Menu Plan for the Week of 10/4/09

I love to plan my weekly menus. It gives me such a sense of control over my week. When I plan and shop on Sunday, the week seems to go so smoothly. I do not always follow my plan exactly because so many things happen during the week that can sidetrack me. However, with a good plan, I cook a "delicious and nutritious" meal most nights of the week. I do not specifically "plan" breakfast and lunch, but it is one of my goals for the fall. Here is my plan for the week:

Sunday: Chicken Piccata and steamed carrots.

Monday: Beef Stew with Noodles and homemade dinner rolls.

Tuesday: Jambalaya and homemade birthday cake to celebrate Dan's birthday.

Wednesday: Lemon Chicken for the kids and Garlic Lime Chicken for me (Dan will be home late), brown rice, and steamed broccoli.

Thursday: Dance classes - Spinach Minestrone Soup and homemade dinner rolls.

Friday: Cheeseburger Macaroni and a vegetable

Saturday: Date night - steak, rice and veges for the kids, fresh mozzarella and tomatoes with olive oil, prosciutto, and Italian bread for us.

Join the Organizing Junkie at every Monday for Menu Plan Monday and lots of great ideas for your weekly menu plan!

  1. I notice several MPM participants do they shopping on Sundays.
    Looks like your family is going to have some terrific meals this week.
    I love MPM especially since my husband and I lost our jobs. I'm looking for inexpensive and healthy meals for our family of three.
    Well, gotta get back to the laundry and "Law and Order".
