I am running behind today in posting my menu and linking to the Menu Plan Monday meme as well. I think sometimes we get so busy with life and being a mom and wife that we don’t always get to do the things we want to…when we want to. But, I figure that slow is perhaps better than not doing it at all. At least I am trying, and that is progress in the right direction.
One of my very favorite quotes is by Neil A Maxwell. Here is what he said: “Eternal things are always done in the process of time. Direction is initially more important than speed.” I think that is so very true! And I like to think that even something as simple as menu planning is indeed an eternal thing, as it benefits my family and nourishes them physically so they can better do for others.
So here are our menu plans for this week:
Monday–Ribeye Steak, Baked Potatoes, Green Beans (It’s a celebration night in our home. So a special meal is being prepared.)
Tuesday–Hamburgers, French Fries
Wednesday–Fish Sticks, Mac & Cheese
Thursday–Teriyaki Steak and Vegetables, Rice
Friday–Pizza, Cheesy Salad (This is green salad with cheese sprinkled on top. My son likes to call it Cheesy Salad.)
Saturday–Chicken Foldovers, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Salad
Sunday–Oven BBQ Chicken, Twice Baked Potatoes, Green Beans, Brownie Sundaes
Yes, I realize that this Sunday is the same as last Sunday. However, we had a change in dinner plans and were invited to eat with my BIL and family. So we actually had Roast Chicken, Peas and Carrots, Potato Salad, and Apple Crisp instead of the BBQ Chicken I had planned. I hate to waste a great menu item, so I re-scheduled it for this week instead.
