I do my grocery shopping on Friday morning so our menu runs from Friday to Thursday. Our menu is never set in stone either. Things come up every week, unexpected or not, and sometimes what I had planned doesn't pan out. Whether I forget to take something out of the freezer or whatever I was going to make just doesn't sound good that night, it never hurts to have a back-up plan. I try to plan something for late in the week that requires no frozen ingredients so that it can be swapped with something else if need be. We also tend to have breakfast for dinner when what was planned doesn't work out. This is how having 7 chickens in the backyard saves us a lot of arguments and money (since instead of running to Burger King or something we can just have yummy, delicious, nutritious eggs). We don't eat out very often and when we do it is a special treat we have saved up for. Very rarely is it spur of the moment.
Any recipes I have blogged will be linked to the post, and those I have gotten from other websites will be linked as well. If there's ever a recipe that isn't linked and you want to know more about it, leave me a comment and I will be happy to tell you or make it my next post! We try to have salad every night with dinner too. I usually buy baby spinach, petite carrots, sugar snap peas, grape tomatoes and cucumbers for our salads. Sometimes I will combine the spinach with green or red leaf lettuce.
Here is this week's menu:
Friday-The boys are having a sleepover next door so Jayme and I are going on a date with Pattie...don't know where yet
Saturday-BLTs and french fries
Sunday-Deer meat of some sort
Monday-Shredded Pork Wraps
Wednesday-Sloppy Joe Casserole (I use ground turkey instead of ground beef)
Thursday-Chicken Ranch Tacos
