Menu Plan Monday ~ May 18-24

I know I am late with this but it was a holiday yesterday for us and I just wasn’t into menu planning. Today I’m not totally into it either so I’m cheating and using from I’m an Organizing Junkie. I just changed some of the days around. This week I’m going to make an effort to make prepared frozen meals and then have my plans centre around them. For this week though, it’s … Monday: Steak, potatoes, mixed vegetables Tuesday: Omelettes Wednesday: Homemade cheeseburgers, fries, corn, and green beans Thursday: Maple Glazed Chicken served with salad and steamed carrots Friday:

Once A Month Mom – May Menu

I am VERY excited about this pre-cooking adventure I am about to embark on. Wish me luck … basically these gals at the website have prepared a FREE monthly menu with FREE recipes, grocery list, labels and instructions for having a once-a-month cooking “party” either by yourself or with another “chef extraordinaire”. This should make managing a household’s famous “what’s for dinner” issue a non-issue because you can just go to the freezer and pull out a pre-made, just warm me up dinner! Check it out and let me know if you would like to join me (either online or

Menu Plan Monday ~ March 30, 2009

I was stuck this week for things to plan for the menu but thankfully the Internet and Google have helped me once again. We’re still getting over the cold that has been hanging on for a month (with me at least). I am feeling significantly better but the kids have completely changed their likes and dislikes. This is what I’m going to try out this week – very low-key and kid friendly (I hope!). I also can’t wait for the Once A Month Mom April calendar to come out. I took a look at their March recipe and selected a
