Do You Meal Plan?
I used to meal plan when I had all 6 kids at home, and our friend here for dinner every night. Now that it is just four of us here on a regular basis, and sometimes just three, I don't write out a menu.
Here is an old menu when I'd plan for two weeks at a time!
I buy all the basic things for meals - meat, veggies, rice etc, and I make a lot of my sauces from scratch. I'll often pick up a jar of Tikka Masala from Aldi to make a delicious dinner with chicken, rice and veg.
I was talking with Emma yesterday and she cooks three times a day! I cook two times a day, breakfast and dinner, and lunch is leftovers or sandwiches generally. Also, I still cook for a family, so many times, I only have to cook a few times a week, and we eat the left overs for other meals.
I like healthy food that doesn't take a lot of preparation. I cook mostly from scratch, so often I'm grilling chicken, or cooking grass fed beef to make meals. Some of the things we like to eat I cook seasonally, so the meals vary from season to season.
Some of our favorites are -
Chicken Tortilla Soup, Curries, Fajitas, Grilled Chicken Salad, Sloppy Joe's with baked sweet potato fries, Beef and Rice, Chicken Pot Pie, homemade hamburgers, Baked Chicken, Lazy Lasagna, BLT's.
What are some of your favorite things to cook? Let's share in the comments, okay?
