This is what I have so far:
Any ideas for the other days? Help!
Am I the only one who does this?
LOL. What does he eat?
My husband would starve.
I tend to make a weekly list that includes at least one chicken dish, one beef or pork dish, one vegetarian dish, one pasta dish and one seafood dish if I can fit it in.
no your not the only one who does this! ive been making menus for the last 30 years! mine are for 2 weeks at a time.
a few ideas
meatloaf w/ bbq sauce on top- mashed potatoes, green beans, salad
chili- corn bread or taco shells- sour cream, cheese, salsa
spheggetti and meatballs or no meatballs- green salad, garlic bread,
chili potatoes w/ toppings: cheese, sour cream, olives, salsa, tomatoes, onions, etc
shepherds pie- green salad, rolls
roasted chicken-mashed potatoes, gravy, veg, bread
grilled chicken breast-can be made into grilled sandwiches, make some fries, or baked beans or potato salad
teriyaki chicken- grilled or ovened or fried-fried rice, chinese salad
stuffed peppers- green salad,
potato soup- rolls
stew- bread or rolls
navaho bread tacos-green salad
lasagna- green salad, garlic bread,
hamb gravy- fried or mashed potatoes, veg, green salad
fajitias- whatevers left in the garden, flour shells, salsa
coconut shrimp- green salad, pineapple fried rice
I actually meal plan for a month...and we are learning to shop 1-2 weeks at a time. My months differ. I have no rhyme or reason to how I plan. I do however let my girls and SO each choose one meal a month that they may want and I fit it in. The usual requests are mac and cheese with hot dogs, my spinach casserole, and the most recent request was for stuffed shells. I do however make 2 crockpot meals a week. We have a friend who has been eating with us recently and is begging for my recipes...hes a man and lives alone. I think its cheaper for him to eat with us once in a while.
