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.

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.

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.

- bacon & eggs with cornbread muffins
