Happy Monday, y'all! I hope that everyone had a great weekend. Frank and I had a semi-productive weekend. We visited with family and decluttered our guestroom (AKA: The Dumping Ground). We even scheduled a yard sale for later this month. Also, we discussed finances and talked about changes that we think need to be made around our home. All in all, we had a very good weekend.
Back on subject now: Menu planning has long been hailed as an important aspect of getting organized. It certainly helps on the budget. For me, half of the problem with supper is figuring out what to cook. Menu planning gives you the guideline to go by. More times than not I will change up my plan some. On a night that I have spaghetti scheduled, I may feel more like tacos. But, it is good to know that we have a PLAN. Without further ado, here's this week's menu:
Monday: Chicken Tortilla Soup (me) and BLTs (Frank)
Tuesday: Tacos (me) and Breakfast for supper (Frank)
Wednesday: Bertolli Shrimp Scampi with Linguine Pasta
Thursday: Beef Roast with veggies
Friday: You're On Your Own
Saturday: Hamburger Steaks, Boiled Potatoes, mac and cheese
Sunday: Chicken Salad on crackers
In the beginning of this week, you will notice that Frank and I are eating separate meals. This is because I am working tonight and tomorrow night. He can cook his own supper but I rely on quick, microwavable meals.
