Menu Planning Monday #1

One thing I get anxious over is that 4:00 hour when I haven’t a clue what we are having for dinner. So, for a while now I have been planning out our weekly meals so that I know what to expect each day.

Sundays are usually my planning days so that I am ready to go shopping for the week on Monday morning.

Why not share that with you?  Give you a little mental break from that sometimes daunting question, “What are we going to have for dinner?”

And my hope is that you too will share your favorite recipes and we will all be rock stars in the kitchen and our loved ones will be kissing our feet.

Sound good?


Before we start, though, I want to state that I have NOT tried all of the recipes that I will be posting so if it doesn’t turn out don’t come knockin’ on my door. Mmmk? I will provide all of the original sources for each meal as well share any alterations I have made/will be making for our own family as mere suggestions.

AND, the best part, I have provided the shopping list for all ingredients at the bottom in a printable for you! AND have  left extra space so  you can fill in the rest of your shopping list. AND it’s in order by how I navigate through the store so there is no backtracking.

Booyah! All high-fives welcome!

Side note- I am not always great at planning side dishes, so you’re on your own, there.

Here we go!
