My 2nd Menu Plan Monday!

I just loved having a menu plan last week! I think it really helped me out a lot! I was not having to figure out in my head what we could have that day or the next! We even had more leftovers over the week, so we ate those up over the weekend. So, I did not follow my plan to a T, but it just worked out so well! I look forward to it this week and the weeks ahead! I did not get to visit very many of the other great blogs that linked up at Organizing Junkie last week, so I hope I have more time to do it this week! If you are linked up to Organizing Junkie, leave me a comment and I will try to visit your menu plan this week!

Here is the plan I hope to work with this week!

Happy Monday! God bless your week!


  1. Planning really helps save the food budget too :)

  6. I love that you plan everything out in advance, and reuse some of your suppers for dinners (that threw me for a loop, though; I kept wondering, "Where's lunch??"). We try to do that sometimes too, and it's really helpful, both with budgeting our time and our finances.

    I'm intersted in your spaghetti squash recipe...

  7. Thanks for sharing the recipe-- you are RIGHT, that is super-easy! I am going to have to try it. I can ALWAYS use help getting my daughter to eat different foods!
