My version of meal planning is to pick 5-6 recipes that I'd like to cook in a week and then play it by ear on which day we eat what. I usually stick to my plan about 60% of the time. Some days whatever I’ve decided on doesn’t sound very good or I realize we’re missing an ingredient that I would swear that we had on hand or the lazies strike and we eat a frozen pizza. I’m hoping that putting my ideas out here for my public audience of one to three readers will help keep me honest and hopefully inspire me to actually follow my plan.
Here's what we ate last week

This week's plan
I've got lofty plans for meals this week:
My husband is craving fried oysters so some oysters I'll get at the grocery store for him to fry. Easy enough! We'll have these with cole slaw and smashed potatoes, and I'll make some fresh focaccia.
We have some kale balls in the freezer calling our name. We'll have these another night with leftover focaccia and a big salad.
It's been a while since we've had yellow curry, so I think I'll whip up this shrimp version. It's so easy that you'll only occasionally think about ordering Thai food... and then decide to make this instead.
I've thought about making these lentil meatballs for a while. Maybe I'll finally get around to it!
