Menu Plan Monday

I'm going to start trying to post our weekly menu on Mondays in an effort to help give some ideas for inexpensive dinners. Every Monday, Organizing Junkie features a Menu Plan Monday roundup where several, ok many, many, blogs add their menu for the week. This is a great way to get menu ideas. Go here to see this week's round up.

Our menu for this week is as follows:

Monday: Bacon Wrapped Chicken with mashed potato and a veg
Tuesday: BBQ Pork Chops in the crockpot with rice and a veg
Wednesday: Pork and Beans with left over pork from Tuesday with bread
Thursday: Sweet and Sour Crockpot Chicken with rice
Friday: something meatless for lent- probably pasta and sauce
Saturday: something else easy- hot dogs and homemade baked french fries
Sunday: 1st Birthday party for our youngest daughter

Every week I write a menu, but I don't always stick right to it. Some days I'll take whatever meat I planned to use and make something different with it. But it is essential for me to make a menu each week so I have a plan to make my grocery list off of.


  1. Although I haven't been writing a menu lately. I totally agree. You have inspired me to start again. Thanks.

  2. Terrific! I fell off of the menu planning wagon a few weeks ago, so you've motivated me to hop back on board! Tonight I'll make cream cheese chicken in the crock pot.

  3. That's great! Menu planning saves so much time, aggrivation, and money!


Please feel free to leave a comment! After I review it, I will be happy to post it!
