I discovered a while back how much easier the week goes if I have a menu plan. Usually on Thursday night, I look at the calendar for next week to see what we have going, look at the weather forecast for the upcoming week, and then go through Pinterest to figure out what I will be making for dinner. As I plan out the menu for the following week, I also make my grocery list. I review the recipes I will be using and list anything I need from the grocery store. I also take into consideration anything I have on hand and/or in the freezer.
With all that said…here’s the menu for next week!
Sun: roast and veggies in the crock pot Here is a FABULOUS roast recipe!
Mon: Christmas day chicken served with cous cous and green beans
Tue: chicken chili and cornbread (I actually have these already made and in the freezer) The link to the recipe here isn’t the one that I use—I just wing it—but it looks alot like what I make.
Wed: Homemade mac and cheese and salad
Thur: chicken tortellini soup
Fri: we are getting burgers and fries—or some other take out. 🙂
