Well after "falling off the wagon" for Meal planning and struggling to get back on the "Straight and Narrow" path........ I think I did a half way decent job this past week. In all honesty the week after the mission trip and then the week of Fall Festival weren't the best weeks for meal planning BUT this past week we did much better.
I can tell you it is much cheaper when you meal plan--- I don't go to the grocery store with a wide open list- it is very specific. Shopping my pantry and freezer first has also helped (from all the times I just bought random things). I also appreciate reading all the meal plans at my blog friend Laura's blog .
I need help with two things this week- I need to know what are some ideas to do with a pork loin. I have always been scared to do this so I am trying it - anyone have some ideas for me, PLEASE! Also for those of you who hyperlink your dinner dishes (and when you click on them they have the recipe), will someone please teach me how to do this, pretty please! My good friend in real life and in the blogger world Laura taught me how to hyperlink a blog or post....I appreciate the help, I am techno challenged!
Here is the meal plan:
Monday- Dinner at Chili's to discuss an exciting ministry opportunity
Tuesday - Lasagna, Texas Toast and Salad
Wednesday - Philly Cheese Steak and Chips
Thursday- Cheesy Chicken Bake, Baked Potatoes, Corn Casserole and Fruit
Friday- Pork Loin (HELP, PLEASE)!
Saturday - Hamburgers, Baked Beans, Nacho Cheese Dip and Chips
Sunday - Pizza at Now Class
Hot dogs at AWANA
