I’ve seen this type of post on other blogs and although I haven’t really looked into the original blog that does Meal Plan Monday, I thought I would try this out for myself. In the past I have tried planning meals for 4 weeks at once but it always seemed like something always came up and the meals never happened like I planned. So for me, it’s definitely easier to plan meals on a weekly basis, but I don’t always get around to doing it at the beginning of the week and then I get stuck at dinner-time not knowing what to make or eat for dinner. My goal is to actually plan my weekly meals on Sunday and make a grocery list so I can go shopping on Monday for the week, but since this is my first week doing this, I’m not that on top of it yet. 🙂 I plan to post my meals here on Monday just to keep myself accountable.
So, here are my meals for the week:
Monday – Spaghetti Pizza – this is a recipe that I got from Jer’s mom when we got married. I have never made it and I actually don’t think I’ve ever had it at their house, but I have everything I need to make it and it seems pretty easy, so I’m going to try it out and see how it goes. I’ll let you know!
Wednesday – BBQ Pork in the Crockpot
Thursday – Stuffed Shells – I plan to make these ahead of time and put them in the fridge until ready to bake.
Friday – Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
Saturday – TBD – maybe leftovers or something simple or from the freezer.
Sunday – Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken – I like to make stuff in the crockpot on Sunday so that it is pretty much ready when we get home from church and are starving! 🙂
Okay, so there you have it, my meals for the week. Hopefully everything goes as planned. I’ll have to let you know. If you want to join me in planning and posting meals for the week, I’d love to hear from you!
