Amidst the chaos, adjustments, and hectic schedule here at home, I find myself introducing a new category here on the blog! Hello, Weekly Menu Plan!
Yup, I knew it was bound to happen sometime. I knew I’m gonna be needing a Weekly Menu Plan to follow and serve as my guide in order to organize the meals, office lunch, and school lunch I make here at home. I’m not good at meal planning. I’ve tried it once upon a time but my cravings got the best of me and I threw the meal plan out the window. But with peanutbutter♥ going back to work this week, I realized I didn’t have the liberty for a quick run to the grocery or the wet market every time. Everything has to be in by Sunday.
This week is considered as my dry run. If you look at my weekly menu plan above, you’ll find out that you can poke holes in it and play bingo… LOL!
Kidding aside, I think meal planning is an excellent way to make sure your family is eating wholesome, nutritious food. It can also be a way to stay on budget and stretch away your hard-earned pesosesoses!
Here are some of the meals we had this week…
Sweet Style Spaghetti with Knorr Pork Broth Cubes
Chicken, Broccoli, and Mushroom Stir Fry
And this is my Weekly Menu Plan #1 for October 10- 16!
Good Luck to me, and I hope I get to follow my meal plan… There are still some holes in it but I’m hoping it gets filled up as we will be adjusting to a new schedule next next week.
Do you mommies and daddies make a weekly meal plan too?
Please share some tips for a newbie like me in the comment section..
Must try the Pininyahang Adobo .. Drooling! 😉
I’ve been trying to do a weekly meal planning myself but like you, impulsiveness gets in the way. But what I do is get meat, fish and veggies that is good for a week then we cook whatever we can think of from what we bought during the week. My son’s nanny cooks during the weekdays and I get to try cooking on weekends. So far, it’s been working budget wise. ???? Hoping to be able to do weekly meal plans soon as well. Will be following this to get meal ideas though ????
Al of those look so good. I think I need to follow this for the week, too. I LOVE foods like these.
Ooh these look amazing! I have to plan our meals or I end up failing mid-week. We usually keep some favorites in the rotation (Taco Tuesday, Pizza Friday). I like to do leftovers for lunch, so I start by planning dinners first, then go from there.
That’s a great idea! Thanks!
These recipes are fantastic! I wanted to try the Pininyahang Adobo, it really look tasty!
These are great recipes to switch up my normal weekly meal plan. I am always wanting add something new and this is perfect!
Wow these all look incredible. I need to work on my weekly meal plan again, I havent made one in a while and always found it to be easier and more beneficial! We could use some new eats!
Ohhh the chicken broccoli and mushroom stirfry are right up my alley!
