Menu Plan for January 30, 2011

Monday: Leftovers
Tuesday: Sandwiches/Soup
Wednesday:  Spaghetti with Meat Sauce (freezer)
Saturday: Ribs

Menu Plan for January 23, 2011

Back to menu planning after another extended absence. I am continually reminded that menu planning and prepping ahead of time is the key to our family's success on weeknights.  I've made a goal to use my crockpot at least twice a week for the next little while, especially while we are all busy at suppertime and the weather is so cold.  I bought Stephanie O'Dea's "Make it Fast, Cook it Slow" and am planning to use her recipes on a regular basis.  I've been a big fan of her blog for ages, and love having the book at my fingertips.

Sunday:  Leftovers
Monday: Leftovers
Tuesday: Omelets with Stir Fried Veggies, Salad
