Growing up, my mom wasn't a meal planner. She'd just go to the store and buy stuff and decide later what to do with it. Dinner was usually a surprise at our house -- a good surprise though. My mom is a great cook.
I remember going to a friends house and being in absolute astounded awe that their meals were written on the calendar for a month. A MONTH!
I aim to plan meals out for our week based on Brian's work schedule and any activities we have planned.
Here's this past week's menu:
Monday: BBQ pork chops, baked sweet potatoes, veggies
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday (this happens most Tuesdays.)
Wednesday: Egg salad sandwiches, fruit
Thursday: Enchilada soup
Friday: Asian noodles
Can you guess which day Brian worked? Yeah, it was Wednesday -- egg salad day.
We hadeftover hot dog buns from Henry's party (keep in' it real, folks)
I've learned not to plan an involved meal without a baby holder. B is also working tonight -- we foraged and ended up having chicken salad sandwiches and pears.
Oh, I also took a picture of Asian noodles, which is loosely based on this recipe.
It's a family favorite.
I think it might be cool to catalog this from time to time so I'll be better about taking pictures.
