Meal Plan Sunday is a success!
Before I get into our third Meal Plan Sunday, I just want to thank everyone for the amazing feedback. Some folks emailed me directly and some commented on the post about how helpful it is. However, not all of the messages were complimentary. One of the comments (that I did not allow to be published because this is a shame-free zone) was that I wasn’t including enough fruits and veggies in my meal plan. Honestly, it was a fair assessment but it didn’t account for several things. First of all, I wasn’t including every single thing we were eating for the whole week and for snacks and even every exact thing for dinner. Secondly, Meal Plan Sunday is just my main dish ideas for dinner for the week. I will sometimes include side item ideas or dessert ideas or drink ideas in the meal plan but I wanted this to be a real-world approach to family dinners. Not an idealized version if we lived in a perfect world and had 2 or 3 hours to prepare a from-scratch dinner every night.
No judgement zone here
Do your best. Get those healthy fruits and veggies into as many meals as possible. But I’m not here to beat anyone up (much less myself!) for counting french fries as a veggie win! And I will not apologize for often using bagged salads and microwave steamed veggies (especially if I have a coupon – woot! woot!) Also, I want to thank all those Moms and Dads who reached out and told me they were grateful that I shared those items in the meal plans. My tagline for this website is “Recipes for the busy cook” and I will continue to stand by that tagline and be so thankful to all of you who continue to stop by and regain your mealtime mojo from these simple recipes 🙂 Now – let’s eat!
