I've been trying to Meal Plan for a while now. This is my first post to Menu Plan Monday hosted by Laura at I'm An Organizing Junkie.
I'm a list maker. I love to make lists. But I rarely stick to them. I thought that posting them to a blog would make me more likely to stick to a plan. And so far (the past week or two), it seems to be working.
Last week was pretty hectic. We tried to stick to the menu as much as possible, but we strayed a bit. But I am happy to say that we had very little waste this week. 99% if the leftovers were used up and only a few things from the veggie bin (several weeks old) needed to be tossed. I never got around to thawing the pork loin last week, so I will do that this week and make the pork & sauerkraut that I intended to make last week.
Here's my plan for dinners this week:
Monday: Crock Pot Beef Stew, biscuits
Tuesday: Spaghetti & meatballs, garlic bread
Wednesday: Crock Pot Whole Chicken, scalloped potatoes, carrots, biscuits
Thursday: Orzo with chicken and sauteed veggie "relish", garlic bread
Friday: Pork chops, stuffing, mashed potatoes, biscuits
Sunday: Pork & Sauerkraut (crock pot), mashed potatoes, corn
