Usually I buy enough meat/fish to last about 2 weeks and then I just decide based on what we want on a certain night.

I try to spread it out so we aren't eating the same things each week. i also try to balance things my 6 yr old likes and doesn't (she is very picky and I won't just cook what she likes because the rest of the family likes other stuff too). I try not to have stuff she doesn't like in a row. I also try to spread out tomato sauce meals because DD #3 is sensitive to too much.

A little of all the above and I also sprinkle in soups once or twice a week this time of year also.  In the summer I sprinkle in salads.

It really comes down to what I feel like cooking. I make a menu to shop from to make sure I have all the items I need to make each meal. Whatever I feel like making through the week I make.

i make what i feel like for the most part, or what someone wants.  i have no set menu, and i don't shop with a menu in mind.  although if i think of a meal i want, i will write it down on my list and everything that goes with it.
