Dinner Plan #1

Share Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This Pin This

I used to have a lot of time on my hands. I'd wake up. Lounge. Go to work. Come home. Eat. Lounge. Sleep. Start over.

The hardest part now is staying awake during Judah's naptime long enough to make a meal plan for the week. But, as we discussed earlier, mealtimes need to be affordable. And to be affordable, you have to plan. And to plan, you have to sacrifice a nap. Or laundry. Or bathing. Or all three. But I'm doing a public service and am sacrificing it all for the both of us. You're welcome. Now, if you really love this dinner plan, see the list at the very bottom of this post for a combined grocery list {so that you don't have, for example, instructions to buy butter 4 different times}.

Obviously you don't have to use the same meal plan I will. But I've listed the groceries you'll need, so hopefully it'll save some time. Also, I'm a little under the weather, and in his attempt to be super-sweet, Tim brought me medicine in bed.

It was Nyquil.

At 8am.

On a Thursday. When I have to care for JuJu. All day. Who is also sick.

So please try and be forgiving if I stumble through this.

Also, Sunday is the day we eat out, so I didn't include a meal for that day. But if you're a true church-goer, you'll probably hit up Cracker Barrel, Ryan's or some sort of Chinese restaurant. All great choices.

Please take note: All meals are listed with ingredients for 4 people.
