don't you love all the fresh fruits and veggies to eat during the summer?
tastes so yum!
i was getting really tired of cooking every single day and trying to think of different things all 3 of us would eat (sadie is not a picky eater but some meals are just not kid friendly), so i came up with a new plan recently, and it's really working for us...
i made a list of all the dinners that we will all eat and that are pretty quick and easy...then when it's time to plan the week's meals, i just pick from my list and don't have to think about it too much.
i also decided to not cook 6 nights a week like i had been doing. so now i make 4 meals (one big enough for leftovers later in the week), and then we either pick up or go out 2 nights.
and i've become okay with the fact that my meals don't have to be "fancy." honestly, it's just too much effort right now. most evenings i'm so tired by dinnertime that i just want to make something easy and quick, but i still want to provide healthy meals for our family...
so here is my menu plan for this week:
monday- shrimp linguini with spinach and parmesan
tuesday- 4 cheese spaghetti with steamed broccoli
wednesday-mike picks up dinner
thursday- salmon, garlic potatoes, salad
sunday- crispy tacos, chips and guac
not anything way out of the ordinary, but still yummy!
i'm curious, do you cook every night? do you make the same meals or switch it up?
