Having meal plan is a great way to stay on the ball throughout the week. It also helps you save money.

As I mentioned last week, I’m trying to do more baking. Not only does it save money and let us choose the ingredients, but it also tastes soooo much better. Especially these homemade hamburger buns.

Here’s what we’re eating this week:

13. Hamburgers on Homemade Buns, Rice and Bean Salad, Green Salad

14. Anniversary Dinner! We’re having the same meal we had on our wedding day.

15. Quesadillas, Veggie Dippers

16. Grilled Chicken, Rice Pilaf, Vegetables

17. Sandwich Bar with Baguette, Broccoli Slaw, Fruit

18. Pizza Night

19. Grilled Chicken, Cheesy Potatoes, Salad

    I may now try some homemade hamburger buns too!
    Here’s our menu for the week:

  5. Thanks for your menu plan- I’m often inspired seeing what other people are making.
    I’m lacking discipline today but finally figured out my menu plan for the week.

  6. I’ve been trying it far it’s hit or miss. I make the plan, but then keep deviating from it. Anyway, I must have issues. 🙂 I made a two-week plan based on regions of the world, which is something I enjoy–Italian, Middle Eastern, Asian, American, French, etc. Then there are days for breakfast food and seafood. It seems like something I can stick with. There’s nothing super detailed, so I don’t think it’s worth listing here, but it’s a start. Thanks for the encouragement.

  7. Happy Anniversary!

  8. I’m halfway through The Kitchen Counter Cooking School and it’s just what I needed to get me out of an uninspired cooking rut that’s lasted way too long. Your site is an inspiration as well! Happy Anniversary!
