Menu Tips

I am still trying to get a little more organized, so I am continuing to post the monthly menu as a guide. Although I didn’t do too well at keeping up with it last month, there was improvement. I am planning 5 weeknight meals, knowing that we will probably only make about 3 each week. Again, this is only a guide.

Tips for Using This Monthly Menu:

  • Print the menu and keep it visible.
  • Get as many of the ingredients as you can at the beginning of the month.
  • Each week get the fresh ingredients needed.
  • Keep certain staples on hand (baking items, seasonings, etc.)
  • Buy in bulk – Ex. See how many chicken meals you are going to plan, buy at least that much chicken and freeze them in smaller portions.
  • Remember that this is just a guide. Nothing is set in stone. Use what you want to use and skip the rest.
  • Use this either as a monthly menu, a weekly menu, or choose what you want for your own plan.

What this will look like:

  • I have the menu on a spreadsheet with the dates, menu item, and either a brief description or a link to the online recipe.
  • I am not including weekends, because we usually eat out, and there should also be enough leftovers for quick meals and snacks.
  • For menu items like Grilled Chicken, I did not include a recipe. If you have questions about anything on the menu that doesn’t have an explanation, please contact me.
  • I did not include sides on the menu. I try to keep plenty vegetables, couscous, rice, etc. Just fill in with your favorites.
