Are you a menu planner?? Well you should be! It seriously helps to just take a few minutes a week to sit down and make out a weekly menu! You'll save time and money! And if you ever get in a rut, just hop over to Orgjunkie or Mindful Meals for a few new meal ideas!
We're eating with my parents Monday night so I'm planning 5 meals... and one night of leftovers and/or sandwiches!
Spaghetti w/ Meatballs, Green Salad
BBQ Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Scrambled Eggs, Hash Browns, Fruit
Turkey Burgers, Carrots and Broccoli with Homemade Ranch Dip
Chicken Nachos with fresh Salsa/Guacamole and Black Beans
What, no PIZZA of the week?? Well, we might just have pizza! But I'm kind of over it. Although someone shared with me a great tip that I'll have to share with you some time about homemade pizza!
I'm going to go back to loosely planning breakfast, lunches and snacks. So here goes:
Breakfast- Cereal, Homemade Blueberry Muffins, Blueberry Almond Coffee Cake (I'm using this recipe... but using ww* flour, full fat butter/milk, and unrefined sugar) Scrambled Eggs and Cheese, Fruit
Lunches- PB & J, Grilled Cheese, Cheese and Chicken Quesadillas, Leftovers
Snacks- PB Crackers (not the packaged variety.. just real PB on ww* crackers), Cheese Sticks (not the fried variety.. just cheese, in sticks), fruit (whatever looks yummy), Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Yogurt
*My WW stands for whole wheat.. not weight watchers. ;)
