Thursday: H’s second birthday! This kid loves to eat so tentatively we will have pizza and cotton candy for lunch and burgers for dinner! Of course we will have cake too!
Friday: Honestly, NO CLUE!
Saturday: Travel Day!
I’ve had a lot of inquiries as to what I do with my meal planning for the week. I’m not a “meal planner” but I do plan dinners for the week each week, and typically we stick to it unless I realize when I start to make dinner that I don’t have all of the ingredients that I need!
They change every week, and I do my best to keep everyone happy and healthy! Friday nights tend to be our takeout night or our takeout fake-out night.
Here is my dinner plan for the week of 12/16:
Sunday: Crock pot creamy ranch chicken with 2 ingredient biscuits and salad (the recipe is actually much healthier than it sounds)
Monday: Bacon, Garlic Chicken with Spinach served with rice and an additional vegetable
Tuesday: Baked Tilapia with riced cauliflower and homemade broccoli tots
Wednesday: Homemade Mac and Cheese with riced cauliflower mixed in and a side salad
Thursday: Spaghetti with homemade sauce, salad, and bread
Friday: Cheeseburgers with Matt’s famous fries and a veggie
Saturday: Breakfast for dinner
I usually try to make sure I have enough leftovers for Matt to take to lunch the following day and some to freeze for a leftover night or a freezer clear out night!
Please feel free to ask about these recipes and share your ideas too! I love adding to my recipe repertoire!
