With Vince not here, I haven’t been making menu plans per se but I always know ahead of time what I’m going to eat. This week I made two kinds of soup on Monday (or Sunday . . can’t remember). I used a jar of home canned chicken and made the Green Enchilada Soup and Chicken Noodle Soup (with storebought frozen noodles). It was all so easy and I’ve and soup all week and I don’t mind one bit.
Nicole and I are going to start working together to hopefully get her in the habit of making menu plans, or using mine, and doing some planning so she isn’t having to go to the store so much and dinner is ready when Chad gets home.
So . . tomorrow I’ll hopefully start sharing menu plans again and I’m going to do it on Friday for the next week. Nicole and I decided it was easier for me to post them to the blog, then share the link with her. I hope these will be a bit more than my traditional menu plans, with some instructions of what to do each day so she can stay on track. Mostly these will be recipes that are fairly kid friendly and picky eater husband good and easy for a working mom to get done.
These will be enough for at last two adult and one child serving.
I will do five menus per week. I will plan and note things that makes an extra dish for the freezer so that every fourth week, there’s a dish in the freezer that can be pulled out, heated and . . no cooking for a week.
Hope this helps someone and I’m pretty sure it will help Nicole.
