Menu Planning 101

So I don't usually blog about food or what I cook because that time of the day is so hectic for me. Probably why we eat out so much ugh. I know not very frugal. But one of my new found blogging friends posted yesterday about meal planning and how to get started. She suggests to get started just write down 15 meals. Which was totally stressful for me ahh. She has more steps. Those of you who are awesome click here to see the rest of her challenge. As for me I am going to start slow and list my 15 meals for you!

1. Jerk Chicken Nachos
2. Skillet Lasagna--also pampered chef
3. Baked Potato Bar
4. Chicken Alfredo
5. Sweet and Sour Chicken or Pork
6. Pot Roast (or any roast)
7. Chicken Enchiladas
8. Tacos (usually beef and soft shells)
9. Hamburgers on grill
10. California Chicken club pizza--thanks again pampered chef
11. Spaghetti
12. Chicken Delight (AKA chicken balls or chicken pillows)
13. Vegetable Stir-fry
14. Shrimp Orzo Skillet--pampered chef
