(hehe, love that saying.)
There is something that I had done before that I found helpful and I don't know why I didn't continue with it when I returned back to work. Menu planning is what I am talking about. A half hour to an hour for a week of knowing what's for dinner and what to buy grocery shopping. It really did help me with the "what to make for supper" dilemma each day. So I am trying this again.
I don't use anything fancy, just some cookbooks, www.allrecipes.com, and my list of days of the week. As well, i just plan for supper, sometimes for breakfast or lunch if there is something special, but for the most part it is supper that is my hang up.
So here is this weeks menu plan. I'm trying some new recipes so if they are good I will add the recipes here.
Monday - Stromboli (baked sandwich/loaf) - This was really good. I'll do it again. Family loved it and I also made this for another family and they loved it too.
Tuesday - Tortilla Soup - This was OK. I'll stick with taco soup instead.
Wednesday - Steak and Potatoes - Another good recipe for the crockpot. Tasted more like a roast than steak, but then again you can't beat the BBQ.
Thursday - Chicken Supreme - blech - nuf'said.
Friday - Fish and Rice - Fish had always been a challenge for me. I'll keep trying.
Saturday - Leftovers
Sunday - Chicken Pasta Bake - ended up trying homemade gnochi instead. Yummy.
