I've been in a kind of dinner rut lately. Nothing really sounds good and usually by the end of the day I'm worn out and don't feel like cooking anyway. And on the occasions I actually do prepare a meal, my picky little eaters won't even touch it so I'm trying to get them to at least try it and of course they won't so it's this big battle and I end up making them something different anyway and by that time my food has gotten cold and it's just all very discouraging. Sigh.
In fact, last night I actually made dessert for dinner -- brownies, cookies, ice cream. Yeah, the kids totally ate it.
But since dessert for dinner isn't really a good option 99% of the time, I figured I need to get back on track with meal planning. I find that if I plan my meals for a week and get everything at the store (that's usually the hard part -- shopping with the kids!) then my dinners seem to go more smoothly. So here's my meal plan for this week.
Guiltless Alfredo over penne pasta w/grilled chicken
Broccoli cheese soup
Thanksgiving dinner at family's
Ranch Chicken pizza
