Meal Planning 2016 - Week 39
Happy Monday - welcome to another weekly meal planning post. If you're a regular, I hope you'll find something to inspire you, and share your own plan for the week to inspire us. If this is your first time, or you haven't gotten into meal planning yet, I hope this post will inspire you to start a weekly meal plan of your own. At the end of the post, there are some links to even more ideas.
Since I'm a pen and paper kind of girl, I added a section to my Bullet Journal weekly layout for my meal plan. Each week, I jot in my ideas, and then I flesh them out for the blog. Sometimes I have a recipe, and sometimes, I only have an idea. Like this week, I have Roasted Chicken on my meal plan. I'm going to use a pre-marinated Lemon Chicken from Trader Joe's. It's a split whole chicken and takes about an hour to roast up. But you could use ANY roasted chicken recipe you like.
Years ago, a women's magazine (it may have been Women's Day or Family Circle) would publish a monthly meal plan. Some days would just have an idea, and others would have more details like cooking instructions or a recipe. That's the same plan I follow here, and encourage you to share all your hits (and even your misses so we can learn) with the rest of us. Meal planning doesn't have to be boring or difficult. Let's make it fun together!
Here's what we have planned for this week:
Monday - Roasted Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Vegetables
Tuesday - Pork Tenderloin, Broccoli and Rice
Wednesday - Ryan's Birthday means Flank Steak, Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans
Thursday -Linguine with Meatballs
Friday - Homemade Pizza Night
Saturday - Leftover Buffet/YOYO (You're On Your Own)
Sunday - LAX game means Family dinner out
What's for dinner at your house this week? Leave a comment and share your plan for the week. Or better yet, join us over on Facebook to talk all things meal planning.
