Weekly Menu Plan

First let me say.... I never intended to take over a month off from blogging.  The whole family has been adjusting to Mr. Mudpie's new work schedule, and things have been a little off here.  But I'm back now and have lots of recipes and crafty goodness to post in the coming weeks! 

In an effort to get back to menu planning on a regular basis, I will be posting our weekly menu plans here.  In the plast when I've done weekly plans, I find that we stick to most of the plan each week.  You know what?  That's good enough for me!  I plan meals around what we have in the pantry / freezers, so if we don't eat a meal one week, it can easily be shifted to the next week. 

You'll notice too, that on some days I plan a lunch, but not all days.  I usually only plan lunches for days that I know I will be busy and tempted to get fast food.  If I have a plan, I am more likely to use it instead of hitting the drive thru.  

My intentions are to post as many of these recipes as possible, after making each dish.  I make no promises though!
