My Week in Meals - #3

I repeat a lot of my meals. For the sake of the blog, I wondered if I should try to have no repeats, but that's just not practical. Plus, part of the beauty of this system is that you can repeat a lot. If you haven't noticed, the breakfasts and lunches are basically the same each week and you may have seen some of these dinners on previous weeks. What are you cooking this week?

Erin, you rock! I love that you have solved my, "what's for dinner?" dilemma, thank you, thank you, thank YOU.

I used to hate Mondays. Now I can look forward to your weekly menu. I'm going to steal some of your ideas.

Design Mom said...

Please, please keep the weekly menu coming. You have no idea what a service this is.

wouldn't it be great if we all posted our weekly menus and then there would be a ton to choose from to avoid the repeat.

I love it Erin keep it going!

I already made my own but can't think of how to post it like this (tech?).

Erin, echoing everyone else THANK YOU for posting your weekly menus.... It helps me so i know what night to stop by for dinner.... and i love how the kids get pizza at school every friday. what a nice treat!

You had SPINACH!! I hope it was a frozen one you've had in the freezer for months ....
I do a monthly menu. I have 2 versions (1)Spring & Summer (2)Fall & Winter. Very few repeats, but the whole month repeats. Takes the thinking out of meal prep & shopping. Our big repeat is spaghetti every Monday. Monday is laundry & cleaning, so we need an easy dinner. Plus, Rick hates Spaghetti, so he knows to eat before coming home on Mondays.
