When I plan my meals, I not only aim for a variety of proteins, but also carbohydrates. For example, if we have chicken and rice one night, I wouldn't make chicken or rice the next couple of nights. The next night would be beef and potatoes. Then Fish and pasta, or pork and tortillas or bread. Am I crazy? This past week's dinners are a perfect example of my neurotic menu planning:
Saturday: Chicken Sausage Jambalaya (Chicken, Rice)
Sunday: Pot Roast (Beef, Potatoes)
Monday: Salmon, Whole Wheat Couscous, Broccoli (Fish, Pasta?)
Tuesday: Mexican Chicken Casserole (Chicken, Tortillas (Corn))
Wednesday: Egg Foo Yung, Asian Noodle Salad (Vegetarian, Pasta)
Thursday: Italian Turkey Sausage & Pepper Calzones (Turkey, Bread)
I even go as far as to include a variety of cuisines. For example, if we have burritos one night, I wouldn't make tacos the next night because that's 2 nights in a row of Mexican. I told you, I'm a little crazy. Anyone else out there plan their meals like this? No? It's just me?
