Menu Plan Monday - 2013 week 7
I have a confession to make. . .I am hitting a brick wall in my meal planning. I'm sitting here right now, with a completely blank calendar for the week. Nothing planned and no ideas. . .not one.
In my freezer, I have chicken, pork tenderloin, sausage, shrimp and ground beef. Plenty of pasta in my pantry. Just no inspiration.
Does this happen to you? How do you overcome it? I know meal planning helps us manage our time and money better, as well as eat healthier. It matters in our lives, so I do it. But some days. . .it's like pulling teeth, and THIS is one of those days.
So let's think this through together, and come up with a tentative plan:
Monday - Chicken Cutlets, Mashed Potatoes & Peas
Tuesday - Italian Sausage with Bow Ties
Wednesday - Pork Tenderloin, Julianne Potatoes & Green Beans
Thursday - Quick and early kid dinner - going to the circus.
Friday - Pizza Night
Saturday - Trip to my parent's house
Sunday -TBD/Leftover Buffet
So there you have it. . .a plan. . .subject to changes and needing a few ingredients along the way. But it's a plan. What's are you having at your house?
