Meal Planning Made EASY

Meal planning is something I have never been particularly good with.  I plan it out, it doesn't stick.

A few weeks ago I read an awesome series on meal planning from Stephanie @ Somewhat Simple.

She goes through in a five part series how she manages her weekly meal schedule.  THIS is the first part.

VERY inspirational, VERY motivating, and EXTREMELY helpful.

I have taken in her advice and am currently working on separating my recipes into two notebooks just as she does.

I have also made categories for our days to make it easier to plan.  Here are my days and this weeks meals!

Self explanatory, vegetarian or vegan meals.
This week...Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili.

We eat a lot of "italian" dishes.  So tuesdays will be for pastas and Italian dishes.
On the menu for Tuesday... Whole wheat Linguini with Spicy Chicken Meatballs.

New recipe for the week...One Dish Sweet and Sour Chicken.

Thursday's meals will be things that can be quickly done in the evening, or things that can be set in the crock pot in the morning.  I will also add a few freezer meals here and there.
This Thursday...All Day Stew.

This week our Thursday and Friday are going to get down right chilly {I'm soooo excited} so I'm going to make my personal favorite...Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.


  1. I definitely need to work on planning meals. It's nice to have a rubric of what kind of meals to consider!

  2. Oooooh very nice! I love it cause it's so organized!
