Menu Planning Monday- New Years' Eve

One of my New Years' resolutions is to begin weekly meal planning for the family. Meal planning helps prevent that 5 pm "Oh my gosh, what are we going to have for dinner?" panic, helps you make meals that are healthier and well balanced, and can help the checkbook too. Especially if you plan your weekly meals around what's on sale that week at the grocery store. This post is part of a blog sharing that is hosted by Org Junkie. Check out her blog-it is awesome! She has the best ideas on getting organized and staying that way- something I really struggle with! I'm hoping by joining this that I will be more consistent about planning out our meals, because I'll know that I'll be posting them every week. Each week I'll post what we'll be having for dinner, even though I 've planned out breakfast, lunch and snacks also! So here's this week's menu. And here's to New Years' Resolutions! (This week only includes 3 days worth of meals because we will be out of town Wednesday through Saturday, or at least the kids and I will be. Steven's on his own!)

Monday 12/31 (New Years' Eve Party): Make your own pizzas, veggie tray, fruit tray, cheese tray, wassail, sparkling juice, chocolate chip cookies

Wednesday 1/02: Out of town!

Thursday 1/03: Out of town!

Friday 1/04: Out of town!

Saturday 1/05: Out of town!

Sunday 1/06: golden mushroom porkchops, baked potatoes, steamed broccoli
(These porkchops are super easy! Put your chops in a crock pot, add 1-2 cans of golden mushroom soup [depending on how much gravy you want]. Cook on low 7-8 hours. Serve gravy over chops, or my favorite, on your baked potato! YUM!!!)
