  • Wow, I wish I were this organized. It's pretty easy for today and tomorrow, because those are my days off- so, chicken and shrimp for those two nights. The others, well, whatever I can grab the fastest when I get off work (it's just me this week at home, so I don't have to worry about cooking for others!).

  • havent made it up yet. but I DO like to plan it out. my weeks are much more stress free when the whole menu is laid out ahead of time. with 3 busy kids I am running from 3-7 Mon - Thur.... knowing what is for dinner makes mama a little less stressed.

  • Tonight, veal & spaghetti. Tomorrow Joe (a friend of the family) is coming over to make a whole chicken and red potatoes. Then the next three days (pay day and grocery day is Thursday) I have the options of chicken & rice, more veal & spaghetti, chicken & biscuits, potatoes & kielbasa, or Salisbury steaks and baked potatoes. What ever doesn't get made rolls over to next week's menu since everything is frozen.

  • Oh and breakfast/lunch/snack, depending on when we get up or are hungry, is anything from PB&J, bananas, oranges, leftovers, bagels & cream cheese, or what ever I baked as of late (cookies, pie, banana bread).
