I sat down yesterday and planned out the rest of the months worth of meals.
It wasn’t intentional, but once I did the next 2 weeks, I realized that there were only 4 more days left unplanned in the month and they were looking a little lonely and so I just chose 4 more meals, threw them in there and TA DA! I don’t have to think about meal planning until May! Yah! That’s one less thing in my brain that’s rattling around taking up space and energy.
This last week of meals got shifted around a bit, but that’s one of the nice things about meal planning is that based on time or necessity, you can be flexible with your meal plans and move or change things up a bit, BUT….if you need to, you can just stick with the already laid out plan and not have to do ANY thinking.
I had a bit of a harder time coming up with these next couple of weeks of meals, and I think that has more to do with me feeling a bit tired, but I’m also feeling a bit icky and that doesn’t exactly lead to WANTING to eat and plan meals.
We need to pick up a few things from the store to make this week work, and also to stock up on kids lunch type thingys. But I do have all we’ll need for meat and so this weeks shop should be not too expensive.
Here are the plans for this weeks menu:
Monday: Bar-B-Qued Steak & Potatoes and veggies (We had homemade soup on Sat as it was quick and easy)
Tuesday: Veggie Stirfry with Pecans over rice
Wednesday: Roast Chicken, Potatoes, and Veggies
Thursday: Almond Chicken with Rice
Saturday: Spaghetti & Salad with Garlic bread
Sunday: Lunch out with Family & Friends
Monday: Fish & Rice with Veggies
This is quite a busy (schedule wise) week and so I’m hoping that everything works out well this week.
As always, I continue to look for new recipe’s that are quick and easy to make, so let me know if you have any family favorites.
