As I’m being more diligent about this meal planning thing, I’m realizing I don’t need to cook nearly as often as I thought I did. We had leftovers three times this week. And, there are still some in the fridge. This especially happens if David has several lunch meetings in a week or I don’t go to the office. I take leftovers to the office. At home, I’ll eat cereal for lunch.
So, I’m rethinking even now what I’ve planned for this week and think I’ll do leftovers on Sunday night as well. Hmmmmmm….
Monday: Small Group – We’re splitting up – guys and girls – for a few weeks. The guys are going to be at our house so I said I’d cook and leave something for them each week. Easier than someone sending food with their husband with explicit instructions on what to do to set it up once they get here. They guys will be having:
Taco Soup and Brownies
Tuesday: Sloppy Joes – from the freezer – I made them during my Big Cook a couple weeks ago.
Wednesday: Chicken Macaroni Bake – I’ll be using chicken I cooked in the crockpot, chopped, and then froze in 2 cup increments – huge time saver. New to me recipe.
Thursday: Crispy Baked Chicken – New to me recipe.
Saturday: HUGE GARAGE SALE DAY – Pizza for dinner
I’m excited to try the two new recipes. Both of them were found through org.junkie’s Menu Plan Monday. Head over to her site to find lots more menu ideas!
What are you cooking this week?
