Meal Planning!

Do you write out your weekly menus? Well I do. I like to be organized plus it saves time and money. I use to do it by days but now I just come up with a list of meals and the ingredients needs. I am flexible with the days. I just started planning two weeks in advance. Obviously, there is some flexibility and the menu gets put off for a day. Last night we ended up at eatnpark after a quick run to the grove city outlets at 7pm(dont ask, long story) but I had made the chicken anyway so we will have it tonight. Here is what I have planned for the next two weeks-
Chicken fingers, texas toast, fries and gravy
Korean BBQ beef with rice-it is pre-marinated from trader joes, quick and yummy.
Beef Stew
Chicken and bacon calzones
chicken spaghetti
BBQ chicken with corn
tomato cheesy chicken with pasta-Chicken, diced tomatoes, mozzerella cheese, and some basil. So easy and so darn yummy.
Baked Chicken Breasts with Parmesan Garlic Crust
Chinese BBQ pork with noodles
French onion soup
ham steak with skillet potatoes

We will obviously eat out a few times or have leftovers but it is nice to have all the ingredients on hand. I even have frozen bread dough for the french onion soup.
I made a zebra cake the other day and it was good, but needs tweaking. I also plan on making chocolate chip biscotti and apple cupcakes. We have fresh apples from a local orchard and I dont want to go to waste.

I really think I need to pick up dinner at your house every night. ;)
