Meal Planning 101

Ok, a new year calls for better organization and planning.  I’ve been working on this project half-heartedly since my youngest was born (he turns 3 in February!)  I am finally going to take my meal plan from the planning stages and put it to work:

  1. gather meal ideas and recipes that we enjoy the most together in one place
  2. draft the week of meals for Monday – Friday
  3. vary the dishes by type and taste while factoring in activities and events during the week
  4. write a grocery list
  5. go shopping and start cooking

This week we are having: 

Sunday:  Olive & Tomato Baked Chicken Breasts with Steamed Vegetables

Monday:  Thai Caramelised Pork Salad

Tuesday:  Grilled Fish Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Sour Cream

Wednesday:  Classic Lasagna with Green Salad

Thursday:  Classic Meatloaf with Steamed Vegetables (I’ve never made meatloaf before!!)

Friday: Thai Yellow Curry with Shrimp and Scallops over Jasmine Rice

I’ll let you know how it goes and post the recipes, too!
