Monday menu planning

I haven’t done much advanced menu planning lately because I have 30lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast, 22lbs of ground beef and I am not sure how many cheap cuts of beef in my freezer (lots! they had London Broil on sale for $1.99 a pound back in January). So I have more or less known what was for dinner – chicken or beef & have been falling back on tacos, meatloaf, broiled beef, rolled stuffed chicken and chicken nuggets with random breading, and the occasional frittata (18 egg set, BOGO!).  But it’s gotten a tad boring. So yesterday I dug out my recipe cards and we will be having

Thai inspired noodles with beef & veggies

Cider vinegar braised chicken & potatoes

Chipoltle chicken rolls with avocado dipping sauce

BBQ chicken pizza

and the usual suspects


Mini meat loaves

(which later become) spaghetti with meat balls

Goldfish breaded chicken strips

Scotch eggs & salad

Soup and sandwiches

Plus we have a parent teacher conference during dinner one night so that will be mac & cheese and I have bunco one night so that will be fish sticks and broccoli noodles.

DH will also make dinner one night, either pork chops & applesauce or pancakes and bacon.

Wow, I'm so jealous that you are able to plan that much...I am awful at getting that far ahead! Your menus sound yummy!

We do menu planning and that is essential to eating healthly and not eating out or ordering out. We love Tacos and mini meatloafs (we use 99% ground turkey instead of beef). YUMMY.

I try to plan out the whole weeks meals, but rarely do they all get made. Yours sound great!

Do you bake or fry your scotch eggs? I've so been lusting after these...

Dang, girl. Aren't you ambitious! I'm feeling good if we just have something to eat by 6 o'clock!

Good for you for planning your menu!

I've been planning our meals out for the week and it definitely helps relieve my stress level!
