Menu Plan Monday 6/8-6/14

It's been awhile since I've posted my menu- not that there hasn't been a plan, I just haven't been sticking to it! In the warmer weather and longer days I've just been outside all day and not taking as much time to plan, but I've realized I NEED my plan more than ever in the summer! I NEED it to give me a reason not to give in to going out to eat, over-spending on groceries and take out, and feeding my family food that is not entirely healthy for us! So, here's my re-commitment to eating healthy, at home, and affordably!
I am adding a new "feature" to my weekly plan - every couple weeks I am going to spend some time doing freezer cooking. My daycare meals and family meals have become so much simpler by using these methods so I am going to make a plan to keep doing it!

english muffin egg sandwiches (low fat!)
Pancakes, oranges
Peanut Butter Toast, banana

for lunches visit the daycare blog!


mexican rice

Pizza Tuesday
french bread pizza (with mushroom, onion, and beef topping)


turkey burgers
mac n cheese
baked beans

chef salad with grilled chicken
1/2 baked potato

baked ham (leftover from lunch)
green beans
baked sweet potatoes

tex-mex cheese quesadillas with black bean and white corn salsa
mandarin oranges

pepper and cheese stuffed chicken

Freezer Meals
I went to sam's club this weekend so this week I'll be whipping up some staples for the freezer:

Turkey Meatballs (4 lbs. worth!)
Taco Meat (4 meal portions for tacos and taco salads)
Spaghetti Sauce (2 batches)
Breakfast Burritos (with ham eggs and cheese)

That all sounds great, especially the salad with grilled chicken, yum! Definitely makes it seem like summer... You should check out springpad's weekly meal planner - it's a great way to organize, collect and share your menus and recipes (like this: - I think you'll really like it!
