Menu Planning Monday

I have never bought into those meal planning helper sites.  You know the sites that send you a plan each week and help you with the grocery list.  I don't mind menu planning and actually have fun doing it.  Sure it takes some time but, having everything set up for the week isn't that difficult.  Just takes a little organization.  
The reason I like doing it myself is because I can menu plan around what our nights are during the week, easy meals for busy nights, more complicated ones when we will have more time.  
I also can shop based on what is on sale.  We have a grocery budget and I work hard to stay within that budget.  
Well, last week I was reading my "Parent" magazine and came across a 5 easy meal plan.  All 5 dinners seemed like something the kids would eat and the grocery list looked pretty simple.  
So, I am going to try it.  I will let you know how it went at the end of the week.  

Here it is:

Chicken Tostadas
Wild Rice and Quinoa Bowl
Lemon Shrimp Orecchietta
Speedy Chicken Curry
Grilled Turkey Sandwiches

These meals don't include sides so I am planning on making salad and then a different vegetable each night with them. 

It looks good and having the grocery list already complete seems easy.  Wish me luck!
