Sometimes, I make a more detailed menu. This is helpful for weeks when I have several events going on and I want to remember to make a specific crock-pot meal for one day, then a 15 minute grab and go meal on another day. I also use this when I have a few special meals to plan for in the week, such as a birthday meal or a holiday meal.
Here is a template for that kind of menu: You can print it out and use it if you would like.

Other times, I take a more relaxed approach. This is when I need a little less control during a less stressful week, or when I have to quickly throw together a menu and don't have time to be so detailed. I always try to make a good mix of quick and easy meals, crock-pot meals and take-your-time-country-cookin' kind of meals.
