While I'm a little late (also typical), I have done my Epiphany Season/Ordinary Time menu and thought I'd share it with you! I love having it planned out...I don't have to think what is for dinner - or lunch - or breakfast. But I will say that we are terrible at keeping to my plan for breakfast, excellent with lunch, and fairly good with dinner. Things do come up, so sometimes we have to "punt". (I keep a supply of quick and easy dinners around: frozen asian dumplings, pasta and sauce, etc)
If you are not a menu planner, this may seem like a straightjacket. I promise you it isn't. It actually gives you quite a bit of freedom! Give it a try and see what you think. Plan out some basic meals. Try not to plan pasta meals back to back. Or soup for lunch and dinner. Give some thought to how you can piggy-back meals (roast chicken becomes soup later in the week). Often I keep one evening free and call it "Clean out the Fridge"....we eat leftovers or whatever we scrounge up. (We aren't doing it now because hubby and I are eating leftovers at lunch - the planned meals in the menu are for the kids.) Just remember the menu plan is there to help you...if you all have a hankering for tacos and the menu says pasta - ditch the plan! You own it, not the other way around.
Recipes for my menu plans will be posted here and there. If there is one you'd really like to have, please let me know.

Have a productive Saturday and a restful Sunday!
