    I am trying to plan out a menu, and stick with it. I have 1 days I am unsure of, and wondering what everyone else is doing this week.

    So far I have:

    Mon: Chicken Monterrey and Mac n cheese
    Tues: Barbacoa
    Wed: Cream Cheese Chicken (from crock pot thread)
    Thur: Tilapia Tacos (dh will be cooking since we have a cheer camp and then tumbling classes less than 2hrs later)
    Fri: Steaks, baked potato and salad
    Sat: ??

    I want to try the Asian Chicken but thinking I might be overdoing the Chicken this week if I do it again!

    I am thinking I will make swedish meatballs for lunch on Saturday.. not sure for dinner though.

    What about leftovers from the week? There's bound to be leftovers from a couple meals, right? So unless somebody is eating them for lunch or something, it's a really budget solution. Your menu sounds good so far, though!

    We take leftovers for lunch, or the kids eat them for lunch. We wouldn't have enough for a meal.

    If we are home on the weekends, I like to do like a late lunch/early dinner, and then if needed a quick, easy snack in the evening. We would eat around 3ish. It really works great for us.

    Breakfast for dinner? (Eggs, pancakes, sausage etc.) It's a lifesaver for us on the days where we don't have too much time or just don't feel like too much cooking.

    And this post made me realize I need a menu.. this week is just nuts with the amount of stuff we have to do in the evenings. If I don't plan we'll get take out and I don't want to waste the money:headache:
