Meal Plans February 2nd

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
OK here's the next meal planning thread, what are you all going to eat? I'm still working on ours. We ordered a big amount of food from the co-op and I'm waiting to see what all we actually get before planning too much.

Tonight we are planning to have organic steaks and some veggies, maybe sweet potatoes & broccoli. Tomorrow we are having chili with cornbread. Monday will be some sort of chicken dish from the freezer, and that is as far as I've gotten.

So what are you having?

I am game this week...just starting with dinners....

Saturday Pizza
Sunday Potato Soup
Monday Left overs
Tuesday Spagetti and meat sauce with garlic bread
Wednesday left overs
Thursday daddy decideds dinner
Friday souvlaki with pita's

Since there are just 2.5 of us, 1 meal will typically last us 2 nights plus give me some for the freezer. I also have no clue what DH will chose for dinner on thursday, that is my late night, and he is off work so it is all him.

Cutting back on the meat, Lindsay? We are trying to... but I'm using up my freezer stuff so there is still a lot of it in there.

Yeah, my hubby's gone all week for work, and the kids don't care if we have meat, so I'm trying to save some money this week!

I'm just planning super as lunchs are often leftovers or soup and sandwiches. I'm also preparing dinners for an injured friend when he needs so the planning may not stay on track as planned.

3 - leftover spagetti and salad
4 - lemon chicken, sauted suncokes and mushrooms with garlic
5 - fetticcini alfredo with smoked salmon
6 - left overs
7 - squash soup
8 - lasanga

can i play? I am really trying to plan out (and stick to!) a weekly menu. it's hard b/c DH works unpredictable hours and might not be home for dinner any given night (not knowing til the last minute)...But, I really need some kind of a plan in order to save $$ and keep me sane!

monday: leftover chicken gumbo over rice; cornbread
tuesday: calzones; salad
wednesday: roast chicken; baked sweet potato; broccoli
thursday (veg night--cook for vegetarian family members): shrimp & veggie stirfy over rice noodles
friday: chicken pot pie; green beans; bread
saturday: Mephis style stew
sunday: leftovers
post #15 of 18
I have so much food made up right now it's ridiculous!

Green enchiladas
Stuffed peppers
Homemade pizza - different cheeses for the kids, pineapple jalepeno and chicken for DH
I bought some black cod yesterday that I am making tonight but I don't have to do much cooking untill thursday.

DH is set for food till then and the kids and I are doing breakfast tomorrow for dinner, and at my moms on wednesday

Thursday I'm making a roast leg of lamb for gyros and I made the tzatziki yesterday. The kids and everyone will eat that with pita for lunch/snacks too. Friday I will probably wing it with the kids too because DH will still have gyros.

Lately I've been doing a lot of separate cooking. I don't mind and it' s been working. This week is easy because I have so much food already made up. I have been keeping a few meals made up for DH because DD is going through a no food thing, and DS is in to making his own food .

Saturday: spaghetti dinner at church
Sunday: chili bowls
Monday: pasta and salad
Tuesday: soup, salad, and bread
Wednesday: lentil soup and salad
Thursday: peanut butter chicken over rice with veggies
Friday: Lenten meal at church

Kind of a low key week, and I didn't get breakfast or lunch planned this week. But there's leftover and sandwich stuff as well as oatmeal and eggs, so we'll make it.
