Meal Planning Before Breakfast

Leave a comment

Meal Planning is such a necessity in our house.  With 3 growing boys – 4 if you count the man of the house.  And I do.  It seems like food disappears faster than I can chop, prep, and store it.  Meal Planning also helps us keep our food budget in check – or what I call our food budget.  It is really nothing more than a number in my head that I attempt to ball park around when I plan a shopping trip.  The past 2 weeks maybe even 3 have not been well planned.  I can tell this by two things.  1. Looking at our banking I see frequent stops to the grocery stores with small purchases.  2. Too many nights of my husband asking what is for dinner and my response being: “I dunno! What do you want?” – which in turn results in a trip to a store for a small purchase.   UH!  Vicious cycle and I need to get us out of it ASAP.

I have been working on a complete June meal plan, but I still need to get through this next week….

Meal Plan for the rest of this week:

Wednesday: Thai chicken stuffed yams – via PaleOMG.com  ( My husband love this)

Thursday:  Tacos

Friday:  Southwest meatballs with creamy cilantro dipping sauce – via PaleOMG.com

Saturday:  Bacon japalpeno hamburgers w/ yam fries

Sunday:  Chicken-bacon broccoli salad

Man oh Man, does that take a load off my mind just having a plan of action!  I better get showered and off to the store.  Guess my weeds will have have to wait until this afternoon to die!  Oh what is a few more hours…

This mornings breakfast:
