Meal Planning at its Worst

If you tread through the internet, you will find a plethora of meal planning ideas and calendars. Families have planned out everything they want to eat from breakfast, to lunch to dinner. Some have gone as far as to predict when certain foods go on sale so that they can cut the costs of their meals.

The natural planning side of me has tried to jump on the bandwagon but I think my taste buds are stronger than me. The most I plan out is the week: Mon-Fri. I check the weather and the week's schedule and plan according to my freezer and the grocer's sales sections. I don't think it's a winning combination because I'm shopping every week and I often change how the meal turns out. This week our menu was:

Breakfast
Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Homemade Apple Sauce with bacon and eggs
Apple Dutch Pancake

Lunch
Chicken Wings and Quinoa
Quesadilla
Left Overs

Dinner
GF Corn Chowder with ham
Cauliflower Rice Pizza
Steak and Onions with veggies
Beef and Cheese Quesadilla 

Dessert
Apple Crumble

Now onto the changes! I didn't make the apple cinnamon muffins. I might try again next week. I also ran to the grocery store on Thursday to get the steak because I didn't buy it last weekend. I am going to try my best to plan all the meals for October. I will post it here. Wish me luck!
