When I plan, I start with Sunday nights--breakfast for supper. I hate to cook breakfast at breakfast time, plus I'm always so tired on Sunday nights, and breakfast is easy, so that works great for me.
Saturday nights are something "good". This time of year, that tends to be grilled something. But, take-out, fun food like nachos, homemade pizza, etc. That would all be "good".
Sunday lunch is usually soup. This is a very rushed meal for us (coming home from church, and everyone is grumpy and wants a nap), so something that is hot in the crockpot is perfect. The leftovers are our lunches for the week, too.
Friday night is something "good" as well. Hamburgers, tacos, sandwiches, enchiladas, a copy of a restaurant meal, etc.
Then, Mon-Thursday is regular old food. I try to do one "separate" meal a week, one pasta, one rice. Usually one meatless/bean heavy meal. I vary the meats I do. At least one grandma food (fried chicken, meatloaf, pot roast, etc). I try to have one easy/crockpot meal a week, for our busiest day. But, other than trying to have some variety, it really varies week to week.
