Menu Planning Monday - The Slightly Different Way To Plan This Week Edition
Alright, I am doing something completely different for my menu planning this week - I'm not menu planning. No, I haven't lost my mind (weelll...) but I really didn't stick to last week's plan - in fact we had quesadillas twice last week for dinner - so this week, I'm basically closing my eyes, opening a cookbook, and taking some inspiration from whatever I land on each morning. We need some serious new recipe blood around here! I'm going shopping to stock up on a few more veggies, but for the most part, I think we are set on most recipes. I just did a huge stock up on chicken yesterday because I found it (boneless skinless) for $1.59 a pound - frozen, which I don't usually do because I like to prepare and portion my meats for meals before I freeze it - but at that price, I wasn't going to walk away.
I'll try to blog all the recipes unless they are a complete bomb. Tonight's has already been picked out, so check back tomorrow for the recipe and pictures (well, if my camera lets me - the flash is pretty icky these days ever since the smoke incident)
Saturday update: I'm actually having a blast messing around with creating new recipes at the last minute. OK, so I cheated having DH grill out steak one night, but hey, he was home and it was gorgeous outside! I'll definitely be doing more weeks like this - but remember, the reason I can do it is because I have a well stocked pantry. If you don't, you'll end up spending more money trying to create meals at the last minute.

Tuesday: Turkey Veggie Wraps, pasta salad
Wednesday: Cheesy Chicken Sandwiches, chips
Thursday: DH grilled steaks! (mmm!)
