    Looks good! I should see if I have a roast stashed in the freezer for this month.

    Here's mine, or as much of it as I have worked out.

    minestrone soup
    coconut chicken, sweet potato
    dinner out
    vegetable sushi
    fish
    bbq pork sandwiches, potatoes
    gyros

    roast turkey breast
    pasta bolognese
    sweet potato
    bratwurst
    chicken quesadillas
    pork stir fry
    bbq brisket, potatoes

    fish
    ham
    dinner out
    chili dogs, sweet potato
    turkey pot pie
    stir fry
    bbq pork

    chicken, potatoes
    ?
    fish
    ?
    sweet potato
    turkey
    stir fry

    pasta bolognese
    cashew chicken
    dinner out
    potatoes
    fish
    sweet potato
    turkey

    As you can see, I have a bag of sweet potatoes from the garden and a bag of potatoes to use up. DH is also supposed to eat chicken, fish and lean turkey more often, so I have spaced those out through the month. In most cases I will buy whatever vegetables are fresh and cheap each week and fit them in with what I have planned.

    The last couple of weeks are purposely vague, as I don't know what I will be in the mood to make or eat by then.
    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.

    those are great menu plans! I want to start doing ours for the month but we are currently doing them weekly. I think once the stockpile gets built up more we will switch!

    BeachFun,

    How do you get away with serving soup as the main course? I'd love to do that with these guys, but with three men in the house, they'd all complain about not having enough meat in their meal.

    Thanks!

    I only get away with it in the winter and I normally try to make it a hearty soup. I'm not home Tuesday's for dinner and this is easy and my husband appreciates not having to cook. I also normally make the kinds of soup that I do not like and would never make if I was going to be eating. Chili, vegetable soup, broccoli and cheese, ham and bean. A lot of times they do have a beef or meat base to them. You don't need a lot of meat if there is a good flavor of meat going through the soup. I also make them so that its sort of like a stew (thicker). Rachael Ray refers to that as a Stoup (not quite soup, not quite stew) Also making homemade corn bread, bread or sandwiches makes the meal more filling.
