Meal Planning

We are going back to the basics this week, folks. Try not to fall asleep by the end. I kid. Sort of.

Tuesday: Tacos

Wednesday: Spaghetti and meat sauce

Thursday: Pork chops

Friday: Homemade pizza

Saturday: Breakfast for dinner (bacon and eggs)

Meal Planning

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted my evening meal plan. I am learning a lot from this process. I do tend to plan a new meal for almost every night, but in reality at least one or two meals get bumped each week.

Sunday: Indian-spiced Pork Roast with Cumin-Curry Carrots (recipe is from Against All Grain, and it is as delicious as it sounds)

Monday: Life Group family night — breakfast for dinner. I will be contributing Maple-Sage Sausage with Cinnamon Apples, also from Against All Grain)

Tuesday: Eating out! We plan to find a fun place to eat at the new Railyard area.

Wednesday: Creamy Spinach and Sausage Pasta

Thursday: Autumn Beef Stew in a Pumpkin

Friday: Enchiladas

Saturday: Italian Runzas (going to wing it recipe-wise; when Jason calls it close enough to his beloved Italian Runzas, I’ll post the recipe)

Meal Planning

So this seemed to be helpful to at least a couple of people last week ideas-wise, and I know it was helpful to me to have all the recipes that I was using in one place. For what it’s worth, here is another week of what’s on the menu at my house:

Sunday: Spaghetti

Monday: Pretzel bites

Tuesday: Pasta bake (a holdover from last week; it was on the menu but didn’t happen)

Wednesday: Ham and cheese sliders

Thursday: Spaghetti and Greek Meatballs (yep, spaghetti twice in one week; that’s how we roll)

Friday: Breakfast for dinner (this was also on the menu for last week and didn’t happen)

Saturday: Italian Runzas — I am still looking for a good recipe for the filling; I will use a Trader Joe’s pizza crust for the dough

Meal Planning

I think I probably start a new meal planning “system” every 3 months. I am open to whatever tips you have — especially for simplifying meal planning and preparation and for saving money. Lay them on me.

Here’s what’s on the menu for dinners at our house this week:

Sunday: Sloppy Joes (and frozen vegetables)

Monday: Rice bowls (with chicken, beans, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, guacamole, salsa)

Tuesday: Pork roast (with mashed potatoes and onions and carrots)

Wednesday: Italian sausage

Thursday: Tacos

Friday: Pancakes and eggs
