I haven't posted a meal plan in a few weeks. I figured, since I seem to plan the same stuff over and over again, why do I need to plan meals?
But here's some of the costs of not planning:
- Leftovers didn't get used up and ended up being thrown away. What a waste of money!
- Vegetables went bad in the crisper instead of being used for healthy meals.
- My kids asked for certain meals, and since I didn't have specific plans in mind, I made what they asked for. Those meals might not have been as healthy as the ones I would have planned.
- I was really tempted to get takeout. I didn't cave in, but I easily could have.
Here's this week's plan:
Monday - Creamy Garlic Shells with Salmon, Caesar salad
Tuesday - hamburgers, baked tortilla chips, veggie sticks
Wednesday - Cannelini and Feta Casserole, salad
Thursday - Veggie Burritos
Friday - breaded chicken strips, pasta with garlic and oil, salad, challah
Saturday - grilled cheese with tomato soup
Sunday - takeout
