I created a public Google calendar with a rotating menu. It's laid out so that I don't have the same "day" in several years...lol. With 18 breakfasts and 12 lunches, every day is covered. Dinners are a little more tricky. I have poultry on Mondays and Wednesdays; there are 29 weeks worth of poultry menus (58 individual meals). Tuesdays I have pork; there are 16 of those. Thursdays are beef nights; 19 different menus there. Fridays are when I do my food shopping, so those are pizza/pasta nights. I only have 9 of those. I left the weekend dinners open so far. I'm planning on making at least 25 weekend menus with everything from stew to fish to "Sunday Dinners". Feel free to check out my calendar (all recipes have links, though with Google you have to cut/paste as it doesn't make it an actual hyperlink).

Awesome ideas! I haven't got that far of planning a week ahead. I'm lucky if I can plan my day's meals in the morning. Thanks for sharing!

I used to use Google Docs for meal planning - but found that my husband's work schedule makes our life so crazy that I needed something I could edit super-quick-on-the-fly-like-five-minutes-b
efore-dinner... my solution: post it notes.

I plan however much in advance I can - usually a week, and rearrange as needed. The only downside is I can't see it from work, lol.

As for what we're eating tonight? Chicken & noodle casserole, with veggies. Yay!

Looking for some good nutritious meal ideas. Tomorrow I am having a turkey breast that I'm going to roast in the slow cooker so it will be ready by the time I get home from golf in the evening. Still have to run and pick up today's supper though. Not sure what I'm going to have today.
