9 Day Menu Plan

I’m going to do things a little differently this week. For one thing, I’m going to buy meals for 2 weeks instead of 1. We are going to be out of town starting Friday afternoon through Wednesday night though so I won’t be including any meals for those time periods except for some snacks for the road and dinner in the car so we don’t have to stop for fast food on Friday night. The other thing I’m going to do differently is have the format more clearly reflect the way I actually meal plan. I generally just plan 7 dinners/breakfasts/lunches and decide each day which we will have. However, if we have a specific reason for having a specified dinner on a certain day, I’ll notate that (just for myself, not that my readers need to know necessarily. ;)) For breakfast and lunches, I’m just going to list stuff I have, or will be buying to have, on hand to make stuff since that is normally how we roll around here.

One last thing, because I feel guilty everytime I see my huge collection of cookbooks, I’ve started trying (again) to use my cookbooks more. I actually am going through each one slowly and marking down recipes I think we would enjoy and am going to start making some of those. That may mean I don’t have as many links to recipes as I did before but I will always at least include a link to the cookbook in my post and, if I can find a link, of course I’ll include it!

As always, I use the Publix weekly ad to make my menu to help save money!

This week I’m using The Mafia Cookbook for some of my recipes. I will notate those recipes with an asterisk.
