Whats For Dinner Next Week 8-21-11

I just love planning a menu every week, I have done it for so many years it is just a part of what I do as a home manager. I have a special little journal that I put my menus in every month and then at the end of the year, I have a record of what we did every month.I try to plan a week of two at a time and sometimes a whole month. It really does save time and money, and allows me to plan left overs.  Sometimes if I sit with no idea what to plan I can just page back through some of my old menus and get some great idea's and now of course there is the blog index for What's For Dinner Next Week Menu's Tab at the top of the blog. As of this post we have a completed one year of weekly menus. So now lets take a look at this weeks menu.

  1. Hi Miz Helen, cooler weather will be here soon and I will definitely be doing more cooking. I should plan out menus for myself, so I know what to buy and what to stay away from, making healthier meals and planned leftovers. Cooking for myself shouldn't be so much of a chore! I love your idea of a journal. You are very organized. xo,

  2. Helen Love the title Home Manager think we all should use it more... I am impressed that weekly meal planning is something you have done for many years..would be a most interesting journaling, especially as tastes change ...

  3. Miz Helen, My mouth is watering from your menu. Everything looks so good.

  4. Dear Miz Helen,
    Not only do I love your place, but I absolutely adore this idea of having everybody to get together and pitch in with their dishes!!Feels a picnic every week:)Thanks so much!


  5. thanks for sharing this idea I try to plan menus ,but it takes some skill and you make this look so easy. As usual I am hungry by the time I finish reading!

  6. I am so impressed with your meal-planning management skills. I can't imagine having an entire year's worth of menus all planned out, but I really do like that idea. You should post some of the actual pages, I love looking at other people's food notes.

  7. Looks like a week of wonderful food! I will be right over. Come visit us today. We have a great tomato pie recipe.

  8. Helen, you are amazing and far better organized than me. I am really impressed. I hope you have a great evening. Blessings...Mary

  9. Congrats on a year of weekly menus!! What an accomplishment and amazing service. I am grateful to you for all I've learned about menu planning.

    Much love,

  10. Miz Helen, as always, your menu sounds wonderful! What an inspiration you are!!!

  11. Miz Helen, you're going to have a very yummy week. I'm copying your spoon bread and sweet potato recipes for future use, they both look delish.

    Thank you for taking the time to visit me, I hope we run into each other next week at Stone Gable.

  12. Hi Miz Helen,
    You are so organized, and all set for the week's menu. Love the sweet potato salad, and would love to try it!
    Thank you so much for your kind concern and care about my unfortunate piched nerve. I am much better now, finally after almost one week.
    You are a dear friend...have a wonderful week:D

  13. Hi Miz Helen, I like your idea for planning out your menu and then keeping them. I used to do something similar, but got out of the habit when my son was born and was so busy. I will have to get back to doing that. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'll have to catch up on yours since I've been off the blogs for a couple months. Your blackberry bushes are looking nice....:)

  14. I think your menu for the week sounds scrumptious! I wish I could plan for the week like that, it would certainly make my life so much easier come supper time each night!

    Best wishes and happy week,

  15. Wow that looks like a great week! I'm a new follower!
