what do you eat each week?
What do you eat each week? I wrote up a little schedule for us a few months ago. It has changed a bit from previous years. Currently for dinner we eat . . .
Monday--some sort of rice based dinner--probably our favorite type of dinner. The photo shows the Sweet Soy Chicken from The Family Flavor. We love this meal. I always stir in some steamed broccoli. Another huge rice-based favorite is the Southwest Chicken Salad from Summer Harms. Oh, and another is her Maple-Mustard chicken. (Love her recipes--wish she'd start blogging again).
Tuesday--pizza (this is take out. We have a good pizza place locally).
Wednesday--soup or chili. Love this night!
Thursday--leftovers. If we don't have enough food left over then I whip something up from what we have on hand.
Friday--Mexican! This is also take out from a local restaurant, or we eat there.
Saturday--date night. Ken and I eat out and the kids usually go to my parents' house.
Sunday--"Sunday dinner." Actually, it could be anything--likely it is something I don't have time to make during the week. Tonight we are having chicken pot pie. That sort of thing. Or something special like steak.
I loved this post when I saw it on Cup of Jo. Apparently these weekly rotations are trendy now? The concept of eating the same thing every week used to be the butt of jokes, I think. Personally, I love it because it is a comforting routine for the children and for us too--at it's easy to plan and do.
Do you eat the same thing every week?
