I haven’t joined in Menu Plan Monday the last couple of weeks because, due to various and sundry things, our menu just kept rolling over and looked pretty much just like the last one I posted. Now we’re in a new month, and Matt and I have changed up our menu planning/shopping strategy a bit; this month we created a month long menu plan.
Our original goal was to do the majority of our shopping for the month this weekend, but since we didn’t start working on everything until Friday afternoon we weren’t able to quite get that accomplished. What we ended up doing was our usual weekly grocery trip plus a trip to Whole Foods to get our meat for the month. Hopefully, I can get everything organized and do our staple shopping for the month this coming weekend and then pick up milk and produce (and any items on special that we would like to have) once or twice a week for the remainder of the month.
This is our first experiment in monthly menu planning, so we’ll see how it goes.
All of that to say, this is what we’ll be eating this week…
Friday – toasted ravioli
Saturday – breakfast for dinner: bacon, eggs, and homemade biscuits
Sunday – lunch: pizza / dinner: Easter meal with friends
Monday – shrimp & grits
Tuesday – enchilada casserole, chips & guacamole
Wednesday – leftovers
Thursday – hamburgers on the grill, corn on the cob
