Menu Plan Monday November 23

One of the most stressful parts of the day around here seems to come at 5:30 p.m. That's when the dreaded question is asked by either the hubby or me: What's for dinner? And it never fails that one of us will come up with a good idea only to find that we're missing one...or five ingredients. Argh.

So in an effort to alleviate this daily frustation, I've decided to try menu planning. I've done it in the past, but it was always just a list I jotted down on the fridge note pad. I'd rather try to put it in a more permanent place so that I can refer back to previous plans, so I decided this blog is a great place for it! And there couldn't be a more perfect week to start, seeing as how Thanksgiving is Thursday, so that day is already planned!

Thanks to I'm an Organizing Junkie for putting together Menu Plan Monday!

Okay, so here's my first Life on the 'Throw Menu Plan Monday entry:

MONDAY: Mexican night! Tacos and Quesadillas; salad on the side for me

TUESDAY: Chicken a la Vodka Farfalle, Steamed Broccoli, Garlic Toast

WEDNESDAY: Crock Pot Beef Stew, Bread, Green Beans

THURSDAY: Thanksgiving turkey for lunch and dinner!

FRIDAY: Pizza night

SATURDAY: Steak medallions, green beans, mashed potatoes
