wADmM5mNLtOv064mhMCS_CYE3Bc Just Dorothy: It's Idea Sunday

It's Idea Sunday

What a beautiful. wonderful Sunday morning!  Steve and I got up and ran to town to Walgreens.  I haven't shopped in Walgreens in awhile.  Anyway, it is absolutely gorgeous outside, slightly overcast, nice and breezy.  We will definitely be grilling out tonight. 

I was just catching up on some of my favorite blogs and came across this idea from The Bumble in the Bee on posting a weekly menu.  I really like that idea.  In a magazine the other day I read some sort of impressive tidbit of info on the statistics of not eating meat for one day.  Of course, I can't remember what those statistic were or the magazine I was reading it in (see this post in reference!) However, the thing that stuck with me was pretty clear for a health and environmental standpoint.  Cut back on meat!  So, we're going meatless on Monday's.  Shhhhh, don't tell the boys. 

Here's what I think our dinner week will look like:

Monday - Kitchen Sink Quesadillas (Thanks Mrs. Bee and This Week for Dinner)

Tuesday - Pizza, I have a meeting out of town and this guarantees my kids will be fed while I'm gone :)

Wednesday - Meatball Subs with chips

Thursday - Chicken with potatoes

Friday - Spaghetti, salad

Saturday - Pork Chops, steamed veggies

Sunday - Meatloaf with mashed potatoes

I think I need to buy another bag of potatoes! 

Also, as of today, I'm beginning my quest to become the Money Saving Maven of Minden.  If any of my local (or not so local) friends and family want to send/save me their coupons, I'd be thrilled!! 

So, that will do it for today, I'm getting a little worn out from all this planning and organizing! lol
I'm also dwelling on the fact that I am lusting after a new camera.  Would LOVE to have a professional quality one to take pictures of my family.  If I can be the Money Saving Maven and save big bucks like those Extreme Couponing crazy folks do, I could possibly get the camera!  It's a total win/win, right??

    Hi! I love your little snippet about your life under your header. Sounds like you've got an amazing family. I also do menu planning. It helps me not to buy to much at the grocery story, (most times) ;) I am a new follower from the Hoppin Weekend. Have a great evening!

    Aww yay! I'm so glad that I was able to inspire you to plan your meals and post them! I really like your idea about having a meatless day of the week. Now that I look back at my menu, we have 2 meatless meals this week. I'm shocked and very excited! Good luck sticking to your plan this week. Planning it out is just half the battle.
