Whats for Dinner

So I am a crazy meal planner, on Sunday nights I write down everything we will eat including snacks for the week. It is the only way I can really assure that I am eating good foods. When I don’t have a plan I tend to grab whatever is quickest and easiest. There are 2 Mcdonalds, 2 Burger Kings, and countless pastry shops within a 5 min walk from my house, very dangerous.  I also hate wasting food. Meal planning has really helped me eliminate a lot of food waste. I construct my grocery list from my menu and only buy whats on the list.

Here is what we are eating this week.

Breaskfast: We rotate between Sweet Potato Hash, Veggie Scrambled Eggs and the occasional smoothie.  We eat ALOT of eggs in this house.

Lunch: Leftovers or a Salad (Ryan’s speciality. They are always epic and never get boring)


Sunday:  Steak Rolls, Roasted Asparagus and Red Potatoes

Monday: Pork Tamales

Tuesday: Sausage and Vegtables

Wednesday: Italian Chicken with Zoodles

Thursday: Crockpot Beef Stew

Friday: Bunless Chicken Burgers, Sweet Potato Mash and Roasted Broccoli

Saturday: Meatloaf, Cauliflower Mash and Roasted Carrots


With the exception of the Tamales all these meals are Whole30 approved.

      Hello sissy! First you are a good cook. Second the only way to become more confident is to practice. Start by making one new meal a week if you like it add it to your rotation. Write all the recipes you like and know on notecard and keep them in one place. When its meal planning time just pull notecards out of the pile and make your meal plan for the week. Or just check here every week and copy me.
