Meal Planning Week 6, 7 and 8!

Since I never did a “How It Went” post for week 6 – here it is …. along with my Week 7 &  upcoming Week 8.

Week #6 Sunday: Eggs, bacon and toast! Monday: Mexican Bake.Tuesday: Chicken Parmesan and pasta.Wednesday: Olive Garden Soup  Thursday: Mini-Pizza’s Friday: Breakfast for dinner – pancakes and fruit. Saturday: Was Hilary’s family party so we ate there and snacked once we got home. The week was bang-on.

Week #7: I didn’t meal plan! Whoops! Now, this didn’t happen intentionally but I just didn’t do it and felt fine about not planning out the week. Sai was home so most nights he made his own meal and I took something out of the freezer! Yes, I STILL have food in there to it…way too much.

Week #8 (upcoming): 

Sunday: Salmon, mashed potatoes, carrots, peas and corn.

Monday: Grilled Cheese as per request by Lilly. I’m not feeling the Grilled Cheese so I’m going to have Russian Chicken (I gotta empty the freezer).

Tuesday (Christmas Eve): Vegan Waffles for the girls as they are going to eat early (5 pm) and then we can have them for breakfast Christmas morning! Sai and I are going to eat later 7:30 pm – maybe Chili from last week and some vegan appetizers.

Wednesday: Christmas Dinner – Turkey (something vegan for Sai), veggies galore and if we are lucky, pie for desert…I have no clue when I’m going to pull all this together but we’ll see!

Thursday: Leftovers!

Friday: Pork chops and Salad. Sounds boring…hummmmmm, maybe beans, rice, sweet potatoes in a wrap.

Saturday: unplanned and will go with the flow today :)

That’s my plan but I’m feeling this week I might change it up last-minute, we’ll see. The good things is that I have a plan and don’t have to come up with a meal.

Do you grocery shop with meals in mind or just what food you think you need?

What’s the best / worst day to do your grocery shopping? 

Do you bring your kids or go solo ? {It’s so much easier without my girls}

  1. I like to meal plan on a Thursday and then shop on Friday or Saturday… mostly because I don’t really have a choice around work. I don’t have kids but I can imagine it would be tough to shop with them. I do go with my husband though. We don’t have a car so we have to carry it all home. It’s taken us time to learn to shop together though. He is really fussy about packing the trolley and the bags and I just chuck everything in. I’ve learned to let him push and I just hand him things.
