Care to share your weekly meal plan for this week?

Do you plan all meals, or just dinner?

I'm trying to get better at this. I used to be good at it, but 3 kids is hindering my desire to go grocery shopping. And cook. Lol

I do it without the sauce (although I have done it with also, but trying to keep the calorie intake down with this pregnancy) and still yummy!  We have it like twice a month.

I usually just plan dinners. I will include breakfasts and lunches if there is something unusual going on - like a special occasion, french toast breakfast for a birthday or father's day, or picnic foods for eating lunch with friends one day - so I have the right things on hand. Otherwise, just dinners. I used to try to do 2 weeks at a time but our produce went bad and we ran out of milk, and I had to go back to the store after a week anyway, so now I just do a week at a time.

This week:

Sunday - crock pot chicken curry, basmati rice, naan

Monday - parmesan crusted tilapia, homegrown green beans & potatoes (ice cream for dessert)

Tuesday - shrimp and (homegrown) tomato & garlic pasta, bread salad (with homegrown tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers)

Wednesday - grilled turkey burgers and chicken breasts

Thursday - roasted veggies, baked penne with mozzarella on top

Friday - we usually get pizza or make homemade pizza on Fridays & have movie night

Saturday - church potluck social, not sure what I'll bring yet (they provide burgers & hot dogs)

I try to plan a week's worth of dinners at a time. Sometimes, like this week, it doesn't work out too well.

Breakfast and lunch are whatever we have on hand.

Sunday I made a Cassoulet that actually fed us for 3 dinners.

Wed - I put a pork roast in the crockpot, so that'll probably turn into carnitas with rice and a veg.

Thu - leftovers.

I still don't have a plan for Fri-Sun. It's not been one of our more stellar weeks.

I am typically a fly by the seat of my pants person for breakfast and lunch.  I meal plan approximately 20 dinners a month and then shop for those ingredients.  I have nothing for this week planned as we have been out of the house alot in the evening and I have been winging it.  I knew this week was going to be bad b/c of our schedule.

I will start to meal plan this weekend for the next 4 weeks.

With the addition of a new food allergy....that we didn't know existed in my youngest, meal planning has become more complicated as I have to scrutinize ALL ingredients and now add a new store to my route (this one isn't even close to home).

 Nope, I should I think it would make things easier but I am the kind of person that wants to be in the mood for the food & not just eat from a list!
