Menu Planning

I'm trying what my friend Cathy suggested - menu planning for the week. I used to do it and I know it goes much easier just to have the plan and the ingredients on hand. Here is my menu for the rest of the week:

Chicken Parmesan
Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Veggies

Turkey Burgers
Fresh Fruit

Crock Pot Mac 'n Chicken with Mushrooms
Salad

Thai Basil Chicken
Brown rice
Cucumber Salad

Do you do a menu plan or just wing it for dinners? What's on your list this week?

Nothing fancy...

Stacy - I'm working on getting the Chicken Parm recipe up there, and the Crock Pot one will be new to me. I'll let you know how it is. Here is the link for my Thai Basil dish.. http://deestroyer.blogspot.com/2009/03/thai-turkey-basil.html

Cathy - is your stroganoff a slow cooker recipe? I really need to use my crock pot more! And I never seem to have enough leftovers to make two dinners...you must make big meals??

Cathy said...

Dee - yes my stroganoff is a slow cooker recipe. I'll send it to you via email.

Cherie, Nice menu! I love all the veg you are using. I made Gazpacho last night for the first time and loved it! Happy cooking!
