I apologize I wasn’t able to make a lunch hour post today! It was a busy day with a meeting in the morning and our usual Monday staff lunch. Today we agreed on Chick-Fil-A for lunch. I had never been to Chick-Fil-A much before I worked at my church (the other staff members love it), but it’s growing on me. I really enjoy their grilled chicken salads… they’re fresh, the perfect size, and full of healthy vegetables. Today I opted for the Char-grilled Chicken Garden Salad, and I would definitely recommend it! It was very good. I left out the cheese and croutons that came with it, but ate every last bite of everything else.
After work on Mondays, I have made it my weekly routine to stop at the grocery store on my way home from work to stock up on groceries for the week. On Sunday evening before I go to bed, I make a dinner menu for the week so I have a better idea of what I’ll need from the grocery store. I have found that making a menu for the week prevents us from going out to eat too much, ensures that we have plenty of fruits and vegetables in the house all week, and helps us stay within our budget for food. I keep a cute little notepad on our refrigerator with the weekly menu and a grocery list right underneath it.
Cody has come to appreciate the weekly menu so he doesn’t always have to ask what’s for dinner (I appreciate it too! ;)). I definitely plan on doing this when we have kids so I don’t have to hear the “What’s for dinner?” question every night. The grocery list is convenient if we run out of something in the middle of the week, it’s on the list for the next week and I won’t forget it. You can find these cute little notepads at Target, book stores, craft stores, etc. I highly recommend it!!
Questions for the Day:
- Do you make a weekly menu for you or your family?
- How often do you go to the grocery store?
