My first ever Menu Plan Monday

Monday: Spaghetti and Meatballs (Something very quick and easy as we have a football club meeting tonight)

Tuesday: Home made Meat pie, Potato patties and mixed vegetables

Wednesday: Chilli Con Carne, Mashed Potato (Chicken for the fussy girls)

Thursday: Tacos, with rice/mince filling and plenty of salad

Friday: Sausage casserole with baked potatos and mixed vegetables

Saturday: Lasagne and salad (Chicken again for the fussy girls)

Sunday: French country chicken and rice (Vege burgers for DH who hates chicken!)

There - my first attempt at menu planning... fingers crossed we stick to it! The best bit is that we have EVERYTHING we need here already so no excuses.

I havent bothered with dessert planning, some nights we have dessert, some we cant be
bothered :o)

Special thanks to Laura at for having such easy to use instructions on her website to make it so easy for twits like me to join in on this great idea (I hope I did everything right!)

Just hang in there. Don't think of your menu as an ironclad rule. If you have to swap nights, or you have a terrible day and hit the drive through, all is not lost. Just adjust. You'll find yourself over time hitting the drive-through and the grocery store less often, which your wallet will thank you for. If you find yourself with a ton of leftovers freeze them for an easy night in the future rather than having leftovers several days in a row.

Your blog title cracked me up. Good luck with your menu planning, I know it's helped me but then again, I only have one kiddo and a sometimes absent hubby.

Thanks for sharing and have a great week... my menu is up here.
