I'm still on a plan of cooking about 4-5 dinners a week. I don't cook every night and I'm ok with that. Eating well doesn't mean you have to have something hot or something new each night. If you're new to meal planning, set realistic goals and take baby steps.
Here is what we ended up with last week:
Tuesday -- Homemade pizza (I made double the dough and froze half for next time)
That evening, I also cooked a Spaghetti Squash and Butternut Squash. The SS was for meals later in the week, and the BS I mashed and froze in an ice cube tray. I did use it in some homemade soup this week also.
Wednesday -- Turkey Picatta with Artichokes over Spinach Linguine and Spaghetti Squash Noodles (the turkey was already cooked, left over from a cooked turkey breast, and the SS was cooked the night before)
Thursday -- Leftovers
Friday -- Smoothies and Yogurt
Saturday -- Kielbasa with Potatoes and Peppers over Spaghetti Squash Noodles and Rice, Corn on the Cob, and Kale Chips
Sunday -- Leftovers
I also made a batch of Tomato Vegetable soup during the week:
