menu monday mania: week 1

by @according2kelly on January 4, 2010

happy new year! welcome to 2010! i don’t know about you, but i’m still adjusting to the new year. i’ve got lots of new ideas, big plans, & plenty of resolutions. the first goal on my list involves dinner time. as you may or may not know, i don’t mind cooking at all, in fact i kinda enjoy it. but, what i don’t like is the actual decision process – coming up with what to actually make for dinner. but that’s gonna change. 2010 is the time for a new me & a new meal plan. each & every monday i am going to be posting my weekly meal plan. i know, it isn’t exactly a new or novel concept, but i’m hoping that being held accountable is going to be the motivating factor i need, to get my butt in gear, to actually do the work, & sit down to make a weekly menu plan.

i’m betting you already plan your menus. i highly doubt this a new concept to anyone, but me. if you do, i’m going to encourage you to post your menus here too. or, even better, post your menus on your own blog, & just leave a link here. i know i could use all the meal ideas i could get, & would love to know what some of your family favorites are. so, without further ado, here is week one of menu monday mania

* monday: crock pot chicken tacos
* tuesday: chicken tortellini soup
* wednesday: home made pizza (i need YOUR help with this one. anyone have any recipe suggestions for dough or sauce?)
* thursday: meatball “hero” sandwiches
* friday: creamy chicken roll-ups

so there you have it. a collection of 5 yummy meals my family is going to eat this week. & to be perfectly honest it wasn’t all that hard. although, i’m a little worried i may have used up all my tasty recipes the first week out. hopefully, one or maybe even two of you, will play along with my little game. i’m definitely in need of some new ideas for next week!


just found your blog this week...sooo adorable! my 17 year old daughter loved your sense of style! i like the menu monday mania! gives me great ideas...i post mine on the fridge each week... monday-grilled pork chops with pineapple/cilantro salsa and sugar buns tuesday-grilled honey glaze chicken with caprese salad wednesday-pasta with marinara and italian sausage thursday-grilled brats, corn on the cob, watermelon friday-chicken pasta salad bring back your weekly menus! :)
