Thurs: butter beans, okra, corn, and tomatoes, eggplant (probably very healthily fried), hamburger steak
Fri: out of town! a fave Greek place
Sat: out of town! another favorite place
Sun: grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup with pesto
Mon: chilaquiles topped with chicken, sour cream, onions, and cilantro
Tues: spaghetti with sauce from our tomatoes, salad, bread

I'll share!

Note: Breakfast, we all eat different things. My hubby usually has cereal with fruit, I have fruit only and water, dd has some dairy or cereal and sometimes toast with egg

Friday (yesterday)
Lunch-sliced ham, lentil salad
Dinner-chicken fingers, baked beans, corn on cob (VERY kid-centric meal cuz it was movie night and we always have her favorites)

Saturday (today)
Lunch-sliced ham, breadsticks, apple/celery/walnut salad
Dinner-beef kabobs, coconut rice, glazed baby carrots

Sunday
Lunch-leftover chicken fingers, lentil salad leftovers
Dinner-chicken pot pie with any leftover chicken (add in celery, mushrooms and any veggis left in bin)

Monday
Lunch-avocado/walnut salad, ham if there's any left (if not, ???)
Dinner-stir fry with leftover kabobs, Chinese noodles with sprouts

Tuesday
Lunch-orzo, chickpeas and feta, grilled celery
Dinner-leftover pot pie

Wednesday
Lunch-any leftovers, clean out fridge LOL
Dinner-tacos with steak mince, beans, spanish rice, avocado

Thursday
Lunch-white bean and dill salad, sauteed mushrooms, cheese puffs (gougeres, if you wanna be fancy about it)
Dinner-out on Date, pizza for DD and sitter

Friday
Lunch-nachos with leftover taco stuff
Dinner-chicken wings, couscous, carrot salad with apple (Movie night!Will set aside raw carrot for DD before I mix the rest to make salad. I'll also make some brownies)

Saturday
Lunch-??? possibly mix leftover carrot salad with leftover couscous and add some beans?
Dinner-lamb meatballs, papardelle, grilled zucchini

Sunday
Lunch-out for Chinese
Dinner-grilled celery and mushrooms, avocado salad, lemon risotto

As you can see, in this weather, we are eating lots of bean salads. My daughter doesn't like beans mixed with all the other stuff, so I give her plain beans before I make the salad for me and DH. Easy!

Thank you!

Nope, no freezer cooking. I really should have! We have been eating an atrocious amount of junk since mid-July. Oh, well. I think I'm getting back into the swing of things as far as cooking & meal planning go.

Hi Ladies,

I am soooo "meal planning impaired" it's shameful!

I love all of your meal ideas.

A question for all of you.....do you have a set day that you do your meal planning,followed by a certain day that you shop? And is your family involved in the process, or do you just do it yourself?

A question for Darbi- I noticed that you included doing,"Tasks" as part of your meal planning. I love that! Is that an idea of your own, or did you get the idea from a cookbook/home organizer book?

Thanks for letting me pick your brains!

I plan meals on Sunday, shop on Monday. I do have a "Dad's Choice" night and on that night I ask DH what he'd like on the menu. That's really about as much as he is involved in any of it, and my DS is too little. I also have a spot on my meal planning sheet for tasks. If I dont, I forget to soak the beans or defrost the chicken!

I usually try to plan on Thursday & then hit the Farmers Market & Trader Joes on Friday. It isn't the most ideal way since we are gone alot on weekends, but I like the Friday farmers market. If I had my way I'd plan over the weekend & shop Monday.

Dh is generally not involved because if I ask him what he want I am ALWAYS met with a very frustrating "I don't know" or "I haven't thought about it" But that is another rant for another day I guess
