Meal Planning for the week ahead

I've done up a 2 week meal plan while we were away... but it won't kick in for another week or two because
in the mean time I need to use up a few odds and ends that are still in the freezer from whenever... like the hamburgers Melinda made up a month or so ago.

So what will this week look like?

Sunday we had...
Lunch: Dim Sims
Dinner: Bean & barley vegie soup

Monday will be:
Lunch: Zucchini Muffins made by Melinda
Dinner: Beef n vegie rice

Lunch: Soup and home made bread
Dinner: Sausage Stew

Lunch: French toast & salad
Dinner: Nj is birthday boy today so he has chosen Fish & Chips
Must make a super delicious cake for today too!!

Lunch: Tuna salad
Dinner: Savoury chicken casserole on rice (hubby's favourite)

Lunch: Scrambled eggs on toast
Dinner: Bolognese on baked potatoes

Lunch: Hamburgers and corn on the cob
Dinner: Smoked salmon and pea risotto

Some of this will no doubt change but I find having a framework like this, keeps life sane and me from losing the plot... and helps get the children in bed at a reasonable hour... and helps the grocery budget!
What about you - How often do you meal plan? Does it work for you?
