Menu Planning Monday

Menu Planning Monday

It has been a really long time since I joined MPM! But, it's time to start getting a handle on time and money. And one of those ways is to start planning ahead by creating a weekly menu.

By creating a menu for the week, it keeps you on track for your grocery budget and your time management. And I need both of these!

Many of this weeks dinner meals are going to be by Kraft! I love getting Kraft email and these recipes came from the latest one I received.

Looks like this week I can cook out of my pantry for the most part. My needed shopping ingredients are very minimal so that means I can use some of my grocery budget to stock up on some sale and coupon items.

Don’t forget my two giveaways going on right now!

  1. Well it sure looks like someone is getting organized...great recipes here. I never heard from that company on the giveaway...something I should do?

  2. Love your menu! I was saying today I need to get back to making a weekly menu. You have inspired me!!

  3. Your menu sounds so good! It helps with our budget when I do the menus.

  4. Diann, with all the rotten stuff that's been happening here, I can't seem to get it together to plan menus ahead. I REALLY need to do it!

  5. To be so organized! Happy eating! Sounds delish!

  6. Everything looks so good. I have a question for you.. do you have trouble keeping your wraps together? My wraps would never look like the above picture. Mine would fall open in the stuffing would tumble out onto the plate.

  7. great menu for the week the
    Layered Strawberry Cheesecake Bowl looks so good!
