Menu Madness: May 30 – June 5th (Share Your Ideas!)

menu madness

Alas, I’m not as consistent with menu planning as much as I would like. I do know that when I take the time to make up a menu plan each week (or sometimes every two weeks) I’m more organized, we eat at a reasonable time and we don’t waste money eating out.

As a motivational tactic to keep me consistent, I will be posting my (usually boring!) menus each Friday for the following week. (My menu week goes from Sunday-Saturday.) Hopefully, it will give you some motivation to make up your own menus and give you some new meal ideals.

I should warn you, as much as I try to serve healthy, balanced meals, I’m far from perfect. My hubby has clear likes and dislikes that I try to cater to when possible; and, even though I try to cook from scratch as much as possible, we do (gasp!) eat some processed foods. Oh, and my husband is pure-bred Italian, so expect to see a lot of Italian dishes. 🙂

Breakfasts:

Sunday: Poached eggs, hash browns, bacon (It’s Trinity Sunday!)
Monday: French toast, fruit
Tuesday: Cereal with milk and raisins
Wednesday: Nutmeg toast and yogurt
Thursday: Granola bars, fruit
Friday: Apple and cinnamon oatmeal
Saturday: Waffles

Lunches:

Sunday: We usually eat breakfast late, and dinner early, so we skip lunch
Monday: Leftovers
Tuesday: Grilled cheese sandwiches, sweet pepper sticks
Wednesday: Tuna salad on crackers, celery sticks
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, sugar snap peas
Saturday: None (See above Sunday’s  note)

Suppers:

Sunday: Baked chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, chocolate pudding pie
Monday: Chili dogs with sauerkraut, baked beans, green salad, ice cream sandwiches
Tuesday: Pork chops, rice, mixed veggies, apple sauce
Wednesday: Baked fish, broccoli, pasta salad
Thursday: Chicken & mushrooms, salad, rolls
Friday: Egg balls (sounds funky, but tastes so good), Italian bread
Saturday: Baked Ziti, salad, leftover Easter Candy (yes, we still have candy from Easter – quite a bit left!)

So there you have it. I’d love to hear your menu ideas. What will  you be serving next week? Leave your menu or suggestions in the comments! Thanks!
