Menu Monday


 Good Morning and Welcome to a new week and a beautiful Fall Day


I hope it is as nice where you are as it is here.  

Fall is a Glorious time in Texas! 

Today I am sharing my Menu plans for the week and a few thoughts about Menus for our family.  

Lately I have been a bit discouraged on this topic because for the last 3 or so weeks the Cowboy has had no appetite for food.   He has been eating but very little.  The last few days though he has been a bit closer to normal.  Although at this point it is hard to say or know what normal is.   Anyway with that said Menu Planning has been a challenge.  

I seem to have to try new things or ways to accomplish this task and it seems to change weekly.  My life is a Roller Coaster at least our meals are.

After that Fun ride let's get to it and plan a Menu!

I begin my Menu Planning on Saturday when I do my Happy Homemaker post.  By Monday morning sometimes I've changed my mind.  LOL . . . 


Monday  Kielbasa, L/O Pinto's Fried Potato's and something a bit O Green maybe a Spinach w/ Ranch appetizer

Taco Tuesday Always easy and a Family Favorite.  Why do I stress about this?

Wednesday Chicken Pot Pie and hopefully a Salad

Thursday Spaghetti with Meat Sauce from L/O Taco meat, Salad and Garlic Bread

Friday Beef? Maybe  I can find Steak on sale this week.  If not I have Mussels and Soft Shell Crab in the freezer.

 Sometimes my plans to do change.  Sometimes by Monday I've tweeked it.  


Today I think we are keeping with the plan.

Sometimes my plans change because I happen on a good Meat buy at the store or find some really good fresh veggies and so I change things to accommodate good buys. 


 But lately I have had to be flexible and change my plans based on what I can talk the Cowboy into eating.  


I guess you might wonder why I even mess with a Menu.

 Normally making a plan keeps me on track and helps me to remember to use leftovers.  And keeps me from spending as much at the grocery story.  


And so I plan.  I need a plan.  It keeps me centered. 

I'll let you know how it goes!

Do you plan a Menu?  

I would love to visit you. 

Do you have suggestions for me on managing The Cowboys meals? 

I'd love your input.
