Menu Plan February 3-9

When I make a menu plan, it only includes dinner each week night, and then lunch and dinner on the weekends.  We try to eat most of those meals together as a family, but of course it doesn't always work out that way.

I do assign each thing to a certain day when I write things down, but I frequently end up moving things around to another day, depending on what we have going on, or what I'm actually in the mood to cook.

Yesterday we had super bowl snack foods, and left over pizza.  I didn't really cook any meals all day.

Tonight we are having barbeque pork sandwiches with green beans,  fresh fruit, and leftover birthday cake.

Tomorrow we are probably going to end up going out for dinner, since Elliott has basketball practice and we have parent teacher conferences as well.

Wednesday I'm making the cheesy chicken strips that were on the menu plan for Saturday (we ended up eating leftovers instead), with salad and macaroni and cheese.

Thursday we'll have red beans and rice that I cook in the crockpot all day.

Friday we will probably have hamburger helper, corn, and salad.

Saturday for lunch, we're going to do a picnic in the car (carrots, olives, cucumber slices, sandwiches, and fruit cups) after Elliott's basketball game.

Saturday night my sister will cook, but I don't think she has decided what yet.

I move my menu around each week too. Something always pops up where we don't do dinner as a family one night a week, so I have to push things back or rearrange depending on the time frame I have to work with. Glad to see I'm not the only one who has to do that :)

I'm starting a menu this week (we're grocery shopping tonight). First time in a long time that I've done it.

I like your car picnic idea. :)
