Meal planning

I want to meal plan, I would love to meal plan. It is just difficult when the list of things that can be cooked is so incredibly short.

Or maybe I should say the stuff that I know we can cook and like. I don't have a list of quick and simple throw-togethers that I can quickly and easily make. My old standbys were spaghetti or mac & cheese - both are on the no-no list.

I am also trying to cook with less tomatoes. Awful, I know. I just got to thinking about how I crave pasta and tend to put tomatoes on everything and wondering if I have an intolerance to tomatoes.

So that has got me wondering, if you don't have gravy and don't use tomatoes, what else is there? Seriously. I have no ideas.

Tonight I cooked little steaks (top round maybe, I forget) cut them in thin slices and then cooked them some more with onions and cranberries because I couldn't think of anything else. Luckily it wasn't that bad but my kids really hate the nights mommy throws random stuff into dinner. Hubby isn't too fond of it either.

I did also make the wonder bun and that turned out pretty well. It was so nice to have bread with dinner and it didn't taste corn bready. Like real wheat based bread. I am definitely going to play with that recipe some more.

But I still don't know what to do for meals. And there are 3 of them a day. Any ideas?
