{menu planning 09.05-09.11}

Another care free week... I have to admit. I am proud. I really am. I am proud of myself. I LOVED coming home from work every single day last week and knowing that all I had to do was go look at my menu on the fridge and pull out the ingredients. My life. turned simple. None of that stress. Do I have this or that. Or WHAT ON EARTH DO I COOK??? So I hope if you are one of the people that claim you 'don't have time' to make up a plan. Than you really are nuts :) Just kidding!!!! Use my menu plan than :)
Once again. Breakfast consists of cereal. Lunch is packed or fast food for James and me.. I don't eat. Ha! (not.)

MONDAY- Tacos.
TUESDAY- Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese. apple sauce.
photo source same as recipe

WEDNESDAY- Grilled Ham Steaks. Roasted Potatoes. Fresh fruit of some kind!!!
THURSDAY- Chinese Casserole. Green beans(sauteed in butter sprinkled with a wee bit of brown sugar.)mmm.
FRIDAY- I know we will have leftovers from Thursday. So we will eat that:)
SATURDAY- Pizza Night. (unless we go back to and eat some of that crazy awesome catfish and peach cobbler we had last Saturday night !!!)
SUNDAY- Lunch/Dinner. Roast Beef.  Pioneer Woman's Way with gravy and all the fixins !!!
(We didn't eat the beef today. I was home alone. so I guess it'll keep till next Sunday!)

Have a great week, you all and don't forget to pop back in!! I want to do a fun lil give away this week sometime!!!

ps. the grilled cheese and Pioneer Woman both have links to the original recipe. Ask me and I will gladly hand out any recipe on here that you want!


  1. Mmmm... this is making MY life so much easier too. Thank you!!! I want the recipe for the Chinese Casserole, sounds so yummy! :)

  2. I'm with Margi-I would like the Chinese casserole recipe. I made a menu plan today---first time in a loooong time. Mine consists of a lot of bbqin! I am squeezing out every last ounce of summer possible! :) I love that you're sharing this, Jenn!

  3. Love the menu plans too. Even if it's not possible for me to exactly copy you, just the fact that somebody else is doing it makes me want to make a plan of my own.

  4. Jenn I want to come and live at your house!!:) Those meals sound like a stomach is rumbling... :)

  5. I think maybe my hubs would LOVE those Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese- maybe??!! I'll have to try them... Thanks for the ideas. xoxo
