Very happy with this week's menu.  I have started moving prepared items to Saturday, Sunday, and Monday so I don't have to cook on the weekends when we seem to be super busy.  Also we are trying some new breakfast and snack options, as well as some new dinners.

The best advice for a preplanned menu- always be willing to change it.  Due to some things that came up, we changed some of our items.  Hubby and I went out for two nights, and I didn't get a chance to make one of the breakfast items, but it is still great having a preplanned menu- you never have to worry about what's for dinner!

  1. That's smart cooking your meals ahead of time. I found it extremely helpful when I was working full time and our son was younger.
    Looks like lots of delicious meals this week. Have a wonderful day!
