So rather than desperately text my husband at 4:45 asking him to pick up frozen pizza on his way home from work, how about I get back on the meal planning train? Nell even has a link-up to help me get my rear in gear!
I'm trying to keep stocking the freezer while I make dinners for us this week, so lots of these meals will be made in double & triple batches to help make things easier once the baby's born.
Today (Saturday): Pioneer Woman's Pot Roast, green beans, roasted potatoes
Sunday: Penne w/tomato cream sauce, meatballs (double batch, freeze extras), broccoli
Monday: Creamy chicken taquitos (double batch, freeze extras), beans (make a big batch and freeze half) & rice
Tuesday: Bacon mac 'n cheese with leftover green beans
Wednesday: Pizza night!
|Although not grilled like this pizza - not quite warm enough for that anymore!|
Friday: Lentil soup with this bread
Do you do meatless Fridays? Even if you're not Catholic, adding one meatless meal a week is a great way to save money - I've got 25 meatless meal ideas here if you need inspiration :)
And there we go! Let's hope this can keep me on track this week - I sure hope so!
Go check out Nell's meal plan and others for some inspiration!
