Menu Planning

We are trying to work on eating at home instead of eating out so much.  As you know, I love a restaurant!  But to be able to watch what we’re eating and be better about the budget, we’ve decided to focus on cooking at home. 

I find if we have a menu and are prepared were much more likely to stick with the plan.  So Sundays have become our menu planning & grocery shopping day.  It’s nice because we can go together and make it more of an outing than a chore.

See why I “pinned” this cool menu board over on Pinterest…  I think it would be perfect on the side of the bookshelf in the mudroom!



This week’s menu:


PW’s Vegetable Lasagna


Ground Turkey Tacos ~ Black Beans


Breakfast for Dinner – Eggs, bacon & grits


PW’s Orange Whiskey Chicken Thighs ~ Roasted Broccoli


Pork Chops ~ Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Yes I know there’s a theme of Pioneer Woman’s recipes.  What can I say.  I love that woman  And speaking of the illustrious P-Dub…  did you know her cooking show is starting this Saturday on the Food Network??  Well it is!  I highly suggest you tune in – cause the girl can cook!

Here’s a little trailer for ya…

Looks like some tasty treats to me!  I can’t wait to watch and get to know PW’s even more! 

Well we will need some more recipes so I don’t copy Ree every week!  What are y’all having at your house these days?  Any great recipes we need to try?  I would love to hear your input!

Joe’s at work right now on the Lasagna and it’s smelling pretty dang tasty in here!  I’ll let you know how it turns out – I’m sure it will be DEE-licious, my man can COOK too!
