And with that, I'm back to menu planning. If you've never tried menu planning, I highly recommend it. Planning nightly menus ahead of time is SO beneficial! It cuts down on the number of times you have to go to the store AND it saves you money! I really didn't think it could, but it really does! Two things I never do now when I go to the grocery: 1) I never go hungry, and 2) I always have a list. I may change up the menu nightly, but we pretty much stick to the plan and it makes coming home in the evening so much nicer when I don't have to scrounge around for something in the pantry or freezer.
To help ease us back into routine, I've planned family favorites this week! Most of these recipes can be found on my Horton Family Favorites Pinterest Board. So here we go:
Sunday - Beef Tips & Rice, green bean bundles
Monday - General TSO Chicken
Tuesday - Shrimp Jambalaya, corn
Wednesday - YOYO
Thursday - Spaghetti & Meatballs with garlic bread
Friday - Pork chops with loaded mashed potatoes
Saturday - Date Night
