What's for Eats This Week (and why we have a menu plan!)

Menu planning takes time, but it saves money and time during the week. If you have an idea of what sorts of things you have that can make a meal, you won't be so quick to order a pizza. Plus, if you create a grocery list from what you're going to cook for dinner, you won't need to make extra stops at the grocery store. However, in case anyone has noticed, "Winner Winner Onion Chicken Dinner" has repeatedly shown up on our dinner menu... and it has not yet been made. We plan our menu, but we do not necessarily stick to this. Sometimes, things come up - Friday, we went to a gathering at our apartment complex and Subway was provided for us. A week or so ago, we took my dad out to dinner. So we plan a menu, but we leave ourselves open to change too. Here's what we're planning this week:
