About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Menu Planning

Menu planning is something I'm trying hard to work on.  My life is only going to get busier once Baby G arrives so I need to get my menu planning in gear.  This week I'm making super simple meals since we have a full week ahead with a busy agenda.  We have a dry erase board in our kitchen so it's very easy to just write the menu on the dry erase board and follow the plan.  I'm only starting with suppers for now.  Mike will normally make his own breakfast and I'm a huge cold cereal fan.  Lunches are super easy since it's just sandwiches or leftovers from the supper the night before.  Here is what is on our supper menu this week:

Monday - Baked Spaghetti and Garlic Bread
Tuesday - Sweet & Sour Chicken
Wednesday - Hot Dogs and Chips
Thursday - Chicken w/ pasta and veggies
Friday - Still to be determined since I haven't planned my grocery shop for this week

I'm happy that I have at least 4 meals planned for this week.  I consider that an accomplishment for me.  LOL

What's on your menu this week?  How do you go about planning your menu and do you normally stick with it?
