Meal Planning 2016 - Week 46
As each weekend rolls around, I have a vision of a lazy Sunday morning spent on the couch with a cup of coffee, Pinterest and cookbooks, planning out our healthy and well-balanced meals for the week. The reality is closer to a desperate scribble of ideas, random shopping and a frantic push to put it all together in a logical sense to share here. I don't want to scare you, but rather let you know that it's not all roses over here.
Weekly menu planning is an integral part of saving me time, energy and money, but it isn't always easy, fun or effortless. Sometimes it's downright messy. But holding myself accountable, by posting each Monday morning, helps me achieve my goal. What helps you achieve your meal planning goals?
We have a lot of moving parts this week, with a mixture of after school activities, meetings for mom and a busy work week for dad, including some potential late nights. With all that in mind, here's what we have planned for this week (but I reserve the right to toss my plan in favor of breakfast for dinner!):
Monday - Homemade Sloppy Joe's and Mac-n-Cheese
Tuesday - Ham, Mashed Potatoes and Peas
Wednesday - Fettuccine with Meatballs and Garlic Bread
Thursday - Chicken Cutlets with leftover Mashed Potatoes and Peas
Friday - Pizza Night
Saturday - Mom's at a Retreat so it's boys' night
Sunday -Family Dinner Out
