Menu Plan 10•26•20

 Happy Monday!  Today is feeling like a good day for a fresh start.  Or is that just the weather that Im feeling?  Its been a cool morning after some rain last night.  And tomorrow is supposed to be freezing.  Texas freezing, not like real freezing.  So in the 50.  And rainy.  So I better enjoy the energy I have now, because it will be hard to find it tomorrow.

And while Im at it, I figure I should get my menu up.  Its planned. Ish.  I don't have specific days and meals planned but I know what I have to make.  For the guys only.  Im still working on what I want to make for myself.  Last week I decided that making 2 or 3 meals and prepping them for the week was the best way to make sure I ate it all.  I hate throwing away food.  Even the 30 cent cilantro.  So in order to stop tossing so much at the end of the week, I decided to just make less.  And it seems to be working.  Here is what we have lined up for the guys this week.

Sausage, Rice and Corn

Chicken Burrito Bowl

Zucchini Enchiladas

Teriyaki Turkey Bowls

Lumpia Night

Whats for dinner?

Anyone else have a hard time trying to get some suggestions for weekly meals?  I know it can't just be me.  So this week I decided I was over trying to figure it all out myself.  I went though my pinterest boards, screen shot a few photos and sent them to our family group text.  Everyone picked one thing.  Well, Alex picked 2 and I threw in the 5th meal.  Done!  The boys each picked a bowl.  I guess veggies are easiest to eat when they aren't a stand alone side dish!  And David picked the Zucchini Enchiladas.

I don't usually plan weekend meals.  I have ideas of things to make with what he have lying around.  One of the days is usually a leftover day if we have it.  But I like to use the weekends as a time to clean out the fridge before I make room for the next week.  Or we grab something quick at the store when we are shopping.  Or pizza on the way home if we are really running late.  

Menu Plan Monday

Do you meal plan all week or just the week days?  Whats on your menu this week?
