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!!
