You know my drill by now!! I have to say that I LOVE this New Year's resolution--I LOVE not spending my drive home from work wondering WHAT I'm going to make for dinner, I LOVE not having to resort to accepting dinner through the driver's side car window (much to the little boys disappointment--HA!) and I love the $$ savings that this creates. I go through the local grocery stores flyer and plan around what's on sale, or pull out of the freezer items that I previously bought on sale. Because I'm cheap (or Kurt will say "frugal" or "thrifty", but cheap works for me!!) Head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie's blog too--I'm telling you, TONS of ideas over there!!
Last week we tried 3 new recipes: 2 were definate hits (one is in the oven right now!). This week I'm falling back on a couple of favorites that I haven't made in a while--in fact, looking back on past posts, I have had VERY few repeats for the entire year, another benefit of meal planning, variety!! I am trying a couple of new things too, I'll let you know what we think =)
Monday: Class, no cooking for me!!
Tuesday: Tara's Chicken Tortellini, crusty bread
Wednesday: Kielbasa and cabbage, mashed potatoes
Thursday: Burgers on buns, fries, baked beans
Friday: Fish fillets, mac & cheese, peas
Saturday: Rosemary roasted pork tenderloin, roasted taters, veggie
Sunday: Incredible chicken breasts, rice, veggie
Just a note: 9 times out of 10 a "new" recipe that I do will come from allrecipes.com, so if I don't get the recipe posted here, chances are you'll find it there!!
