New Year means Meal Planning!

I even made myself a fancy binder, got myself a wipeoff board, and armed myself with some new recipes to try. We are going to smash this year out of the park!

I used this template to create a plan so I can cross stuff out we don't like and circle stuff we do and hopefully reuse weeks when I'm lazy and don't meal plan.

Shawn doensn't like most vegetables so where there is a veggie he doesn't like, I'm going to insert Salad, because he doesn't mind repeats.

Here's our first meal-plan of the new year:
Breakfast-Multi colored pepper and spinach frittata
Lunch-Fajita Chicken Salad
Dinner-Chinese BBQ Pork and cabbage and "noodles" (zucchini-making this one up we'll see how it goes)

Breakfast-same as Monday
Dinner-Lettuce Wraps

Breakfast-a new frittata of undetermined origin
Lunch-Salad of some sort
Dinner-Hot plate from Well Fed

Breakfast-frittata again we love our frittatas
Lunch-Leftovers from hot plate..possibly on lettuce as a salad
Dinner-"Spaghetti" with Roasted Marinara

Lunch-Leftover Spaghetti
Dinner-Chicken Fried Cauliflower "rice"

Breakfast-Eggs and Bacon
Lunch-Leftovers-use up whatever is going bad
Dinner-Pizza Chili (will post recipe soon!)

Breakfast: Eggs and sausage?
Lunch-Leftovers-use up!! Shop-Meal plan
Dinner: TBD!

I plan on cooking up most of this on Sunday and seeing how it goes to influence next week's plan.
