Menu Plan: Week of January 7

When I asked you to fill out the survey last month, several of you mentioned that you would like to see more on menu planning. Well, I am no expert, and have fallen off the menu planning wagon as of late, so I am thrilled that you asked for it!

Each week, I will share my menu with you, linking to new recipes and old favorites. Hopefully, this will help me get out of the food rut I’ve been in, and help you guys find fresh ideas!

I have actually thought of trying to plan my menu a month in advance. Have any of you tried it? Do you like it better than a weekly plan?

Linking up to Org Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday!

  1. I have written up a menu for a month or so in advance before according to what I have available in my freezer and pantry. This way I use up items before they expire. When I go that far in advance with the planning I just check off the items from the list that I’ve chosen and there is no order to it. So I’m basically picking from a list of ideas that I know I have the ingredients for on hand.

  2. @Lea, That is a great idea, Lea! Thank you for sharing :)

  3. I”ve done weekly, monthly & yearly plans – it’s all good. I find it much easier to do big chunks of planning, because then I don’t have to have the discipline to sit down and do it every week – which comes around WAY too often for me! : )´s last blog post ..Greek for a Week! ( Weekly menu plan & freezer cooking )

  4. That sounds like a great plan, Anna! I don’t think I have the discipline, either. Thank you for sharing! :)
