Putting a menu together for my family is sometimes challenging. There are times that I may be the only one eating the food for the week. Working around family schedules. I prep me with a piece of paper for my groceries and one for the menu: I generally do not look at sales, being choices are slim here in Holland MI to purchase groceries. I am picky when it comes to places to shop plus it depends; on how much time I have to go to several different stores to purchase all the things I need to get. Here is my menu for the week:
Prior to writing my menu; I look in the freezer to see what meats I need to use. Write them down so I can make sure I can find recipes centered around them. This week I am primarily using one cookbook, and that is my new purchase of Maria Emmerich’s “quick and easy Ketogenic Cooking”.
Here is my menu for the week:
Tuesday breakfast: Tex-Mex Breakfast gravy and keto biscuits:
Lunch: Wedge Salad with Mini Pastrami Roll ups
Dinner: Fish Taco’s
Wednesday breakfast: cream of no wheat cereal
Lunch: Salad niccose
Dinner: Out (we have an event tonight to attend)
Thursday breakfast: chocolate shake and bacon
lunch: Turkey Sushi
Dinner: Skillet Lasagna
Friday breakfast: Cinn Roll minute muffins
lunch: Tuna salad
Dinner: Meatballs with zucchini chips
Now when writing my menu’s. I will always write next to the menu item the page number, and since I have many books; I have a letter labeled to each book. Example: Fish Taco’s pg 230 L. That way I will not be searching through many books, trying to find a recipe.
I will often try to organize items on my menu to time I have. I will write notes if something needs to be prepared in advance. Saving time is good, otherwise, you can waste time in the kitchen.
Preparing grocery list, mine is organized. I divide it into columns. One column for Fruit/Veg, Dairy, Meats, and Misc (usually is the middle isle of the grocery store. That way when shopping I can get everything I need in that part of the store. Time management.
I will be posting some pictures of the weekly menu. I will do my best to post daily. So that way you will have fresh recipes.
