Last week was a complete disaster in terms of the meal plan, though we did start strong with the enchiladas from the Oh She Glows Cookbook. They were a hit with the whole family, and we had lunches taken care of for a few days too. Other than that, we didn’t really make anything on the list other than the steaks yesterday. Tomorrow’s post might give you more insight as to why my plans sometimes completely dissolve.
The good thing is that every week there’s another chance to do it again. The other good thing is that I’ve been lucky enough to be able to do my grocery shopping multiple times a week as needed, so we’re not completely wasting food as it falls off our meal plan. I absolutely hate wasting food, and I had to put our CSA on hiatus while I work out some stuff in order to allow us to eat everything we would get in a share. Since creating content for my editorial calendar doesn’t always line up with the current produce that is out there, and because we often eat my recipes for dinner, the CSA share was always getting pushed aside. I’ve yet to find the perfect balance of planning ahead and following through, but we’re working on it.
Also, can we just talk for a sec about how the stores are brimming with back-to-school supplies and the big kid is begging to get his list taken care of already? I’m not ready to be signing papers every night and homework time and making sure lunch is healthy but also good and most importantly, eaten. At least he’s excited for it.
Anyway, here’s what we’re eating this week.
Monday: Veggie Chili (I said this was from Vibrant Food last week, but it’s actually from River Cottage Veg.)
Wednesday: Vegetable Fried Rice
Thursday: Chicken something
Friday: Homemade pizza
Saturday: Campfire packets and s’mores
Sunday: Breakfast for dinner
What are you making this week?
