I have zero desire to meal plan today. But, I'm gonna do it anyways. I asked the husband what he felt like this week. His answer, spaghetti, maybe a pizza, tacos. OK. The spaghetti I can do. The pizza I can do. The tacos..lets switch that over to enchiladas. Add in a big dinner salad for another night and throw in another pasta too. I'm a carb head these days, I can't help it.
