For those who don't know me well, let me tell you I LOVE menu planning. I love it so much, that sometimes I'll write meal plans up for three or four weeks in advance. I also really enjoy cooking, so needless to say I have a fair amount of people that ask me what I'm making for dinner. Which is why I have decided to post weekly meal plans on my blog. Now... I probably won't do this every week, but I'll do it when I can (no pressure)!
I hope I can give you a few ideas, and maybe a little inspiration.
This is what I have made, and will be making this week:
Monday-we were traveling so we ate out
Tuesday-Homemade chicken pot pie, green salad
Wednesday-baked basa(this is a white fish)with grilled
onions with a balsamic and honey glaze, roasted cauliflower,
green salad with tomatoes, olives and avocados
Thursday-olive garden's pasta e fagioli soup and garlic
Friday- OUT! It's my birthday
Saturday-homemade pesto, tomato pizza (I make dough in my bread-maker)with grilled onions and mushroom,
homemade humous w/pita chips
Sunday-pasta carbonara, salad
You'll notice as you start looking at my meal plans that we have at least a couple vegetarian nights per week. Also when meal planning I keep a few things in mind, not necessarily in this order.
Nutrition, ease of preparation, will my kids eat it or some version of it?, cost, and last but not least taste.
