Menu Plan Monday 9/27-10/3

Ahhh it felt so good last week having a menu to work with for meals!!  It amazes me how much a simple thing like a menu can relieve stress. Last week’s menus were yummy and I didn’t have to worry or stress over what to do for our daily nourishment.  The only thing I did have to do to the menu was switch a couple of dinner meals because I realized after making up the menu that I had put all the chicken meals right after another and did the same with the beef meals so we just did some alternating of the meals. My hubby and kids were grateful that they didn’t have to eat chicken three nights in a row!

This week’s shopping trip was getting a few deals and the essentials, which means the majority of my meals for this week’s menus are from the pantry and freezer.  I will need to make a “milk run” this week but other than that meals will be from my stockpile.

This week’s meals are some of our favorites or comfort foods. Awana has started for us and so that means that Sunday night dinner meals are a quick run through a drive thru. We have to leave so early(4:45pm) and then we get back so late(8:30pm) that is just easier to grab something on the way home.
