Menu Plan Sunday: April 27 – May 3

Have you missed menu plan Sunday? I sure have. It hasn’t been too great on my bank account. I hate those last minute what’s for dinner questions and not having the answer. So I need to get back into this. And what better week than one where it’s very important that I monitor financially what I’m eating. Since I’m taking part in the Live Below the Line campaign again and can only eat and drink $1.50 worth of food I have been putting lots of thought into my menu this week. I start this on Monday so I’m going all out tonight.

Menu Plan Sunday: April 6 – April 12

We are solidly into April and I am already feeling my typical April pressure with two of my kids birthdays, Easter, and just everything else that happens. So not having to do the what’s for dinner dance every night will be nice.

Now it’s your turn, what’s cooking in your kitchen?

Menu Plan Sunday: March 30 – April 5

I am having such a hard time doing some basic things lately. I make my menu, but it seems crazy life things are getting in the way of fulfilling it. I need to get better at this. I need to get the family more involved in actually helping me make the menu. I think that’s part of the problem is I have been deciding a lot of this on my own and then no one wants what I said we were going to have. That and I’m exhausted lately with all of the running around so cooking never appeals to me. This has to change. This might be a good week to change that because I already have a few I’m not cooking nights because of plans this week.

You can join in too and make your own menu. Just link it up on the bottom. Maybe we can get some ideas from each others menus. So grab my button and link up your menu below.

Menu Plan Sunday: March 16 – March 22

I completely skipped my menu last week and it totally threw me for a loop. It was a difficult week to begin with so it did not help at all that we had to add the What’s for dinner dance to the mix every night. So I want to prevent that from happening again. I don’t have too crazy of a week this week though. But none the less this will still be one less thing to worry about. I hope you’ll join me and grab my button below and link up your own menu for the week at the bottom of this post.

Sunday: Eating out.
Monday: Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m Irish, but we don’t do Corned Beef and Cabbage. Perhaps because it’s not the traditional Irish meal anyways. So we’ll go with a hearty Chicken Stew.
Tuesday: Ziti and meatballs.
Wednesday: Tacos.
Thursday: Chicken picatta with carrots and egg noodles.
Friday: Homemade pizza.
Saturday: Paninis with carrots.

That’s what’s cooking in my kitchen this week, now what’s cooking in your kitchen?

We have a crazy week on our hands. The kids have a few days off for a winter break and my husband is on vacation. So this weeks menu is mostly just an outline to hopefully help us through the week. But since I don’t really know what we’re going to end up doing and when exactly who knows what will happen with dinner. It will be nice to have an idea of what we’re going to do though.
