Monday Meal Planning 4-7-2008

I am going to try to do this yet again....why....because I really don't feel organized and I hate it when it is 5pm and I have no idea what is for dinner. I really want to not feel stressed out in this area of my life and I know that when I plan dinner the week before I do feel less stressed. The only problem is...I get going really good and then I get tired and I slack and then the plan falls apart. So I am going to try and just keep things simple. Maybe I have been trying to hard, to be the "domestic diva" in my dreams. Baby steps!!! Need to remember baby steps, and enjoy the journey!

So here is the dinners planned for this week:

Monday: Mac & Cheese with hot dogs (Bryan works late)

Tuesday: Meatball soup

Wednesday: Soft Tacos

Thursday: Special Egg Salad Sandwiches (recipe below) (Bryan work late)

Friday: Pizza (going to Costco since it is payday and need to buy pizza and soy milk as well as a few other bulk items) (Bryan works late)

Saturday: Left overs

Sunday: Lunch * Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with soup * Dinner * out because I need to go pick up the items for the Just Between Friends Sale that didn't sell. 7:30pm pick up time. So we will hit a fast food place and get something to eat before Bug and I go pick up the items.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I just sat down last weekend and got 17 recipes to try. I will post them as I make them. It's hard to come up w/something every night though.
It's hard to keep up a routine too.
Good luck w/it!
