Menu Plan Monday.....er, Tuesday

A blogger friend of mine (visit her blog here) introduced me to the concept of "Menu Plan Monday" - where women (and men, I'm sure) plan their menus for the week as part of the 'quest to become organized' (a quest which seems to me to be neverending...). Anyway, I thought I'd give it a try, so here goes:

Monday - COSTCO chicken bakes and pizza (healthy, I know, but it is a rare splurge!!)
Tuesday - Red Lentil Soup, Crusty Bread, Steamed Broccoli, Blueberries
Wednesday - Baked Potatoes with cheese and broccoli, Sausage, Strawberries
Thursday - Spinach Crab Quiche, Cherry tomatoes, Grapes
Friday - Soup bar (brocolli cheese, zuppa toscana, sweet corn chowder)
Saturday - leftovers
Sunday - extended Buchanan Family Birthday Potluck

Wish me luck!!! :)

Wow, your family eats a lot healthier than ours I think. And you must cook a lot more. I can't figure out how to cook dinner with a newborn it seems.

Wow! You are an amazing woman! Can we come over for dinner??? I love making menus--I don't waste near as much money at the grocery store! Sounds like a great plan!

Great idea, I've found having a menu when I go shopping helps a TON, even if I don't follow it exactly. When we were in Japan I had a 6 day a week monthly menu. Every Sun we ate one thing, every mon a different thing for a whole month. Yes, it was a little old by the last week but it made grocery shopping and cooking sooo easy! And I completely changed it the next month. It worked great then, but I've never been able to get back on the same schedule. Maybe someday...
