I am going to do a quick link up with Nell and her new meal plan sharing link up, and share our meal plan for the week.
I plan Saturday through Friday, and always shop Saturday mornings.
Saturday: My awesom MIL is making it easy with my husband being away at a conference, and came to help with the girls and is taking us out for dinner tonight. The kids choice is Culver's. We normally do eating out once a month or so, so this is a big deal.
Sunday: We are going to a Confirmation party for a cousin in Wisconsin... I really have it easy this weekend!
Monday: Chicken Kiev (from Joy of Cooking 75th anniversary edition, using dill instead of parsley), Dill mashed potatoes, and roasted green beans.
Tuesday: Spaghetti Carbonara (mmmm...bacon). I use the Joy of Cooking recipe, but since my brother is visiting, I am going to look into trying some of the tips from America's Test Kitchen. And some veggie, whatever we are in the mood for.
Wednesday: Garden vegetable soup and french bread. The link it not to my exact recipe, but a similar one.
Thursday: Pot roast in the crock pot, potato "risotto" (when M gets an endowed chair I will start making the beef tenderloin that goes with this recipe), and some veggie.
Friday: Pizza at the All Saints day party at church! Easy peasy!
This is a strange meal planning week because we have three nights not eating at home, but next week there will be more serious planning.
Also, if you have any meal ideas, I know Nell would love some help!
