stir-fry over rice.
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Turkey with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts.
Wednesday: Busy busy night! Leftovers for dinner
Thursday: Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken over white rice with green beans.
Friday: Buffalo Chicken Tenders
Saturday: Take-Out Pizza
