I do two week menus too, since I get paid bi-weekly I only sort of plan lunch though, since we mostly eat leftovers or PB&J for lunch.

I have not even thought about Easter though, I guess if we have company I will make ham or lasagna depending on who comes (more than half our company is vegetarian)... or maybe we will go to MILs.

I don't plan it by the day either, just plan 14 or 16 meals and choose from the list as we go :P... here are the ones we have left for this week-

1- chili, salad and cornbread
2- spag and sausage, peppers & onions, salad
3 - roasted chicken, roasted onions, rice and greenbeans
4- fish sticks, mac-n-cheese, corn (the all yellow meal)
5- leftover chicken (either enchaladas or casserole depending on my mood)
6- home made pizza one w/ spinach and garlic and one pepperoni for the kids
7- tacos and salad
