Successful Meal Planning Templates

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am a planner by nature, but I have a lot of trouble establishing a new routine. I am starting back to work in 3 weeks and I hope it's not too late to get a general meal planning template together. I've been having trouble coming up with something, and I know there's a lot of wisdom out here.

Here's what I thought of:
Saturday: Soup and "putting up" farmer's market foods
Sunday: Roast, cook beans, and lunch/dinner pre-prep for the week
Monday: Mexican flavors (burritos, taco salad...)
Tuesday:
Wednesday: Slow Cooker day
Thursday:
Friday: Pizza night

I fed the freezer with great success last year prior to having a baby, but have been unwilling to heat up the house this summer to cook and do so again, so I think I'll be doing a little of that too.

I'd love any ideas that are catchy. Thanks!

Maybe an Italian (pasta) night? lasagna, pasta w/ sauce, spaghetti, fettucini
Or a rice night? I like making either a veggie/meat stir fry to put over rice if I have a lot of meat/veggies on hand. If I only have a few meat/veggie on hand then I like to put it all together and make fried rice...chicken fried rice with green beans, corn, green onions, carrots, broccoli, whatever I have on hand. It is also easy to throw in an egg or two for extra protein or if you're out of or have very little meat. My family loves this dish and it can be a good way to use up a lot of small amounts of leftover veggies from earlier in the week.
