Menu Planning ~ August 2012

Two things I got done this weekend after getting back from vacation.

1st thing:  I bought bulk amounts of chicken and pork.  I’m stocked up with hamburgers currently, so I didn’t need anymore.

2nd thing:  I cleaned out my freezer and made an inventory of what was in the freezer.

3rd thing:  I made ready-to-go oven/grill/skillet meals.

Since I did these things, meal planning was easy.  My meal plan has only the main dish.  Depending on what I have in the house, I will determine the side dishes and veggies during the month.
