Menu Plan Monday (December 10-16)

December 10, 2012

Friday afternoon as I sat down to plan my menu for this coming week, my husband started to laugh. He couldn’t believe I was already putting together a menu for the week to come when I hadn’t even finished cooking for that night’s dinner. It does seem like I’m always planning the next meal, but to make sure we eat Nutritioulicious meals I need to put my thinking cap on in advance – I can’t just wait until the day of to figure out what we’re going to eat. How far in advance do you plan your meals?

After looking through the fridge and pantry to see what ingredients I have open and ready to use, I came up with the following menu:
