Working on a system

I want to get to where I am planning my meals a month in advance.  I feel that I might be biting off more than I can chew because right now I am doing good to get two weeks planned and sticking to the plan.

Should I jump right on in and see if I sink or swim, or should I stick with two weeks at a time until it is routine?

What are you thoughts?

That Terrible Moment......

when you get to school and realize you forgot to start dinner in the slow cooker!  I will cook the chicken differently I guess. LOL

Here is what I have so far:

Tonight:  Son made Tomato chicken over rice and our neighbors brought over some chicken noodle soup since the yucks have been visiting. :-)

Jan. 13:     French onion soup (crockpot)
Jan. 14:     Homemade pizza
Jan. 15:     Leftovers night
Jan. 16:     Potato soup
Jan. 17:     Venison Stew
Jan. 18:     Tacos
Jan. 19:     Jam Chicken over rice
Jan. 20:     Venison Roast
Jan. 21:     Chili
Jan. 22:     Leftover night
Jan. 23:     Salad night

Not quite two weeks, but 10 days are not bad.  I feel like I can not think of anything new or interesting.

Jan. 13-- Change is being made.  I have way too much in the fridge NOT to do a leftovers night.  So, the menu will just move one day and move the leftovers day to where it is needed.  So... 11 days of meals instead of 10. Yay me!

Menus and More menus

The crud has hit the house the last couple of days.  Now that I am feeling somewhat human again, I hope to plan my menu for the next couple of weeks.  I was not too bad at following the last menu, so that is encouraging.

Back later.....

The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.

I am almost stayed with my original menu, just two changes!  Back on schedule today. :-)

I way overspent last month at the grocery store.  Not sure how or on what, but I did.  So.... this month will be bare bones, no extras, and back to watching sales and shopping wisely in February!
