Weekend Meal Planning

Thank Goodness that Halloween is over.  I'll be honest, I have NO idea how many calories worth of mini Snickers I have eaten since Wednesday.  Yeah, it wasn't pretty..  My diet pretty much went right out the window.

Typically, I go grocery shopping on Sunday but nobody felt like going anywhere.  Instead, we're going to head out to the store tomorrow evening since Charles is on Training Day tomorrow and will be going in during the day.  However, I did head over to the commissary to pick up some ingredients and made a really nice soup for tonight that everyone enjoyed.

I mentioned in one of my last reviews that we are using one of the suggestions to start working towards an annual menu.  I'm not sure if I will ever get to actually planning a full year, btu I did manage to plan the entire month using the idea of theme nights.   We sat down as a family and decided on the following themes - with us alternating between each meal type for a given day: 

Monday - Asian/Vegetarian
Tuesday - Fiesta/Ethnic
Wednesday - Alyssa's choice  
Thursday - Potato bar/Pasta
Friday - Comfort Foods
Saturday - Breakfast for Dinner/Grilling
Sunday - Soup&Sandwiches/Seafood 

This Weeks Menu:

Sunday -  Chicken, Vegetable and Orzo Soup with french bread (8SP)

Monday -  Beef and Broccoli with Rice

Tuesday -   Picadillo with Brown Rice (6SP)

Wednesday  -  Instant Pot cheeseburger macaroni

Thursday -   Steakhouse Potatoes

Friday - Chicken and Dumplings with Salad (3PS)

Saturday  -  Ham Steaks with Fried Eggs and Hashbrowns (4SP)
