Menu Plan Monday


Some of you may have followed me from Whitehead's Monthly Menu. I've decided to quit posting there and share my menus here.

If you are new to my menu plan here is my system.  I make my menu by the month.   I grocery shop twice monthly, and then make mini stops for things like milk and produce as needed.  This is what works for us.  If something does not sound good the night I have it listed no worries I just swap it with something else.  I am usually pretty flexible when it comes to the kitchen.  I also have a houseful of picky eaters.  A husband who would be completely happy with the same handful of  foods and nothing more.  So, if you wonder why many things repeat that would be the answer.

Also, things about me.  I  love love my crock-pot.  That would be my favorite way to cook because you can forget about it.  I am also a big fan of freezer meals and I play with once a month cooking occasionally.

If you have a weekly, biweekly or monthly menu link up .  I love to find new ideas!
Or if you just have something to share leave me a comment!

If you Visit you can find my previous 2011 monthly menus.
