Menu Plan, Week of 1/7


I have been making some menus in the last several months, but I have not gotten myself together enough to actually post them. I think I am making my menu planning too difficult and I need some kind of theme. Problem is, I don’t like feeling constricted, so the idea of a Monday = chicken, Tuesday = meatless type menu does not appeal, and neither does a Monday = comfort foods, Tuesday = rice, etc. Maybe if I made a list of categories to hit each week, but didn’t assign them to a day, that would help.

Monday: Shrimp and pea risotto, salad

Tuesday: Shredded chicken with honey hot sauce, frozen potato/green bean/mushroom mix

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Chicken and veggie stew

Friday: Pepperoni pizza, salad, baby carrots

Saturday: Lentils and rice with carmelized onion tahini sauce, sauteed veggies and kielbasa

Maybe I am just overthinking menus, and I need to let go of the idea that I will be able to come up with the “perfect” plan. How do you menu plan quickly?

As always, this post will be linked to Menu Plan Monday at–lots more ideas over there!
