ETA: Well, see, it's already changed and I only put this out there yesterday. My family were clamoring for fajitas and it was perfect grilling weather, so...

I plan out a month in advance, but within a given week, things may shift around depending on moods and if things come up at the last minute. I really enjoy reading everyone's lists. Here is mine for September:

1 Cornflake-crusted chicken, roasted carrots
2 Cottage Pie, irish soda bread
3 Eat Out
4 Chili soup
5 Breakfast casserole hash
6 Grill out ribs, chicken, coleslaw, baked beans, garlic bread
7 Leftovers
8 BBQ Chicken Pizza (homemade with leftover chicken, caramelized onions, roasted corn off the cob, and cilantro)
9 Actually, fajitas and mexican rice
9 Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli with sundried tomato cream sauce, baked polenta with gorgonzola cream sauce (will probably do this tonight, Friday 10th)
10 Salisbury Steak, roasted haricot verts with shallots, homemade rolls
11 Dorowat and rice
12 Roast and Yorkshire Pudding, roasted root veg, and salad
13 Leftovers
14 Chicken Cordon Bleu, roasted apsparagus
15 Mataar Paneer
16 Beef fajitas, rice, refried beans (won't be doing this now... probably salisbury steak instead)
17 Grilled chicken and salmon, noodles, peas and carrots
18 Bday out
19 Grilled filet mignon with béarnaise, roasted broccoli, cole slaw
20 Leftovers
21 Roasted chicken and vegetables
22 Chicken and noodles (if any left)
23 Pea soup and panini
24 Tas kebap and rice, mixed salad
25 Eat out
26 Pancakes and sausage
27 Goulash
28 Leftovers
29 Irish Stew
30 Spaghetti Aglio e olio

We'll see how it pans out.

I'm cooking for a gluten-free diet (me), diabetes & heart disease (dp) and a very picky eater (dd1, age 5.5). So a lot of this gets modified a bit. Also have a 2 mo old so my kitchen time is very limited right now!

This is what I have so far:

Tonight: Fruit salad, green beans, leftover soup
Tomorrow: Calzones, cole slaw
Sat 9/18 - Potluck picnic, bringing quinoa bean salad
Sun 9/19 - Lemon Roasted Beets With Feta - & TBA
Mon 9/20 - Stuffed Peppers -
Tues 9/21 - Turkey burgers, salad
Weds 9/22 - TBA
Thurs 9/23 - Tacos (from freezer)
Fri 9/24 - Potato Leek Gratin - & chicken/apple sausage?

And now I need more inspiration!

Weirdo Mama to amazing Aurelia, age 9 & Ember Roslyn, age 3!
