  • I plan my weekly meals like this: Mon is pasta, Tue is a mixed meal (eg..casserole, shepherd's pie, etc.), Wed. is ground meat meal (hamburgers, homemade "hamburger helper", sloppy joes, etc), Thur. is poultry (chicken or turkey), Fri. is fish, Sat. is meatless or leftovers and Sun. is some type of sandwich or pizza.

    Using this as a guide, I can usually find all sorts of creative meals to prepare and by choosing my meals around what's on sale, I can do them cheap, too.

    Hope this is helpful!
