Meal Planning: July 29 – August 4

Before I left for Alameda I said I was going to meal plan. I got my Bountiful Baskets stuff on Saturday, and over the remainder of weekend I finished up my shopping. I forgot some stuff from Costco when I went Friday, which worked out to my advantage. Saturday evening Stephanie and I brainstormed meal ideas via Facebook chat.

Sunday 29th – Crockpot Spinach Lasagna
Monday 30th – Crockpot Southwest Chicken
Tuesday 31st – Lentil Soup
Wednesday 1st – Southwest Chicken Burritos (also known as leftovers night)
Thursday 2nd – Beef Stew (I’ll post a recipe for this later in the week since I’m going to use Marmite!)
Friday 3rd – Homemade Pizza
Saturday 4th – Leftovers, or if no leftovers – David can cook, because I’m on strike today! πŸ˜‰

I actually already have the starts of next weeks meal planning going! I have lots of veggies in mt fridge, a pack of tofu, and a 2-pack of roasts from Costco (one is getting cubed for stew). That right there is already 2 meals out of the way. Now the big thing for me is STICKING TO THE MEAL PLAN. Yes, some days it’s just so much easier to stroll into Papa Murphy’s and call it a day. Sometimes I have no issue with that, especially when I have a coupon, but I can’t cave in on the first week of trying to be good. I’ll reserve that for the first week of school when I feel like I’m in over my head. πŸ˜‰
