Two things. (1) I recently read an article about how because people watch so many cooking shows these days, we subconsciously think we need to eat restaurant style food every night. And (2) I started using a blank month calendar to meal plan. While it is nothing fancy, I am able to plan better seeing what I already made previous weeks as well as moving meals I never ended up making.
So the basis of this post is to share a week's menu plan. As well as remind myself and others that it is okay to make simple meals. Plus I want to get back on track a little bit with eating healthier at dinner time.
As a general rule, we eat mostly chicken. And we eat homemade pizza and tacos usually once a week. Both of these meals never get old for us and they are fairly easy to prepare.
