Menu Plan Monday: 2/22 - 2/28


This week's Menu Plan Monday is brought to you by Rice: The other white non-meat. We had rice and chicken for dinner last night and I remembered just how very much I love rice. Plus it's crazy cheap ($0.32 a cup uncooked) which makes it an excellent choice for cheap eats. So here's this week's menu:

Monday: Ham Fried Rice
Wednesday: Crock Pot Chicken (probably with a side of rice)
Thursday: Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo (pasta, not rice)
Friday: Hamburgers (would probably be killed if I put rice in them)
Sat & Sun: Leftovers 

Also, I've come up with a completely new sheet for menus and to-do things (seen above). I'm usually pretty good about keeping a to-do list in my head but here lately I just keep forgetting things. (I think it's all the kids I've had. Sucked the brains right out of me.) So I made this page in Excel to write down things that I need to remember. And even if I don't need it as a reminder, it does keep me accountable. 

It has a Monday - Sunday calendar, to-do sections each for chores (like laundry and bathrooms), errands (like groceries and library), house (like painting, or paperwork that needs to be done) and "Misc." (for things like phone calls to make, or knitting things to do). As well as a "Notes" section for anything that I might need to write down. And to top it all off, there is a place to put the current week's dates at the top so if you like to keep them you can refer back. I like keeping all my stuff in one place so menus and to-dos on one sheet was perfect for me.

I copied it to Google Docs, so if you would like a copy for yourself I would be more than happy to email you one in the form of Excel, Open office, or a PDF (those are the options I get from Google Docs). Just drop me an email or leave a comment with your email address if I don't have it already. Let me know which version you would like. You should be able to change it if you get the Excel or Open office to fit whatever sections of your life you need. Or if you like it as is then the PDF version will give you an easy option to just print it.

Have a great Monday! And remember to eat some rice this week. ;)

I love that could you bring me one on Wednesday? I like how big the boxes are.
I always enjoy your menu for the week.
