Planning A-Head, So I don't Feel Like I'm Loosing My Mind

My first time linking up with Organizing Junkie for Menu Planning Monday. We have been in the same 29 menu idea rut for a little bit (like the past 7 years). I use to be really good about preplanning our menu and somehow I slip away from it. Life is so much easier when I can at least have a game plan for what we'll be having for dinner on days when things are so hectic I can't seem to remember what day it is. Here's to a new attempt of remaining organized :)

Sunday- First time trying Shepherd's Pie (it did not go over well with the boys)

Monday- Steak sandwiches with peppers & onion and cheese slices -Jordan's day to cook

Tuesday- Marinated chicken, stuffing, zucchini and yellow squash, and applesauce -Jacob's day to cook

Wednesday- Bean (refried and black beans) and Cheese quesadillas, Mexican rice, and corn (we use to add chicken in them, but one day I was rushing and forgot to toss it in. My kiddos enjoy this version just as much) - Joey's day to cook

Thursday- (scout night, so ha to be a quick and easy meal) Breakfast for dinner. Eggs, turkey bacon, toast, and fresh fruit.

Friday- Cornflake coated chicken, homemade potato fries, broccoli florets (great Gluten free meal)

Saturday- This week we'll be Grandma's, so your guess is as good as mine :)

*To help my boys learn to cook, each of them (ages 7, 9, and 13) either makes the complete meal by themselves (supervised of coarse) or with mom guiding them.
