Weekly Meal Plan 01.09.12

I know I’ve been saying this every time I post a meal plan, but this time I MEAN IT. I am back to meal planning every week. It’s another of my New Years, ahem, goals. Dinner suddenly becomes so stressful when there is no plan in place. My poor husband gets stuck stopping at the store every day to bring home half the components that I decide that I need (bless his heart, he never complains about this) and then we don’t eat until 8:00 PM.

No more. I have to get more disciplined. I am also adding Saturday night to my meal plan because I’m tired of scrounging on the weekends. You’ll notice I’m linking off to a lot of other blogs this week. I’m sick of eating the same 10 meals over and over, so I’m trying some new ones this week!

FRIDAY: Company’s Coming Lasagna (even though there’s no company coming) with a Caesar salad. I make this gluten free by using GF lasagna noodles.

SATURDAY: I’m thinking of trying to adapt this Chicken and Broccoli Casserole into something . . . healthy. You know, with full-fat dairy and a homemade roux in lieu of cream-of-chemical soup. If you have one, let me know so I don’t reinvent the wheel!

I’ll be linking up with Menu Plan Monday.
