Menu Plan Monday: Something New!

Doing something New this week/month. I am going to menu plan for the month!! Crazy. I have never done this before. I also plan, don't know if I'll actually do it, but I am going to prep some meals and make two batches and put one in the freezer. I figured I would try it out this month since it's going to be a busy month and we won't be home a majority of the time, so that might make it a smidge easier. Wish me luck!

If you have any tips or suggestions that would make this easier, please leave a comment below! Check out my Instagram to follow my journey and progress. 

This weeks shopping list: onion and tomato

Month of Breakfast: For Breakfast I want to have themed days. So every "Monday" we will have the same thing. I think that will work out fine. Two days we will have cereal and oatmeal. I'm also going to do freezer eggs for Wednesday, So i'm going to take a whole dozen, scramble them and freeze them and that should be more than enough for the month. And I think I actually have to buy cereal! Oh and hubby will be happy about the barbacoa! We started buying it raw frozen for so much cheaper. I just made one yesterday, and there was no leftovers, so I gotta put oatmeal on there for backup and gotta buy two more, that should last us through the month.

Mondays: Cereal
Tuesdays: Barbacoa/Oatmeal
Wednesdays: Scrambled eggs
Thursdays: Fruit Salad/Smoothie
Fridays: Cereal
Saturdays: Oatmeal
Sundays: Barbacoa Tacos

Lunch: I usually always have leftovers for lunch and think that should stay the same. But latley there has been no leftovers. So this is the plan: Sandwiches, Tuna and Salads.

Mondays Oriental, beef or chicken
Tuesdays: Taco/Buritto with rice and beans
Wednesay: Crock-pot Meal
Thursday: Pinterest Meal
Friday: Italian/Pizza
Saturday/Sunday: Pantry Meals 

Eating Out Days: Weekend of the 12th. Christmas Week; Dec 24-26th (Traveling to Corpus)

Eeek! I'm excited, I think this will work out great. I will prep on Sunday, cook beef for Tuesdays taco nights and take out what I will put in the crockpot on Wed and put it in the fridge and choose a meal I'll plan on Thursday! I'll also chop/slice veggies for the week as well! It sounds easy! And I haven't started for this week. I have an hour till I have to go pick up the girls from school, so CHOP TOO IT! lol
