Menu Plan Monday

It's been awhile since I've actually menu planned and share it will y'all.

Before I even get started can I just make a statement...

grocery shopping with a toddler!

I'll give you a moment to get all your ahhhs and I hear ya girls. Miss Bekah is tall enough to reach into my buggy and I made the mistake of taking her to the store alone really close to bed time. I spent way more time then I normally do in the store because I was bending down ever minute to pick up something she had grabbed and throw out of the cart. At least the store wasn't crowded.

Last week I went out with all of my girlfriends and I was admiring (as I always do) my friend, Laura's fingernails. She has her nails done professionally and I so wanted to take a trip to the salon as like an 8th month pick me up. So, I made a deal with JAG - If I meal plan and cook all week with no eating out can I please have my nails done? Of course he agreed - anything to motivate me to cook and help our budget!

I was so excited to see that Edie at Life in Grace started doing a series this week on menu planning! Her posts taught me how to plan through Google Calendars and link it to my phone, so I'm no longer printing recipes. I can also share it with JAG's ipad so that if I am running late he can pitch in! LOVE it!!!

Go visit her blog at: She broke everything down into three parts: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. I just adore Edie even more now!!!

So anyway to my menu...I did my best to give you a pinterest pic and link where available! I am starting with Thursday, Jan 17th...since that is the day I got my act together. Can you believe I have my entire menu planned through the end of the month. I really hope to start freezing some things for after Morgan gets here...nest nest nest.
