I admit that lately my meal plans have been much less set in stone than they have in weeks past. I’ve been taking them as merely “suggestions” versus what we are absolutely having for dinner and that kind of defeats the whole purpose on why I even bother making a meal plan!
So back to basics it is. Write the darn meal plan, go shopping for any ingredients I don’t have, and then stick to the plan. When I deviate from the plan, then it’s at least $20 that comes out of my pocket on that night when everyone just has to have some pizza or Chipotle or some sticky delicious Chinese takeout.
No more. Here’s this week’s plan – and I’m sticking to it!
Asian Glazed Wings + Sauteed Green Beans
These are pretty spicy so I usually just give my kids the plain ones before I coat it in the sauce.
I feel like I’ve posted this before but we didn’t get a chance to make it. Looking forward to how this comes out!
Chicken salad sandwiches + chips
Pictured above – I’m using store-bought pesto that doesn’t have any pine nuts since both me and my daughter are allergic.
BBQ ribs + potato salad
Saturday + Sunday
The kids will be with their grandparents, which means I ain’t cooking!! Leftovers for me!
