Menu Plan Monday (June 11th)

So I will have to say that I am pretty proud of myself today.  I went to the grocery store this morning without a formal list, which has the potential to be very dangerous, but it went very well.  When I got home and got everything put away I had to move the groceries around groceries I know we've had for a while.  So out of frustration I cut index cards into thirds and wrote down every type of meat, side dish, and desert I had.  Then I went through my sauces and seasoning mixes and wrote down all the potential meals we had.  After writing everything down I laid them out in the floor and matched sides with meats and created a menu for the next three weeks.  I made a new list for a few things I need to complete a few meals and then hopefully we will be able to diminish the food we have in the house and then start over. :D  So here is my Menu Plan Monday for the next few weeks.

Cajun Alfredo Skillet (I'm excited to try this one!  All the Kraft recipes I've tried have been great so far)

I'm not making too many side dishes with these recipes so that I can reheat leftovers and use it all so we don't waste a lot of food.  I'm also going to be saving things that are easy to reheat for my fiancé’s lunch.  My lunches are now catered by a Master Chef. ;)  No seriously, they are.  Since I have developed a major sweet tooth I also want to start making jello with fruit in it so it's less fattening than other options that I tend to go for in late at night.
