Meal Planning

I've been working on building up my repertoire of easy meals. My goal is to have several weeks worth of menus planned out. This makes my grocery shopping much easier. It also helps to know in advance what we are having for supper every evening. It makes the "crazy hour" of five o'clock more manageable!

Here is my menu for the last week. Most meals will stretch for two days in our family, or will make enough if we have unexpected guests for supper.

1. Roasted chicken
Mashed potatoes
French bean casserole

2. Chicken and rice soup
Homemade bread

3. Beef stew
Cucumber and tomato salad

4. Chicken and Broccoli Divan
Brown rice
Mixed green salad
