What's on your menu this week?! Have you ever menu planned before? I've been doing it for about four or five years now. I had some questions these past few weeks about menu planning. We also got into some discussion about how I go shopping. Well, as requested I'll be posting a Q&A today! I hope any of you who are interested in menu planning will get started and not be intimidated.
- How much time to I take planning? Not long at all! First thing I do is check my pantry and make my meals out of what I have first. Second I check blogs for FREE items and I'm done! 2 hours tops.
- Do you use any system or website? I know there are lots of apps or sites to help you plan or where to find coupons but I don't use any. The one place I do check out is WeUseCoupons.com. I really don't think I would ever pay to have someone tell me what I should make.
- Do you ever get stuck in a rut? Oh yeah! One week we had tacos 3 times! But each day I'll do something different, add grilled onions, add a different spice.
- How much do you spend weekly? I spend no more than $100/week. This past month I think I only spend $50/week!
So let's get to this weeks menu.... what are ya'lls thoughts on making a month of menus?? I'm going to be adding Saturday & Sunday to menu planning since we did have plans to go out but plans changed and we took about 40 minutes to decide what to eat! lol
Monday - Chicken on Wheels (pasta with vegetables)
Tuesday - Lazyman Chicken Enchiladas
Wednesday - OTE (Dairy Queen)
Thursday - Baked Fried Chicken Strips w/ Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - BBQ Chicken Burgers
Sunday - Grilled Sammies
