So...I decided to go with KC's method and let someone else plan because like her I do all the cooking. I think my hormones got the best of me last night as I whined that I was tired of deciding what to make. Hubby's said "well where is your recipe list?" Uh.....recipe list? What the? I do not have a recipe list. I told him to look on Pinterest at my bazillon pins! He said he would. I knew he would "forget" and went to bed. I was blown away this morning when I saw a list written on the back of an envelope that a bill came in ( just like I do,,..LOL). Hubby's writing is much clearer than mine though! A total of 19 dinner recipes! Most off Pinterest but a few like potato soup, quesadillas, margarita pizza are just things I make ( that I eat too) . I know he added the margarita pizza for me since it is my favorite. Most were meat things though which was what I was looking for for him and father n law. I made a new board and put them all on ( he is not familiar enough with Pinterest to do this) then I made a board of dinners for this week.
My new "plan" is to cook 3x a week and 3x leftovers and one night take and bake pizza( with leftovers for 1 lunch) Will see how this works out. Leftovers always used to be for hubby's lunch. Made it easy and I cooked something new every night. That was before father in law moved in though and I need a new system. I think lunches are easier to come up with and the 3 nights a week leftovers will be a welcome break! Hubby of course did not include side dishes ( veggies!) so I will come up with that and taking the easy way out this week and going with salad....Caesar and taco inspired. I can mix up the taco inspired to make it different or just make it more of chopped toppings for the enchiladas. Whatever I need to do to get some veggies in them.
Tonight...baked ziti ( pioneer woman) with Caesar salad
Tuesday..... leftover ziti/salad or take and bake pizza
Wednesday.....whatever is not eaten Tuesday....pizza or ziti
Thursday.......pork enchiladas, salad
Friday.....chile rellenos bake, salad
Sat.....L/O pork enchiladas, salad
Sunday.....L/O child rellenos bake, salad
So this is for hubby and father in law. I will have quinoa, veggies, tofu. Maybe pizza? Salad or humus plate,
