So here is my revised Meal Planning Format (Original by Liz Edmunds, The Food Nanny). I'm planning my menu every two weeks.

Monday's: Sandwich's-there are soooooo many good sandwich's out there! Tonight we're having Artichoke and Basil Hero's.

Tuesday's: Italian or Asian-I do any every other week kind of thing. This weeks Chicken Satay Skewers w/peanut sauce and Sesame noodles.

Wednesday's: Fish or Meatless-which includes breakfast food. French Toast for dinner? Yes Please!

Thursday's: Mexican- If you've never made corn tortillas from scratch I recommend you try it. They're easier than I thought and SUPER GOOD!! Liz recommends using a gallon freezer bag with the sides cut off to roll the dough between which is how I do it.

Friday's: Pizza night! I make 2 pizza's each time. The 1st one's for dinner, since it's just Mike and I, the 2nd bakes while we eat and takes care of lunch for Saturday.

Saturday's: Grill night. We don't have a grill right now so I'm looking to get a Grill pan for the stove. Otherwise, this can be a date night or fend-for-yourselves night:)

Sunday's: Tradition/Comfort food. Make your Mom's or Mother-in-laws specialties.....or at least try. By now Mike and I have some of our own faves, Red Thai curry, Aussie potato bake etc.


  1. What will actually happen is you will end up going to Chick-fil-A every night, right?

  2. Sounds good to me-I can only dream of being that organized...

  3. Kelly, you are amazing. I always wished I would make a menu. It saves money, but more importantly it takes the stress off the day. You look at your menu and even if it doesn't sound good right then, you have the materials to make dinner. Later when you sit down to dinner it always tastes good. Good for you!

  4. give us the recipes? i want to hear how to make red thai curry. it sounds BOMB.
