Weekly Menu With Recipes – February 21, 2010

What would happen if you took 15 minutes and planned out your menu for the whole week?  Would it save you money? Yes Would it save you time? Yes Would it happen exactly as planned?  Sometimes Is it still worth it?  Yes.

If you want you can just cheat and use my menu and that will take you less than 15 minutes but but don’t forget to make the grocery list so you have the ingredients on hand.  The good thing about making your own menu is that you can see what you already have on hand and let that be your guide.  It will save you time and money no matter what, that’s a promise.

This week my youngest and I came up with a menu that was all C food.  No not seafood, C food.  That means each meal starts with the letter C.  Yeah I’m really that silly.  I thought you were already warned about that.

If you don’t like something I named just come up with another food or recipe that starts with C and keep going.

This is going to a fun week of blog posts too so make sure you check back.  If you don’t subscribe via email or RSS now is the time to do that.  Top of this blog right above my photo with one of the first two icons.  The flame is the email subscription and you can unsubscribe anytime but I hope you stick around.  Let me give you a peak with my post menu:

    That recipe for cod piccata is so amazing! Maybe I need to add that to my meal plan.

    You know I used to plan out my menus when the kids were little, got out of the habit when they left home but now with my busy schedule I need to get back to that. Looks like you are going to have a week of good eating!

      Carol it does really help. You're just as important as raising those kids were so help yourself out and go back to that Menu.
