I heard of a woman once who was tired of asking her husband what he wanted for dinner and getting the response, "Whatever." "I don't know." "You choose." "Something." So she started making dinners ahead and freezing them labeled "I don't know" et cetera. Then, depending on how he answered, she'd go to the freezer and pull out what he asked for.
I can totally relate to this woman. I'm tired of deciding what to make for dinner or at least coming up with options based off what we have because it looked good while I was at the store.
So what I do now is use a 3 week schedule.
Monday: spaghetti with meat sauce
Tuesday: meatloaf and potato
Thursday: homemade pizza
Friday: soup and sandwich
Monday: pork with fresh veg
Tuesday: chicken breast with squash or sweet potato
Friday: pasta with chicken
Tuesday: sloppy joes
Wednesday: breakfast (choose from: pancakes, waffles, sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits & gravy)
Thursday: baked ziti
Friday: fish fillets with fresh veg
Sides can vary from salad or canned vegetables, couscous, rice, etc.
Lunches, Saturdays and Sunday dinners are leftovers, sandwiches or frozen pizzas. Sundays always have a brunch.
This has made my life sooooo much easier. It also helps to save time and money at the grocery store since I stick to the list, which is no longer ambiguous.
I'm going to start this with the ending and you can read the middle if you want: on Thursday the 11th our first born will be having open...
