Meal Plan

Monday, November 4, 2019

The smell of baked goods and beans are a clear sign that we are indeed home. I started cooking for the family a week after we arrived in our new home.

I had a conversation with someone who does not know me well the other day. She asked if I cook dinner every night. It turns out, I cook most of our meals. I only make a list of dinner because the leftovers are enough to give us lunch for the entire week.

I'm a fan of oatmeal for breakfast. I didn't grow up eating oats, but in my early married years I read about the wonderful nutrition packed in them. I have a feeling my kids might not be oatmeal fans when they grow up. The important thing is to at least know what these nutritious foods taste like.

Most weeks, we have a variation of foods such as the following list.

Sunday - Brazilian salpicão • an easy and delicious Brazilian recipe.
Tuesday - Street Tacos • the kids love tacos!
Wednesday - Pizza and salad • I buy it from Aldi. Easy for for a busy night.
Thursday - Crockpot chili and cornbread • We love chili. This recipe is our favorite.
Friday - Spaghetti • I actually haven't tried this specific recipe but I will try it this week.
Saturday - Leftovers • the best part of doing all this cooking is eating leftovers (and sending them to school with the kids for lunch!)

What are you having for dinner this week?
