    Default 2020 Meal Planning Challenge

    Whether it's to save money, expand your meal repertoire, or eliminate the dreaded, "What in the world are we going to eat tonight" conundrum, meal planning can help make your daily life easier.

    What's on your menu this week?

    Through January 5, I have these on my menu:
    2 - Sweet 'N' Sour Sausage
    3 - Pasta Puttanesca
    4 - Bavarian Meatball Hoagies
    5 - Cranberry Chicken

    I've got my menus pretty much planned out for this month and only have 3 eating-out days scheduled and those are for birthdays or travel days.

    Choices this week, based on what is at hand:

    -- bacon wrapped turkey, peas, french carrots
    -- italian sausage, zucchini noodles, roast sweet potato, garlic bread
    -- pork bbq sandwiches, salad
    -- chicken pot pie
    -- fish chowder, bread
    -- sloppy joe sandwiches, salad
    -- potluck ??

    End of the week may get rearranged if the big winter storm hits.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    A clean house is a sign of a wasted life. ~unknown

    I'm going through the pantry and came up with these menu items:

    - Baked ziti w/sausage & herb bread
    - Smoked chicken w/beans and rice
    - Beef tacos
    - Asian dumplings in chicken broth
    - Tuna sandwiches w/ pickles

    Tonight is enchiladas, As I was looking through the downstairs freezer, I found about 5 lbs ground beef blocks +6 patties...I have a ground beef cooking mag, so I'll look at it and see if anything looks new & tasty.
