[meal planning :: Week One.]

I always start September with a BANG ... and then it fades by week three - can anyone relate??  But I DO know this about myself - if I take a few minutes and organize, than I can accomplish pretty much whatever I set my mind to.  If I get overwhelmed and DON'T do it?  CHAOS ... and I usually gain about 5lbs in two days from emotional eating.


So ... this is for ME.  I do this for ME.  For MY sanity and for MY calm.  If it helps you, then that blesses me ... but please do not think that this is normal.  It's September ... let's see how many weeks it takes for me to fall of the wagon *wink* ... 

My plan, for those who are interested, is to connect links to my "Make By Homemakingirl" site - where the recipes will be located.  Again - this is for ME.  So, instead of losing the list of meal-planning-paper that my children have inevitably turned into a robot somewhere, I can come here and find EVERYTHING.  This works ... again.  For week one, anyways *grin*.

Here's this week ... 


Dinner ::   Egg-Drop-Chicken-Noodle soup with veggies and dip


Breakfast :: hard boiled eggs and toast
School lunches ::  pizza pinwheels, sliced apples, snicker-doodle cookies
Dinner ::  Crock pot Chicken Cordon Bleu, steamed broccoli, brown rice


Breakfast ::  pancakes with maple syrup
School lunches ::  ham and cheese buns, carrots and ranch dip, fruit snacks
Dinner ::  Crock pot Garlicky Pork Tenderloin, oven baked yams, peas, salad


Breakfast ::  cereal and milk
School lunches :: macaroni and cheese (thermos), apple sauce, cucumbers and dip
Dinner :: Wraps with Ground Turkey


Breakfast ::  Land of Nod Cinnamon rolls
School lunches ::  pizza rolls, pretzels, grapes
Dinner ::  OUT

Have a great one!

Thank you so much for posting this. You inspired me to meal plan, starting today, rather than starting next week. It has been something I've wanted to do for a couple years now. Do not worry, if you fall off the wagon. You'll have gotten me off to a good start!

For some reason, my blog link isn't working, so just search The Glorious Goofy Gilbank Gang and you'll find me ;0) I don't know if you remember me. I introduced myself awhile ago (on line, not in person). Also Your mom taught my friend Diana piano lessons ;0)
