Menu Plan Monday: Stuck in a rut!


When I was first thinking of what we would have for supper, I had things on my mind like:  Spaghetti, Meatloaf, and Chicken and Broccoli.  Then, I realized that that would not do.  Seems like we are having the exact same things every single week and I am getting bored.  So, I thought I would try some new things.  If they go well, I will be adding recipes to the site later.  Take note, not all things on my list will be new.. otherwise, we might be really hungry. LOL!

Be sure to print out your coupons this week!  Remember, you should be able to print them twice.


Ok, on to my menu plan for this week:

Monday: Pizza night (Totino’s will save this busy day!)

Tuesday: Old El Paso’s ABC Taco (Amazing Bacon Cheeseburger Taco) (trying something new)

Wednesday: Girl Scout Stew (we haven’t had this in a while)

Thursday: leftovers

Friday:  Fiesta Spaghetti Taco (iCarly loves it, why won’t we?  Trying something new)

  1. It is easy to get into a menu plan rut! I was feeling the same way, so this week I’m trying four new recipes-hopefully at least some of them will be hits! Found you via orgjunkie link up :)

    • I used to sit down at my table with all my supplies and make my plan, then shop, etc. I have been so busy that I have cut that out. SO, I sit at my computer on Monday morning trying to crank out ideas and it just doesn’t work well. I really need to get back to my real menu planning!

  2. Hi! Stopping by via MPM. Trying new things is always fun! I have never heard of Girl Scout Stew before. I may have to try that myself sometime. Have a great week!

    So I don’t get in a rut, I try to plan at least 2 new recipes a week. Then, we add them to the “keeper” list. Actually, as I’m coming up on the one year anniversary of my blog, I noticed that I will have 52 weeks of unique menus planned. I’m pretty excited about that!

    • Carrie, I never thought of that! I am on my 3rd year and have menu planned almost since the beginning. Hmmm…. maybe I should just start over? LOL!

  4. I am so excited to see how they are. My kids like iCarly and always want “Spencer’s Famous Spaghetti Tacos” so it is neat to finally try them.
