Menu Planning - Week of 11/8/10

Another week of meal planning. After enjoying a movie with my mama on Sunday, I sat at home perusing through cookbooks and food blogs trying to find some delicious new meals. After about an hour or so, I decided it was taking me wayyyy too long and I was getting frustrated thinking about how I still needed to go to the grocery, then bring all of them inside and put them away all alone, and then cook and do dishes! Meal planning is supposed to make things easier, not more complicated! PJ had to work a late shift so menu planning was all on me. I finally decided to settle with some old tried but true recipes that we already know we love. Plus a new chili recipe. We are on a quest to find the best chili, in our opinions, and we won't stop until we do! We tried one a week or two ago and it wasn't anything special. I was excited to try Martha Stewart's real deal chili. Here is this week's meal plan that I came up with all on my own. And of course I am posting this after Monday, but that's quite all right in my book. I am linking up to Menu Plan Mondays.

Sunday 11/7:  breakfast for dinner

Monday 11/8:  real deal chili with crackers, (was also supposed to have this cornbread side item but it was late and I didn't feel like making anything else)

Tuesday 11/9:  chicken divan w/ green beans & bacon

Wednesday 11/10:  eat out (tag football night)

Friday 11/12:   out to eat at Benihana for a friend's birthday

Saturday 11/13:  basil scallops w/ mac and cheese for two

Sunday 11/14:  chicken alfredo w/ corn

I've been trying to do more of this lately and have been somewhat successful. It sure makes it easier to figure out what to cook when it's 5 pm!

It does make life so much easier when I come home after work and don't have to stress about what to cook. And less trips to the grocery :) Good luck with your menu planning!

We totally had breakfast for dinner last night! Sometimes it's the perfect thing!
