Truth be told, I haven't written out a plan because I'm in a total rut. Nothing really sounds good or maybe I just don't want to put forth the effort. I sit down to write out a menu each week and.....um, NOTHING happens. Not sure if I think it will happen by magic or what, but I can't seem to come up with much so what do I do? NOTHING...that's what. It hasn't been good people. We have eaten...just not so well. Did I mention nobody in the family wants to help with the plan...I get blank stares when I ask....just sayin'.
I really can't take the 5pm "what on earth and I going to cook" drama anymore. It wears me out.
Given my "can't figure out what to fix" rut, I was very excited when I came across this site yesterday by
The site I found is called Moms Who Think. I haven't thoroughly checked out the website to see what their take is on parenting or anything, but I can tell you they have some pretty great looking recipes and 8 weekly menu plans. Most are very simple, but hearty recipes. They also have healthy eating menu plans, crock pot recipes and Mama Shirley's old-fashioned fare recipes.
I will definitely be using this site for lots of new menu inspiration. We all need new recipes sometimes, right? I know I do! I will let you know what I try and how it was as I make some of the items. Here is what we have planned for this week:
Tuesday: Chili coke roast with mashed potatoes and glazed carrots
Wednesday: Taco soup and chicken enchilada soup at church
Thursday: Chicken Spaghetti with salad and fruit
Friday: Mexican Pork bowls
Saturday: Terriyaki chicken with brown rice and sugar snap peas
Sunday: Lunch at a birthday party and dinner will be leftovers.
