Week 12 Menu Plan
I just made a menu plan for my family, and thought I'd share it here. I used to do plans for my readers weekly, but life has gotten in the way, and interest in the plans seemed to ebb. You can find all of the old plans up above under "menu plans" on the tab bar.
We are going to be trying lots of new recipes this week! I'll include the link to the original recipe here, and then I'll be back to critique them. If you try it before me, let me know how it was for you!
When I make menu plans, I don't plan the days. I just plan a list of meals, shop for them, and then cook them as they sound good. Most times, my meal plan lasts for more than a week because of leftovers, or just because of lazy Mac N Cheese nights.
Day 1: Garlic Chicken Pasta with Spinach from Recipe Shoebox with Perfect Dinner Rolls from Mels Kitchen Cafe
Day 2: Delicious Black Bean Burritos
Day 3: Mom's Spaghetti An old favorite! With salad and homemade bread
Day 4: Meatloaf Muffins with potatoes and salad
Day 5: Trinidadian Chicken Curry from Pioneer Woman
Day 6: Chicken Soulvaki pitas with Tzatziki Sauce from Sandra Lee at Food Network
Dessert: Lime and Coconut Crumble bars from Baking Bites
You can find all of the recipes and a shopping list here!
