Every weekend, I make a menu for the upcoming week, and we go grocery shopping (usually at Aldi or Trader Joe’s). The boy is a bit of a picky eater with a very short list of “I will eat” foods, and although I am trying to broaden his horizons…it is VERY slow going. So the recipes I choose for any given day depend on which nights he is in residence (he is at his dad’s part time).
Monday, Thursday, and Sunday are new recipe nights. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday are “tried and true” nights, and Friday is generally pizza night. A lot of my new recipe finds come from Pinterest–the delicious ones move over to the “tried and true” nights.
You can find this week’s plan below. I have added the link to the Pinterest recipes and the source for the cookbook meals. Please feel free to comment suggestions, improvements, links to your favorite meals or even just a simple “yum” 🙂
