Menu Plan Monday

Ok! I'm going to try this out and see if these meals actually get made this week. My husband will be thrilled that I'm attempting to cook a few nights in a row. I've been spoiled since he's been on vacation and he actually has been doing a lot of the cooking. Since I'm the only one that "cooks" for baby - it's a tremendous help to a) have some spare time to myself while he gets dinner ready for us or b) I'm busy feeding the boy and dinner would be far later than either of us would appreciate. So a big thank you to my husband for his efforts in the kitchen; my heart and my stomach thank you so does baby's stomach.

I digress! Menu planning for this week. Hmm so many choices and so little time to actually accomplish these type things. I will try to aim low on the expectations bar for this go around.

Monday: Chicken Tortilla Soup

Tuesday: Potluck style meal - we're in charge of drinks!

Wednesday: Steak or Chicken Fajitas with spanish rice

Thursday: Spaghetti and Meatballs

Friday: Shredded poppy seed chicken

Saturday: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Sunday: Leftovers or Eat Out... or a sandwhich - Sundays are always unpredictible.

seriously, is my FAVORITE website ever :) My saving grace in Japan since I can't get half of the normal ingredients...I just exclude them along with anything else useful and still have 100's of recipes to look through :) Happy Cooking! PS If you can get a group of friends together and the cookbook, Don't Panic; Dinner's in the freezer - it's a great cost effective/time effective meal planning :) and super yummy!
