It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve made a meal plan. Now that there are kiddos to feed, it’s more than necessary. For the most part, we have been making and sticking to meal plans since we’ve moved in and it has made the kids’ visits so much smoother.
Before the boyfriend left for work this afternoon, I asked him what he thought I should make and he said: Same as last week? I laughed a little. Last week was chili and cornbread, meatloaf and scalloped potatoes, sandwiches, and teriyaki chicken and potstickers. The chili was frozen from a batch made last month, and it’s gone now, so that’s out. I will make the meatloaf again, but change it up somehow. I could even make meatballs instead and it would basically be the same thing. The teriyaki chicken is such an easy meal that the kids love. We’ve talked about adding veggies to it and I’m thinking that will be enough variation on that theme to keep me happy for the week. So, here it is:
1. Teriyaki chicken with celery and sugar snap peas (and potstickers)
2. Meatloaf, some sort of potatoes, and some sort of vegetable (last week I made gingered carrots.)
3. Breakfast for dinner: pancakes, eggs, and sausage
4. Homemade pizza?
