Eat's of the Week ~ October 24, 2010

Since Keith and I have decided that it is better for me to stay home and manage the house I am going to start planning meals out so when I am running errands or cleaning the house dinner is not on my mind.
Keith is in bold above because this was Keith's choice. I was looking for jobs because he wanted me to. He is the head of our house and I am doing as he wishes.
Now, back to meal planning... Last week I planned out all our meals on Sunday and posted the list on the microwave and when I was preparing Monday's meal I looked to see what we were having on Tuesday to see what I can do to get it going whether it was getting the meat out of the freezer or to double check that we have all the ingredients to make it. This was very helpful!
Keith's day graciously gave us the meat from a deer that he killed this year and it amounted to 19 packs of ground venison and 15 packs of cubed venison. This is going to be very helpful and I can't wait to make chili with it. On to this weeks meals...
Crock pot Meatloaf
Lima Beans
Mashed Potatoes
Chicken Pot Pie
Potato Skillet Meal (more on this Thursday)
Financial Peace (we eat dinner at the class)
Baked Beans
Pumpkin Carving Party (we will eat whatever they are serving up)
So what are you eating this week? Do you plan it out?

Laura Susan ~ I was once a wanna be menu planner also, your time will come. I just made the meatloaf like normal and made a loaf in the bottom of the crock pot and you cook it either on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. I hope you guys are doing well :)

Jennifer ~ Menu planning is such a geat idea. I am glad I have finally got the energy to do it!
