I am a meal planner. I generally plan a weeks worth of meals before heading out to the grocery store each week. I have no structure to how I plan Monday - Wednesday meals. Sometimes I assign themes, sometimes I go by what we have on hand, what sounds good, or what is on sale. We almost always have leftovers on Thursday and something easy on Friday that we can eat picnic style for our family movie night.
It is so much easier to make a quick plan, head to the store ONCE, and then be prepared for the week. It saves time and money.
Monday - Perfect Pot Roast, Rice and Gravy, Veggies - I have made this so many times. It really is the best pot roast.
Tuesday - Tacos, Spanish Rice, and Chips & Salsa - Anytime I ask Cade what he wants for dinner he picks tacos. Always.
Wednesday - Dinner at Church
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Pot Roast Patty Melts (using more leftover roast), Mac and Cheese
