37

And the countdown begins. Only 37 more weeks until that glorious graduation day for my sweet husband. We're working hard to make this final year's balancing act an enjoyable one.

So I'm gearing up my meal planning in an effort to keep the peace around here. And the plan goes a little something like this:

Basket on the left = Six food categories

Basket on the right = Six preparation methods

Select one item from the right, one from the left. This is Sunday night's dinner.

Repeat six nights in a row.

Seventh night, take a break and eat leftovers or eat out if there's money left.


The categories are this:

FOOD
Chicken
Lentils
Beans & rice
Beef/Pork
Fish
Squash

PREPARATION
Crock-pot
Soup
Bake
Grill
15-minute stove top
Raw


The meal plan actualized looks a little something like this:

Sunday - bbq chicken/ potato salad
Monday - beans and rice
Tuesday - taco nachos/ refried beans
Wednesday - salmon over garlic quinoa/ salad
Thursday - spinach salad with strawberries and glazed walnuts
Friday - white bean and black olive soup/ salad
Saturday - leftovers or out-to-eat

Recipes forthcoming.
