I actually have been meal planning but I just didn't post the list. Last week I filed some new recipes in my recipe binder. Then I pulled out any recipe that caught my eye and made a stack. Turns out I had enough recipes to fill out 2 work weeks of dinners. I shuffled the deck and came up with a 2 week meal plan excepting the weekends which I always leave blank. Then I make up a shopping list divided by the days of the week for any filler ingredients we may need. This helps me plan my shopping trips because I never go just once a week. Whenever I go to grocery store A to pick up those deals for the week I mark things off the list for the next few dinners. Then when I go to grocery store B a few days later I know what items I still need to get. Planned and planned!
I will leave off last week's menu but here's what we have going on this week.
Monday: Last night we have leftovers from what Mike grilled on Sunday. Mixed rosemary veggies on the grill and a Bobby Flay flank steak with fontina and prosciutto and a Cabernet reduction. Yum!
Tuesday: Chicken with lemon and leek linguine
Wednesday: Mushroom and Provolone Patty melts
Thursday: Italian Sausage and Potato Roast
Friday: Salmon with maple lemon glaze
Since we had leftovers last night and skipped a night last week I will have a few ideas to start the week next week. Gotta love roll over meal plans :)
