And here goes 2019!

Saturday: Lemon Rice soup w/ Chicken,  roasted tomato slices
Sunday: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup (using homemade super veggie tomato base)
Monday: GF Penne with pancetta and spinach sauce
Tuesday: Meatball subs (using more of the veggie/tomato sauce) and roasted broccoli
Wed: Waffles and fruit salad for supper (trying a new recipe that hides pureed white beans in waffle batter as neither of my children will touch a bean with a 10 foot pole)
Thursday: Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Bake (using rest of veggie/tomato sauce)
Friday: Pizza NIGHT!

DS asked for a piece of broccoli with his breakfast this morning so I'm starting to be hopeful that we've added a veggie to our "approved" list (which is much shorter than I'd like). And obviously all those carb meals use GF flour, pasta or bread for DS where needed :)

R - Gold flannel hash, eggs
F - Spaghetti squash with meatballs and sauce
Sa - Mapo tofu, rice
Su - Black bean soup, homemade sourdough

Menu for the week (I plan Friday - Thursday):
-Friday - we had chili, cheese bread & salad that we brought to a condo while skiing
-Saturday - got stuck in a snowstorm, unexpectedly ate out
-Sunday - my 12 year old had to prep a four course menu for his cooking final. We had California rolls, Thai chicken salad, General Tso's chicken, rice & tiramisu
-Monday - Salmon & rice
-Tuesday - leftover General Tso's chicken + rice
-Wednesday - chicken fiesta rice (freezer) + guacamole
-Thursday - Any remaining leftovers, or spaghetti & meatballs or chili (freezer)

I need to get prepped for the next two weeks. I'm out of town for two business trips, and things tend to fall apart when I'm gone, dining wise.

Meal planning is my JAM in 2019.  It's an area I've targeted to work on this year.

This week's plan:
Monday-
     Lunch: leftovers from Sunday dinner
     Dinner: Mushroom Stroganoff (which ended up being not terribly good)

Tuesday-
     Lunch: leftover stroganoff
     Dinner: baked ziti and cucumber salad that my mom brought over

Wednesday-
    Lunch: FINALLY the last of the stroganoff
    Dinner: homemade pizza

Thursday-
    Lunch: butternut squash soup (leftover from Sunday) with cheese sandwich
    Dinner: chicken and garbanzo tikka masala with rice

Friday-
    Lunch: leftover chicken masala
    Dinner: I will be the only one to feed, so probably whatever I can scrounge in the fridge - sandwich, fruit, carrot sticks, avocado, etc.

I don't have a plan for the weekends, as I usually grocery shop and meal plan on Saturday and prep stuff on Sunday.
