I am a meal planner. I generally plan a weeks worth of meals before heading out to the grocery store each week. Sometimes I assign themes to each day, sometimes I go by what we have on hand, what sounds good, or what is on sale. I just do whatever seems to be the simplest method at the time; there is no reason to complicate the process.Whatever your planning method, it saves time, money, and you will have an answer to the dreaded question, "what are we having for dinner?".
I used to list my meal plans here on the blog and then quit. I'm not sure why, really. You may not be interested, and that's okay, but I am one of those people that likes to see what everyone else eats. I'm planning to start taking more pics of the food that we eat so that i can post more pictures and then I'll link to the recipe that I use if there is one. I have a ton of meals that I don't use recipes for, so hopefully in time and can get some of those listed here as well.
The only meals I plan are dinner, with Sunday being the exception. I do plan for lunch and dinner on Sunday. During the week we have breakfast staples for breakfast, and then sandwiches, salads, and leftovers for lunch.
I pin a lot of recipes on my Let's Eat Board on Pinterest when I am browsing, and have a special board for all of the recipes that have turned into family favorites.
Sunday Lunch -Sub Sandwiches
Dinner - Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwiches
Monday - Aussie Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and Roasted Squash
Tuesday - Spaghetti and Garlic Bread
Wednesday - N/A we'll be eating at church
Thursday - Chicken Fried Rice, Egg Rolls
Friday - French Bread Pizza
Saturday - Fajita Quesadillas and Mexi Rice
Do you have a specific formula for planning your meals each week?
