I used to be so good about menu planning. Heck, probably half of this blog is menu plans. Everything goes better when I have a menu, because I don’t have to think about what to make every day. I just come home and make dinner, and even if I am a bit tempted to eat out and spend money, I can usually quash that urge pretty quickly when I know what we are going to eat at home. I only plan to make things I like, after all. As a start to my goals for the year, I am getting back to that planning.
My plan is to try to keep it simple, not taking too much time with the plans. I have been known to spend hours on a menu plan, looking through Pinterest, reading old menus, trying to get the absolute best menu possible, as if that is a thing. I am putting a limit of 30 minutes on planning, and realizing that anything homemade is a good meal. This planning is supposed to be saving me time, after all, not taking up my whole weekend.
Sunday: Spanish Cod – I didn’t make this Friday as planned, so I am moving it to today
Tuesday: Broccoli cheese frittata with smoked salmon
Wednesday: Bacon wrapped chicken tenders, green beans sauteed with bacon
Thursday: Buffalo Pork Chops (some plain for the girl), roasted Brussel’s sprouts, sauteed mushrooms
Saturday: Peanut Coconut Curry Chicken
