Menu Planning

I have done this once before, but it was short lived. Buying land, selling our house, packing, moving, building a new house....who has time to cook let alone plan ahead for meals?!

Things have settled down, as much as they are going to anyways, so I have decided to start meal planning again.

Here is our meal plan for the next 8 days:

Homemade tilapia fish sticks, carrots, rice & a salad
Tex Mex Lasagna with tomato avocado salad
Cilantro Lime Chicken - gonna wing the sides with this one :)
Shrimp & Grits with salad
Tuna Melt with avocado on french bread
Mandarin Chicken from Trader Joe's, broccoli, rice & egg rolls
Spaghetti with garlic bread & salad
And we'll probably go out to dinner one night :)

These are all new recipes except for the Mandarin chicken of course. If they turn out well I will post them soon.

Do you meal plan? One week out or a month? Right now I am working on just a week. Hopefully this will cut down on multiple trips to the grocery store during the week!
