Seems to me that the last meal plan I made was at the very end of August, which included the first few days of September.
I didn't make a meal plan for the week starting September 5, because neighbor S brought me a feast and there were leftovers from that and other leftovers that I already had in the fridge. The following week, S brought me pastries and lentils and there were still more leftovers! Once again, I didn't need to make a meal plan! They were augmented with cooked food from the freezer (chicken curry I had cooked and frozen, frozen gyoza/potstickers and hamburger patties I had bought, pizza I had baked and frozen, etc.) and a pot of chicken and vegetable soup I had made (I added the last of the lentils S had given me to the soup and it was delicious!). I certainly didn't go hungry!
So, here I am, on a Wednesday afternoon, trying to decide if I should make a meal plan for the rest of this week or not! I suppose I should, if only to take things out from the freezer in advance to thaw!
On Monday, I had chicken curry and rice for an early breakfast after staying up all night; followed by the last of the soup for lunch, and the last of the gyoza/potstickers (there were only four left in the bag) for dinner, with apple slices and peanut butter.
On Tuesday, I had a hamburger patty (no bun or bread) with a side salad and corn for brunch; chicken curry and tortillas for dinner, grapes and an apple.
Brunch: Scrambled egg, bacon, and toasted homemade bread (from the freezer)
Dinner: Salad, sauteed chicken drumsticks (from the freezer)
Brunch: Salad (I need to finish the lettuce before it spoils)
Dinner: Chicken drumsticks, stir fried vegetables, rice or noodles
Brunch: Toasted homemade bread and cheese
Dinner: Spaghetti with ground turkey sauce
Brunch: Pancakes or waffles with peach sauce
Dinner: Leftover spaghetti and ground turkey sauce
Brunch: Leftover pancakes or waffles
Dinner: Rice and curries (fish curry, dhal, moringa, etc.)
This meal plan is based on what I have on hand. It might change if I decide to put in an order for groceries this week and when I pick it up. I haven't done any grocery shopping, yet, this month, and chicken is on sale for $.99/lb. this week, plus I need more bread and a few other items.
How is your meal planning coming along?
