Menu Plan Monday 2/1-2/7

Posted by Hope at 8:10 AM

I spent a bit of time on Friday and created my menu for the entire month of February !  I was soo proud of myself, and shocked at how easy it was.  I had a list of things I wanted to make and knew I needed  Crock Pot meal on Mondays due to meetings in the evenings.  I also had one "YoYo" night a week and we have pizza on Fridays (either frozen, homemade or delivered).  I used Google Calendar because my ical is full already of everything else, so using Google was a lot easier.  I even put the points with each menu item on my calendar.  I copied and pasted the recipe in the details, so I can print an "agenda" and it shows all the ingredients and recipe!  AWESOME!!!

6 whole chicken breast halves without skin -- skinned and split
