Meal planning

I'm trying to rally myself to put a menu together for the week, so here goes. ;-) I'd also like to get a chance to make freezer orange marmalade. I'm feeling guilty again about all of the unpicked fruit on our trees! I was going to make it this morning, but don't have enough pectin. I'll pick that up today & hopefully squeeze in a batch between other activities.

On to the menu!

  • Sunday - baked risotto with whatever scraps I can find in the fridge
  • Monday - tacos
  • Tuesday - Leftover risotto
  • Wednesday - chicken & pasta
  • Thursday - chicken quesadillas
  • Friday - pasta & meatballs
  • Saturday - not sure. We have a soccer tournament about an hour away, so will be dependent on what time we're done
  • Sunday - ditto above. Soccer, soccer, soccer ;)
It's cold & dreary today, and I'm off to the last official game of the season for Sam (not counting the tournament next weekend, of course. I have a to do list the size of my arm, so let's see what I can accomplish!

What about you? What's on your menu for the week?


  1. Oh how I envy your fruit trees!
    I have forgotten how difficult it is to plan meals around everyone's activities (selective memory perhaps!)

    1. It takes a lot of work to coordinate, but one huge thing we did when we moved to California - we never tried to re-establish finding favorite restaurants. I know that sounds crazy, but we had tons of places we liked to go in Seattle. Now we have one kid-friendly restaurant, and we try various date night restaurants. But, we don't live close to restaurants, traffic is terrible, etc. All to say that it's helped us not eat out nearly as much. Otherwise, it would be so tempting with the schedules!
