Meal Planning, Simplified

Share this post:

I am not a master chef, my kids are super picky and I am short on time. I have been getting a failing grade on dinner for the last few years but now I have come up with a new plan! I am hoping that by assigning a theme to each night of the week and alternating variety and sides when we get bored I can tackle this meal planning thing once and for all. Check out my plan below:

Monday– Burger Night – Turkey, Beef, Chicken w/ Served with Sweet Potato Fries, Onion Rings, Roasted Potatoes or Roasted Cauliflower

Tuesday – Mexican – Grilled Chicken, Carnitas, Fish, Bean and Cheese, Enchiladas/ Served with Corn and Bean Salad or Chips and Guacamole

Wednesday – Pasta Night – Pesto, Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti and Meatballs/ Served with Snap Pea Cucumber Salad, Rapini, or Roasted Broccolini

Thursday– Wild Card Night (i.e Take Out Sushi, Thai, Chinese etc.)

Friday – Chicken Night – Roasted Chicken, Chicken Milanese, Chicken Strips / Served with Cous Cous, Root Veggies or Orzo

Saturday – Asian Night – Lemon Chicken, Peanut Sauce Noodles, Stir Fry, Potstickers, Chicken Satay / Served with Cucumber Salad or Bok Choy

Sunday – Pizza Bar – Sausage, Goat Cheese, Spinach, Caramelized Onions, Bacon, Grilled Veggies
