Last week went so well! I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy having the menu plan. There were two nights last week I was really tired and just didn’t want to cook. But I did because a) I knew what I’d be making b) I knew we had all the ingredients for it and c) the stuff would rot in the fridge if I didn’t make it.
Overall, I declare week one to be a success. We didn’t have to make any additional trips to the market. I cooked at home every single day. A couple of the meals were winners and they’ll be put into our monthly rotation. I did have one side dish that was a colossal failure. Bleh. At least it wasn’t the main.
I’ll post the recipes that work out here. I want to have them in a place where I can keep track of them.
Here’s week 2:
- Mon – taco night!
- Tue – bbq chicken sandwiches, no mayo coleslaw
- Wed – pepper steak, egg noodles, salad
- Thu – chili honey chicken thighs, rice & peas, salad
- Fri – chicken parm, broccoli, salad
- Sat – taco salad
Yeah, there is a lot of meat. J is a meat-eater and if I don’t serve meat at dinner, he will eat through my pantry like a goat.
