Do you meal plan? What's on your list for today, or even for the whole week?

I thought this might be a great way to help those of us who need ideas for what to eat when we are expecting

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

I've been wanting to meal plan, but haven't started yet! I'm interested to see what others are having to eat though!

I admit I am not really meal planning since I am staying with my grandma. I am planning out my lunches each day and trying to make at least 2 dinners a week for my grandparents though.

Todays meal plan is:

Breakfast: Organic honey greek yogurt and coffee (my one cup for the day)
Snack: Pistachios and a string cheese
Lunch: Salad with baby spinach, radishes, chicken, and avocado and a cutie orange.
Snack: Chicken salad on whole wheat crackers
Dinner: Spaghetti

I will have water to drink with everything except dinner and then I will have milk.

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

I don't. I used to meal plan for dinners. I am trying to get back into that. We are so busy with soccer and lax that I need to otherwise we end up eating sandwiches and cereal.

I have found several awesome crockpot meals that are a hit as well as something that can be prepped and frozen, unthawed then put in the crockpot. I haven't don the freezing part yet.

Tonight we will have chicken teriyaki SO SO SO yummy!

We just started and are having beef stew out of the crock pot tonight. Later in the week we are having: chili, nachos, butternut squash soup and homemade pizza. I take leftovers from the night before for lunches at work.

Cautiously expecting a little one sometime in June, and always remembering my 5 little ones that left too soon.

I don't plan too far out, expect our meat dishes since the elk has to be pulled out and aged at least a week prior to eating. Generally on weekdays I only plan out dinners since they are the larger meal I cook.

Today: make blueberry scones for my hubbies breakfast this week.
Dinner tonight: homemade pasta salad, green salad, quinoa pilaf, elk steaks marinated in gravy.

Tuesday: Brown meat in the am and boil most of the day with seasonings. PM: shred meat, add pasta sauce and make pasta. Green salad side dish.

Wed: Elk strew. Whole wheat buttermilk dinner rolls. Green salad. Probably time to make chocolate chip cookies for my hubbies sweet tooth.

Nothing planned beyond this other than a few cuts of elk aging.

Today I wanted a banana smoothie for breakfast, but I forgot to freeze the bananas so I planned...

breakfast: omelets
snack: coffee or tea for me, yogurt for DD2
lunch: strawberry/mango/peach fruit smoothies
snack: grilled tomatoes w/ cheese
supper: DH wants chicken tortilla casserole
snack: DH will probably have something sweet, I think I'm going to have seconds of supper.

I normally make DD1 something hot and fast before school, the rest of us have fruit smoothies for breakfast. Lunch is something like soup, salads, or sandwiches. DH usually picks a gluten-free supper.

Supper tomorrow is grilled chicken salad. The day after is gluten-free mac & cheese casserole or turkey shepard's pie.

I meal plan for dinners. It helps with the "what do you want tonight" "I don't know you pick" type of conversations and really saves money too! I meant to make this weeks menu yesterday and hit the store up today, but haven't....oops.

I don't really plan either. I eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast with a small 4oz glass of OJ and a 4oz glass of milk. I have been doing that for years though, lol.

I have to go to parent teacher conferences tonight for my 9 year old since today is report card day, so it may be a fend for yourself night. I have loads of left overs from superbowl yesterday and lots of sandwich meat for them too. Not sure what I will have yet.
