Meal Plan: 9/3 – 9/17

Darcie’s Dishes inspired me to start my own meal plan. I do this already when making my grocery list by creating a list of 14 dinners, a couple of lunches and breakfasts. But never super organized like Monday, Tuesday, etc. I make my meal plans for two weeks because our store is 30 minutes away (just countryside between here and there) and we only have one vehicle at the moment. And I usually do it on Thursdays because my husband usually gets his paycheck on Wednesdays. So we kind of have a start of a system.

This post is mostly for myself so I can have a place where I link to the recipes that I want to use. And I thought it would be helpful to try the everyday-planned approach. Lately, I haven’t had enough dinner leftovers to use for my lunches the next day! So I’m trying to take care of that. These meals are planned to fit with the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle so if the (meal type) confuses you, just ask.

Side note: my husband isn’t usually home for lunch so he just brings a packed lunch of two turkey and cheese sandwiches with an occasional fruit or bag of pickles. So really, the weekday meals are for one person except the dinners and desserts that we share.
