One of my New Year's resolutions is to make a weekly menu plan every week. I find that when I do this I save time and money, avoiding last-minute scrambling to get a meal on the table. Laura at "I'm an Organizing Junkie" hosts Menu Plan Monday. I'm going to give it a whirl and see if it helps me stay organized!

Monday - Maple BBQ salmon, Roasted potatoes, steamed broccoli

Tuesday - Jambalaya, cornbread

Wednesday - Pineapple Curry with Shrimp, jasmine rice, Pad Thai

Thursday - Seafood chowder, Buttery Rolls

Friday - Prime rib with horseradish cream, mashed potatoes, baby carrots

Saturday - Sweet and sour meatballs, rice, peas

Sunday - Chicken stew with dumplings

I've been menu planning for a year and it definitely cuts down on the dinnertime chaos. Good luck!

I've been trying to keep up a menu for 3 years... some weeks are better than others..
but I really notice in my grocery bill when I plan out supper for a week. Much smaller bill!
I've look at those sites before, but should really try to get back on track again. I had a menu last week and it was great but this week, no menu and we're rushing...
OK,my rambling convinced me.. I'm off to make a menu for the rest of the week!
