I feel like we’re getting in a rut with this meal planning thing. I want to try new recipes, but I have no desire to take the time to actually find and make the new recipes; I’m also getting tired of the same stuff we eat over and over. I’m blaming the little one for the fact that I dread dinner-time lately. She throws such a fit during dinner that it’s not even enjoyable to eat. It’s just a stage (so I’ve read), but…ugh! Where did my awesome little eater go??
With that said, I haven’t had much motivation with actually planning a menu. I still manage to scribble what we come up with on our chalkboard, but that’ll probably happen tomorrow, to be honest. Yesterday I put the menu in my husband’s hands—that’s how much I don’t feel like dealing with it. At least he came up with some good meals, which are basically our old stand-by, easy favorites.
So, with all that said (and sorry for being a Debbie Downer; I’ve just gotta get my groove back in the kitchen), here’s what we’re eating this week:
Sunday: Beef and broccoli and fried rice
Tuesday: spaghetti (squash) and meatballs
Wednesday: buffalo chicken and sweet potato fries
Thursday: grilled fish and grilled veggies
Friday: go out
*Those are all paleo versions. I need to start being more diligent about eating paleo…I’ve been doing it 50/50 lately and that needs to change.
What are you cooking up this week?
