menu plan - make your life easier and feel more organized!

Menu Plan Monday – September 8th

menu plan - make your life easier and feel more organized!I do not like not having a menu plan. When life is chaotic, unpredictable, and full, the last thing I want to think about on the fly is dinner.

Last week, I failed to make a menu plan and when things got crazy, ordering carry-out was my go to.

Accept grace. Move on.

This week I’m starting fresh, walking in new mercies, and making a plan for my family. Since our breakfast and lunch is pretty much the same from week to week, I’m just going to share our dinner plan for the week. If you’re interested, you can see our regular breakfast and lunch menu plans here.

We bought a quarter cow several months ago along with chicken and fish in bulk. We ran out of most all of our chicken and our fish stores are low. Since we have a huge road trip coming up, I want to scrimp and save wherever I can before we leave. This means our week is going to be heavy on the beef because it’s what I have on hand. I’m thinking of this week as an eat from the pantry (and freezer) sort of challenge.
