For the last two weeks, I have gotten off track with my meal planning. We’ve just been so busy!
Busy times are when I should be making SURE to get my meal plan done though, otherwise, what happens?
You guessed it. Fast food, convenience food, or hastily slapped together meals that don’t go over very well.
If I am struggling with my own meal planning, maybe a few of you are as well, so I figured, in the interest of being helpful, that I would go ahead and post my meal plan for the next week, with links to recipes when I have them.
Ryan and I are going on a date on Tuesday, so the babysitter will be fixing convenience food, otherwise, I think I have a solid plan here!
Monday-Crockpot Pot Roast, Dinner rolls, Mixed veggies, Salad
Tuesday– Chicken Nuggets, Tater tots, Salad
Wednesday– Pasta and Meat Sauce, Salad, Garlic bread
Thursday– Instant Pot Teriyaki Chicken, broccoli, rice
Friday– BBQ Chicken Pizza, salad, fruit
Saturday– Grilled boneless skinless thighs, Roasted potatoes, Salad, Rolls
Sunday– Taco Lentils and Rice, Tortilla Chips, Salad
The most important thing to remember when you are meal planning is to keep it simple. You can have the most amazing looking plan, but if it’s not practical, it’s not going to happen, and you just wasted five minutes.
Instead, pick simple meals, and add something extra to it if you end up with extra time that evening!
