Hi everyone,

Just found this thread and thought I'd like to chime in, if you don't mind. I menu-plan a month at a time, and have been doing so for over 5 years now. Now and then, I fall off the wagon and wing it, but mostly I stick to it b/c it makes such a difference in both my stress level and in our grocery budget. I do my menus on the computer, and after the month is over, I just file them in the back of my recipe binder -- that way, I have years' worth of menus to look back on to give me ideas if I'm feeling uninspired. I'm all about not reinventing the wheel, yk?

Oh, and a * indicates that I doubled or tripled the recipe to freeze for later...

November 2008
1 Rotis with curried chickpea filling*, tomatillo salsa, sweet potato fries, refried black beans, sour cream
2 Vegetable tempura, miso soup, sushi rice, cuke salad, edamame
3 Pumpkin chili, cornbread

7 White pizza w/rosemary and roasted tomatoes
8 Yellow Pea and coconut milk soup, flatbreads
9 Greek Chicken Souvlaki, Roasted Potatoes or orzo, Tzaziki Sauce, Greek Salad, Pita, Dolmas

12 Pierogies, creamed spinach, homemade applesauce, baked beans
13 Date Night
14 DH's bday: chicken marsala and spinach and mushroom crepes, salad, apple pie and vanilla ice cream
15 Thai squash-fried rice, cuke salad, Thai egg rolls, sweet/spicy dipping sauce
16 Spaghetti squash, homemade tomato sauce, salad, homemade bread
