SO here's my little organization station....
my menu planner, to the left I have a dry erase board and my list of MUST DOs for each day. I wrote down all the meals that we eat often and put them on color coded magnet rectangles and then I simply go through the magnets and place the name of the meal on the board! The rest of the meals are kept in a small plastic container ( I do have more than 30 recipes).
Sorry for the blurry picture, a photographer I am not. I have magnets for when we know we will be going out for dinner or for when we will try something new. In additon , there are little squares that have the sides for the meals. Talk about sweet.
Anyway, The Homes I Have Made is a great blog:) She sure made menu planning for me easier and much prettier:)
Here is my menu for the week:
Monday: Costco Pizza
Tuesday: Chicken Lo Mein and rice
Wednesday: Sweet & Sour Chicken (recipe below) and rice with salad.
Thursday: Hamburgers, Tater tots and corn
Friday: French's Chicken (recipe on the French's fried onion container), mashed potatoes and green beans
Saturday: Out for my sista's bday:)
Sweet & Sour Chicken
*2 chickens cut up (or we use 4 chicken breast)
*1 bottle creamy Russian dressing
*1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
*1-10 oz jar apricot preserves
Place chicken pieces in a baking dish. In a separate dish, mix dressing, soup mix and preserves. Pour over chicken. Bake covered at 325 for about 1 hour. Remove cover and bake 20-30 minutes longer.
(We serve it over brown rice)
Have a super, fantastic week!
