In efforts to become more organized (a lifelong, out of my comfort-zone experience) I've been trying to plan menus. I've hunted websites for menu planning tips (they just tell you how great it is to make a menu) and for new recipes (AllRecipes.com is a favorite). I've made plans, just to abandon them the next day! Hopefully I'll remember this is here and if this menu works I'll reuse it. I'd like to get three or four good menus that I can reuse through the month. This is also the first time I'll be using bulgur to make homemade tabbouleh. I read on this website that bulgur can be used to "stretch" meat (like using bulgur in meatballs to supplement ground beef)Plus it adds whole grain goodness. Another website with lots of bulgur recipes is here.
So here is another go at it. Snacks will be quick, a few pretzels, a piece of fruit or cheese, yogurt.
My main hang-up is that I don't want to be locked in to some specific meals if I don't want to make/eat them that day. I feel like throwing the whole list out if I don't particularly feel like eating pancakes for breakfast on Tuesday! So I'll not list them by day, just by meals.
