The Weekly Plan {Oct 29th}


Ah, the plan.  While I may not always follow it to the letter, this little thing sure does help keep my week on track.

How about you?  Do you menu plan each week?  Sometimes I look back and think of how I ever did the whole it's-4 o'clock-what-are-we-having-for-dinner thing.  I did that for years, but after menu-planning for nearly 5 years I can't even begin to tell you how much stress I have avoided--and how much $$ I've saved by planning.

Last week's plan went very well, but I have a couple of roll-over meals due to schedule changes.  Just makes this week's plan even easier!

Monday:
-Homeschool
-Laundry
-Change sheets
-Dinner: Chicken Crepes with green beans

Tuesday:
-Homeschool
-Clean bathrooms
-Dinner: Individual Chicken Pot Pies

Wednesday:

-Dinner: Hawaiian Baked Ham & Swiss Sammies (my hubby has been just dying to try these since seeing them on Pinterest)

Thursday:

-Dinner: Beef Stroganoff (in the crockpot)

Friday:

Saturday:
