It has been a very, very long time since I've had a written menu plan, or even an un-written menu plan. I've been doing a lot of "you mean we have to eat again today?!" thinking, then scrounging around in my head trying to come up with what I can get made for dinner in the time that is left. Some days I would come up with a plan earlier in the day, many days it was mid-afternoon or *ahem* even closer to dinner time before I'd have a plan (which by that time really is not a plan, it's a panic).
(My husband just showed me something on the guitar that he is practicing... it is totally foreign to me, but I'm happy that his practice is working even if "it's weird! But it makes perfect sense!" :-) )
I have also been going through an extended time of little desire to cook or bake. I am hoping that having a menu plan will help that.
Since Susannah is older (all of her almost 2 1/2 years "older") I have started thinking through breakfasts a little more. This will be the first time I've planned a breakfast menu.
Monday: Breakfast - Oatmeal
Dinner - Fish, Rice, Squash (if I can get some from my MIL) or another veg.
Tuesday: Breakfast - Pumpkin Muffins (already made), Yogurt/Fruit Smoothies
Dinner - Chicken Fajitas
Wednesday: Breakfast - Eggs & Toast
Dinner (church night) - Hamburger Pot Pie
Thursday: Breakfast - Baked Oatmeal (I'm on the lookout for a GOOD recipe. Send 'em my way!)
Dinner - Liver w/ Onions, Mashed Potatoes/Gravy, Corn on the Cob
Friday: Breakfast - French Toast, Yogurt/Fruit or Cottage Peaches*
Dinner - Lasagna, Garlic Bread, Salad
Saturday: Breakfast - Cereal
Dinner - Leftovers
Sunday: Breakfast - Egg Casserole
Lunch - Crock-pot Meal or Leftovers
Have a great week!
Oh, I almost forgot! *Cottage Peaches is what Susannah came up with for Cottage Cheese and Peaches. So now I just call it "Cottage Peaches". :-)
