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)
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:
Yam hash with West Virginia Chili and a egg. I will post the recipe for West Virginia Chili this week because everyone should try it!
