What's for Dinner?

I used to ask myself and my husband this a lot during the week.  I hated not having a plan.  It made for a crazy week and also a lot of money was wasted on takeout.  I still have times like this due to being sick or a busy weekend, but I am more relaxed if I have a plan.  Before I do my grocery shopping, I sit down to make my list out.  I think about everything we have going on for the week.  If we have a busy day and I know we will be away from the house, I try to think of a quick meal or something I can put in the crock pot that morning.  I wouldn't plan to fry chicken on a day like that because I know I won't have the time or the energy to do it when I get home.  I would opt for takeout if that was my plan.  Even with a good plan, things do change during the week and I have to be flexible when they do.  Learn to be flexible and use your plan as a guide.  So here's our dinner menu for the week.

Sunday: Chicken spaghetti and caesar salad 
Monday: Vegetable soup and cornbread
Tuesday: Fried chicken, potato salad, and baked beans
Wednesday: Baked potato soup and garlic cheese biscuits
Thursday: Cube steak with gravy, rice, lima beans, and slaw
Friday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and corn
Saturday: Breakfast for dinner

I pray this inspires you to just share it.  You never know who you may be helping along the way.  I know I have been helped countless times and learned so many things from others that I have never met.  I am so glad they decided to JUST SHARE IT with others!!
