Menu Monday

My name is Shannon and I love to meal plan.  There I said it.  It's true.  I love to sit down every week, go through Pinterest and Kraft to see what dinners we'll have for the week, it's like therapy to me.  Sick, I know.  I've gone as far as meal planning and grocery shopping for 2 weeks worth before and THAT was awesome.  I really wish I did that more often because that food lasted us almost a whole month, besides the occasional milk & fresh fruits run here and there.
Because I love you, and SO many people have asked, I have created a dinner {note I said dinner, you are on your own for breakfast and lunch at this time} menu plan for the week.  This will include your grocery shopping list and recipes for 3 nights of dinners.  Why just 3 nights?  Because Jimmy has school 2 nights a week so I only have to cook 3 nights.  So for me, on my nights off, I eat pizza but I figure everyone may not be a pizza addict like me so I modified it to fit normal peoples lives.

You see the weekends we usually eat out so the weekends are your free for all time.  Do what you want, I can't be held responsible.
The way I see it, if you cook for 3 nights straight you are bound to have tons of leftovers, we always do, so eat those on night number 4 and take night number 5 off and either order a pizza or make a frozen one, we do a little of both.
And because I love you THAT much, here are the recipes for you dolls.  We had these all last week and I can attest to their deliciousness.



FYI if you see something name brand on this list, it's just for good measure.  I always, I repeat ALWAYS, buy generic.  So there you have it, a week full of dinner all planned out for you.  You can see there are extra lines on the grocery list for you to put your tampons, condoms, and wine breakfast, lunches, and misc items.  I will try and do this every so often but I can't guarantee it'll be a weekly thing. 
You're welcome Enjoy!
