Menu Planning happens the same way in our house almost every single week. After the kids are in bed, my husband and I crash on the couch and watch a movie (or just enjoy the sound of silence) together. He suggests dinner ideas that sound good, and I attach them to days, based on our schedule for the week. Just like that we have a menu plan!
I have veto power, but I find that often the hardest part of creating a menu plan is that initial inspiration. I’m happy to cook if I have a plan. My husband is the exact opposite. So we make a good team, and it starts the week off on the right foot.
Here’s what’s for dinner at my house this week:
Wednesday — Enchiladas Suizas (using leftover chicken), green salads, tortilla chips
Thursday — Chicken Noodle Soup (using leftover chicken), No-Knead Bread, fruit
Friday — Leftovers
Saturday — Dinner Out
Sunday — Breakfast for Dinner — Oatmeal Pancakes, scrambled eggs, fruit
