Planning and Contemplating

We’ve been pretty good about weekly meal planning for the last 3 weeks.

This past Monday while grocery shopping, Jon made a comment about how it would be nice to have a 2 week schedule laid out and to be able to shop for the staples at one time and then to just be able to do a weekly produce run.

I’ve been thinking about this more and more.

it would be so nice to be able to do a big shop twice a month and to not have to take a portion of every Monday’s (our day off) grocery shopping.

This week’s menu looks/ed like this:

Monday: Homemade Turkey Soup and Salad

Tuesday: Taco’s (beans – for me, ground elk, cheese, lettuce, peppers, salsa)

Wednesday: Ham and Rice and peas

Thursday: Homemade Lasagna and Salad

Friday: Salmon/Tilapia and Quinoa with Brocooli and Cauliflower

Saturday: Scrounge Night

Sunday: Roast Chicken, Potatoes, Carrots, Peas, Salad

I think that I’m gonna plan out next week’s meals and then look at the 4 weeks of meals and plan out a months worth of meals ahead of time. Then I’ll plan out what I need to pick up for 2 weeks worth of staples and print that out to shop with. I’m still working out the best way to be able to add in those things that we run out of, but I’m hoping that this will help to cut down on the number of trips that we need to take in a month.

We’ll see if this works out in as well as I’m hoping it does.

One thought on “Planning and Contemplating”

  1. Wow! This is like the nirvana of shopping… I’d just love to go 2 days without stopping to get something cause my hubbie (who is now at home and in charge of meals) can decide what he wants to make until an hour ahead of time.

    Good luck! I look forward to hearing how it goes.
