Do you plan your meals out for the night by themes? Like on Monday you eat Italian, Tuesday Mexican, etc. I am thinking it'd be something fun to do, but I'm out of ideas for "themes". Help!

We had Taco Tuesday for about 6 months. Then we got tired of tacos lol... so for now we have Wing Wednesday :) That's pretty much it for us as far as themes

I have a feeling it will get old, but I'm having a hard time coming up with things we haven't eaten recently. I love wings, how do you make yours?

I buy a pack, fry them, freeze them, then defrost and fry them again when we're ready to eat them. Makes them crispier :) As far as sauce, we like Frank's Red Hot and this other BBQ that for the life of me I can't freaking remember lol

As a kid we always used Tiger sauce. I found a bag deal the other night and you just throw wings in the roasting bag, and cook a certain amount of time. They were damn good, but I have got to learn how to cook more things.

DIY Friday- make your own.mini pizzas, subs or pot pies

Those are excellent ideas! We eat pretty much anything. Don't know how a meatless Monday would go. I love meat.

Lol we could never do Meatless Monday. We could probably do Meat Monday though :) We're carnivores. Well not DS, he doesn't like meat.

I was thinking I'd do a specific theme, but different meals, if that makes sense. Like Mexican Monday would be tacos, enchiladas, etc. Never really the same thing back to back. Italian Tuesday would be spaghetti, pizza casserole, alfredo, etc.
