Menu Plan Monday, February 8th

It’s time to get ready for the new week. And part of that prep is to make our meal plan for this week. Because when you have a plan for your meals, at least you know you’ll be eating well all week.

Even though I share our meal plan each week, I really don’t enjoy meal planning. It’s not something I look forward to doing.

But I do encourage you to meal plan too, even if it isn’t your favorite tasks too.

I find it’s something I need to do to help keep our grocery expenses down, to keep us from eating out to often, and keep us from eating the same meals over and over again.

I will usually plan our meals for a month at a time. I post our meal plan here each week but I only meal plan once a month.

I find it’s easier to streamline the process and only have to meal plan once a month instead of every week. I’ve gotten to where I can plan a month’s worth of meals in about an hour.

So if you are like me and meal planning isn’t your favorite thing, give planning a month worth of meals at a time a try.

Now here’s what’s cooking at our house this week…

  1. Thanks for sharing your menu, Shelly. My kids love having BBQ chicken, too. We’ll be eating out on Friday. We’ll be heading to Portillo’s. I don’t know if they have Portillo’s restaurants in your area, but if they do, I highly recommend this place. They have the best dipped Italian beef sandwiches around. 🙂
