Menu Plan Monday and More

Here we go with another week beginning...they go by so quickly these days! Last week's plan went really well and made my busy week much smoother. Here's the lineup for this week:

Monday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, butter beans
Tuesday: Monterey spaghetti, garlic bread, salad
Wednesday: grilled salmon, pasta, veggie
Thursday: (small group) *Cajun* theme, but I'm not yet sure what I'm making
Friday: grilled chicken, twiced baked potatoes, veggie
Saturday: probably leftovers

If you haven't tried menu planning, you should think about it! It has made my life so much less stressful in that area. Head over to Laura's @ I'm an Organizing Junkie for some more inspiration.

On another note....

School begins for my little princess in the morning. We're starting to homeschool with kindergarten. I had originally planned all along to begin school the day after Labor day, but after realizing that we were going to have houseguests I decided to wait till this Monday. I didn't want to start in the middle of the week--and it bought me a little more time to get ready. But, frankly, I still don't feel quite ready. I'm really excited and so is the Princess, but I feel so clueless. Hopefully that's just first-year jitters, I think so anyway. I'll let you know how the first day goes!

What a great idea, to plan the meals for the whole week. I'm organized but not when it comes to food.
I bet it really helps with shopping!
