Meal Planning - 2016 Week 13
Welcome to my weekly meal planning post. Each week I share my intentions for feeding my family for the upcoming week. I take time each Sunday night to get organized and plan out a menu of mostly "real food" items, in an attempt for all of us to eat healthier. In the end, when we follow the plan, we do eat healthier and we save money too. I hope you take away some ideas and inspiration for your own weekly meal plan.
Alrighty, Spring is here, Spring Break is over, Spring Sports have started and I'm feeling like it's time to get back in the groove again. Are you with me? Slumps are nothing new in meal planning. If you follow any other weekly meal plans, then you know that even the most talented and creative planner, falls victim to a slump every once in a while. But spring is a time of renewal, and that includes my meal planning!
Here's what I have planned for this week:
Monday - Tortellini Soup, Salad, Crusty Bread
Tuesday - Easter Leftovers - eat when you can
Wednesday - Grilled Flank Steak, Baked Potatoes, Vegetable
Thursday - Homemade Chicken Fingers (wraps?) and Fruit
Friday - Homemade Pizza Night
Saturday - Family Dinner Out
Sunday - Hot Dogs and Burgers on the Grill
I am looking ahead on the calendar and I believe the next time I don't have at least one LAX event is May 10 . . .any of you with kids in spring activities, can feel my pain. If you work outside the home (or even inside the home), getting dinner on the table each night can be a real challenge. I know it is for me, for sure. But if we share resources and ideas, we can work it together and make it a little easier for ALL of us. Are you in?
If so, share your ideas here or over on my Facebook Page. While you're there, I hope you find something to inspire you as well.
