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:
Beans & rice
15-minute stove top
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
