Meal Planning

I hate meal planning.  But I'm not good enough at making dinner to just "wing it" every night.  Plus, I would absolutely never have the right ingredients here.  So once a week I sit down with my computer, my cookbooks and my meal plan calendar to agonize over what I'm going to fix for dinner.

My meal planning calendar


But it's finished for the week, and here's what we've ended up with.

Sunday -- Three Cheese Ravioli with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce (I made a big bath of the sauce a month or so ago and threw it in the freezer.  We've had several meals off of this sauce, and it's so yummy!  Find the recipe here.)
Monday -- Beef Tamale Pie (I love me some Budget Bytes!  Almost always proves to be delish!  We're excited to try this recipe, but with my homemade cornbread.)
Tuesday -- Beefy Vegetable Noodle Soup  (This is actually my own concoction!!  See the post here.)
Wednesday -- Italian Sausage/Mushroom/Bell Pepper Saute (My parents do this on the grill.  We're going to do it on the stovetop.  Marinate the veggies in Italian Dressing and then saute them with the sausage.)
Friday -- Easy Peazy Spaghetti dinner.  We love love love Totta's Italian Sausage and V's Spaghetti Sauce.  It just so happens that Michael's family is responsible for both of those brands!
Sunday -- Cheesy Chicken and Rice.  This was one of the most recent recipes I put on the blog.  And like I said before -- stupid easy.

Happy eating!!
