Monthly Meal Plan – March 2011

5DollarMenuFinal1Button

Seriously y’all…these months keep flying by.  The days seem to be going faster (which is great news, because I need spring. desperately.) The kids won’t stop growing. And with all these things happening so fast, I don’t have time to not have a plan.

Plans keep me sane. Keep me focused and keep me one step ahead of myself.

(Which is the only way I can keep up with these days and months flying around like they are.)

This month I’m going to do something a little different…I’m going to write out a list of new meals that I’d like to try, along with a list of family favorites that I know we have the ingredients for in the pantry. (Pantry staples recipes found here.)  I will get the new recipes that we try posted as quickly as possible!

  • Apple Chicken Meatballs

    Oh my! We made tabbouleh with quinoa just a few weeks ago and it was delicious! I got the recipe from allrecipes.com and tweaked it a bit to our tastes, but overall it was a great started. YUM! And oh so healthy!

    Being married for over 43 years and having 7 children and 16 grandchildren (2 more due this year)… I’ve found that menu and meal planning had become a huge part of my cooking adventure.. In my blog I only have a portion from my book (Potty Training To Puberty–THE PITS!! (with hugs along the way”) to share some of what I have learned. As I speak to MOPS and Moms groups in the Cincinnati area, I always have the opportunity to help them learn this important part of their journey. I continue to plan my menus, use coupons, and try new recipes.
    Stop by my blog see many of my step by step recipes with pictures. I have Ukrainian cuisine which is my ethnic background as well as menus and recipes for all the holidays.
    These can be found in my book as well.
    What a great job we have, eh? Keep up the good work.
