Menu Planning 01/06 – 01/10/2014

2014. How weird is it to type THAT?!!? I remember twenty years ago thinking how FAR AWAY our “big” class reunions were. Come to find out – NOT THAT FAR. Anyway. 2014. I thought I’d kick the year off with a bang and share some menu planning!

Monday, 01/06/2013 – We have Krav from 5:30 – 6:30 pm. And I have somewhere to be at 7:00pm. So I’ll have a lasagna prepped for the family to pop in the oven.

Tuesday, 01/07/2013 – I’ll be off work at noon but will be at the Krav gym from 5:00 – 7:00pm. So that morning I’ll toss some chicken breasts in the crockpot and cover with raspberry vinegrette dressing & garlic powder. Sounds odd but my boys LOVE it. We’ll round that out with some rolls and a veggie of some sort. Probably green beans. Because easy.

Wednesday, 01/08/2013 – Classes haven’t started yet so I’ll be home but the older two have youth group at 6:30pm. So I’ll have a ham in the crock pot and potatoes ready to boil for mashed potatoes. And broccoli. Must have broccoli.

Thursday, 01/09/2013 – We have Life Group at 6:30pm. Dinner will be fajitas. My mother posted a recipe for oven cooked fajita stuff so I’ll prep that the night before to pop into the oven as soon as I’m home from work. Yummers. I hope.

Friday, 01/10/2013 – I don’t have anything on the calendar. Well. I DO. But I’m not going. Because I’ll be gone all day Saturday. Planned dinner? Ham & bean soup & homemade bread (yay for bread makers!). Warm. Comforting. Easy.

Friday plans often get changed. And I rarely “plan” the weekends. Because….um…I just don’t. We eat a lot of sandwiches & left overs unless I get REALLY productive and put something together. But otherwise, that’s it. That’s the plan. I use very few recipes and I don’t take the time to document when I cook. I couldn’t be a “food blogger”. But there’s a glimpse into my week and our menu. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
