How To Plan: Meal Planning Mondays

by How To Mommy on 03.11.12

So far my attempts to get organized in 2012 are going really well.

Remember my cleaning schedule?  I’ve stuck to it so far!

Another component I’m adding into my routine is a weekly meal plan.  I’m loving looking through the ads, finding coupons, and planning our meals!

Check out what’s going to be cooking in our kitchen this week:


Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake
Mixed berries


Balsamic Glazed Salmon
Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Ready Rice
Roasted Asparagus


Apricot Glazed Pork Chops
Near East Rice Pilaf
(My husband’s favorite.  Granted, our meals are a little “ricey” this week, but it’s a good, easy side dish!)
Green Beans


Homemade Chicken & Noodles


Pizza with friends


I’m doing a 5K St. Patrick’s Day run with some girl friends that’s followed with pizza and beer!
I’m assuming that means hot dogs and veggies for the girls.  It’s my hubby’s specialty.


Prime Rib
Potato Casserole
Birthday Cake
{for my grandma’s 82nd birthday}

Now it’s your turn! Link up your own Meal Plan or your Favorite Recipe.

Here’s how it works. Every Monday, I’ll post my meal plan, and Kayse will post hers. Each Meal Planning Monday will be a link up, so we can all share recipes, tips, and meal planning ideas! We only ask that you do two things in order to participate:

1. Follow Finding Hope on GFC and The How To Mommy on Bloglovin’.

2. Grab out button code from the box below and include our button somewhere in your post!

Your Pork Chops sound yummy! I usually just marinate mine in steak and chop! But that sounds good and something my husband wouldn’t eat so I guess I will stick to my steak and chop:)

I’m trying them for the first time and I don’t think my husband will be too excited either, but I am! 🙂

Meal planning is the BEST way to save money. Coupons are great, ads are awesome but having a plan is the surest of the sure-fire methods. When you have a plan, you can easily go shopping just once week and be all set! No extra trips and not extra money spent on things you don’t need for your plan. Thanks for the ideas for what to cook!
