Two week of Meals

Mom whats for Breakfast? Mom whats for Lunch? Mom, Mom whats for Dinner? Can I have a snack?
Its seems like my day can completely get taken away with these question. I can spend half my day in the kitchen figuring out what to make and then cooking. This is an area I need to get organized and under control. I have tried different methods some of them have worked other have not.
This is what I'm going to try now. I have made list of 14 different dinners. So I have 2 weeks worth of dinner written down and I shopped for all that I would need to make them. I don't assign my meals a day because I like to change my mind. I do check my list the night before to see what I want the next night so I can pull anything from the freezer to thaw and take note of any fresh veggies I will need to pick up.
  • Oven Roasted Chicken with steamed veggies
  • Sweat and Sour Pork Chops (croc pot) with rice (rice cooker) and steamed broccoli
  • Pasta with Sun-Dried tomato pesto sauce
  • French Bread Pizza and salad
  • Spaghetti and meatballs
  • Pot Roast w/ potatoes and carrots
  • Enchiladas made with leftover meat from Roast
  • Potato Soup (croc pot) and homemade bread
  • Tortilla Soup (croc pot) and salad
  • Shepherd's Pie and steamed Broccoli
  • Chili (croc pot) and baked potatoes
  • Baked Chicken and corn
  • BBQ Chicken (croc pot), with rice or mash potatoes and corn
  • Lemon Pepper marinated Chicken (croc pot), rice and green beans

I have tried this with 1 week of meals and it went really well so I hope it works just as well with 2 weeks.
I'll try to start adding some of my recipes.
