Do You Struggle With Menu Planning? Here Is An Easy Family Menu Plan

Time for a menu plan! Last week I didn't make a menu plan at home and it was NUTSO around here. Seriously, nutso! We had a crazy scheduled week but it is nice to have the supplies on hand with some sort of meal ideas. To keep it real, I don't always make the menu of the week here at home because some recipes that I make during the week are new and need photos. I like to try out recipes on my family before sharing here unless they are a guest chef recipe.

For my blog's Menu Plan Monday I'm usually sharing a previous week menus. IF I do not post a menu for the week here then chances are I didn't even plan one at home which led to my crazy week last week. How about you? Do you struggle with menu planning?

We are back at Menu Planning Monday! Thanks to all for stopping in, check out the recipes and other menu plans to give you some new ideas!

MondayVietnamese Pho - chicken or seafood - Honestly people this is a super easy recipe! Have you ever had pho or heard of it? If not, try this recipe and then you'll know what I'm talking about. We love Pho and it cost around $10 a bowl at restaurants. I didn't do the math but I'm sure it cost $10 to make a huge crock pot at home. My family would eat this once a week if I made it for them. I'm not sure why I don't because it is so healthy!

I know I should menu plan and I try, but ultimately end up not sticking to it :( Maybe this time will be different lol!

I absolutely struggle with meal planning. I've made meal plans, bought the stuff for them, but when the time comes around to cook them, I'm just done for the day. :-(

I love to cook but cooking for a large family can be interesting. We are a family of 11 right now and 9 of those are growing kids who seem to have bottomless stomachs!

i greatly struggle with meals for my family. All of these sound delicious to me but my older daughter and husband will not touch most of them. I wish they weren't so picky!

Debra Gordon said...

I personally love to cook when I have the energy but many times my kids don't give me the time. What was your favorite out of them all to make>?
