Menu Plan Your Butt Off | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I have to be honest, I’m not very good at menu planning every week.  The two times I have done since we started this segment at Shrinking Jeans have been awesome weeks of eating at our house.  All the other weeks that I have not done it have still been yummy weeks of eating but definitely more stressful around mealtimes because I wait to the last minute to figure out what we are having.  I end up going to the grocery store more often because I don’t have what I need for that meal because I didn’t plan it out, I end up spending more money because it’s impossible for me to go into the store to just get what’s on my list, I end up wasting too much time.

The moral of the story:  I need to menu plan my butt off each and every week!

The Menu

  • Sunday- dinner at Souper Salad, my kid’s favorite place to eat out!
  • Monday- Pork Tacos, Spanish Rice, Beans, Salad
  • Tuesday- Crock Pot BBQ Chicken, Buttered Noodles, Green Beans
  • Wednesday- leftovers
  • Thursday- Baked Chicken Parmesan, Green Salad, Garlic Bread
  • Friday- leftovers
  • Saturday- Mommy will be gone for the night so Daddy will have to fend for himself!

Other Lovely, Delicious Items to Make:

  • Coconut Banana Bread- the absolute bomb!  This was so good the first time I made it- I wish I had made TWO loaves.  The kids loved it, too and they aren’t even big fans of coconut.  I did substitute 1/4 cup applesauce + 1/4 cup canola oil for the 1/2 cup oil; otherwise, I followed the recipe as is.
  • Cookies and Creak Shake– another winner from weight Watchers.
  • Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes
  • French Onion Soup– I’m pretty sure my kids won’t eat this so it will have to be something I make for myself, maybe at lunchtime.

Whew, I did it- I menu planned my butt off and lived to tell about it- woot woot!  I hope ya’ll have a fabulous week.  Make sure to share to the link to your weekly menu plan in the comments section below.
