Meal Planning Monday

We were out of town all weekend so I'm behind on my grocery shopping and meal planning.  I need ideas, ladies, so share your plans!

The only meals I'm tentatively planning based on what I have at home are: 

Monday:  Ham and cheese omelettes, fresh fruit, mixed greens.

Tuesday:  Black bean, white onion, and green pepper tacos.

Re: Meal Planning Monday

  • I am probably not going to be very helpful, sorry. DH is out of town this week on a fishing trip, so T and I are on our own. I don't get home from work until 6:30ish Mon-Wed, so I will not be cooking part of the week.

    Tonight: leftovers

    Tues-Wed: who am I kidding? We'll probably stop at Subway on the way home after I pick T up from MIL's.

    Thurs: I am thinking these chicken skewers with some grilled potatoes and asparagus http://www.kimchichronicles.tv/2012/02/guest-recipes-closet-cookings-dakkochi/

    Fri: T cannot get enough beans and corn these days, so I am thinking some stuffed peppers like these http://www.tablefortwoblog.com/2012/06/08/stuffed-peppers/

    Saturday: I am OOT for a stagette, so T's having a sleepover with Grandma.

    Sunday: Not sure if DH will be home for dinner or not. Probably just burgers and salad.

    Chicken breasts with a bit of olive or grapeseed oil [just a little drizzle over the chicken to help the seasoning stick amd soak in better], a decent amount of seasoning on each side and patted in [I use Cabela's Open Season Jamaican Island Rum Seasoning but I would guess actual grocery stores would have something similar or Cabela's probably sells it online], and probably 2 shots or so per 3 breasts of Ron Diaz spiced rum [Captain Morgan would work too] poured over the top then left to marinate a while before grilling.

  • I started typing and realized that my meal plan this week is extremely similar to last week's, and that made me sad and slightly embarrassed. Poor DH and DD, how boring. I pledge to be more creative next week!

  • Ugh, I meal plan failed. Went grocery shopping tonight and just wasn't feeling it, and ended up getting some frozen pizza, stuff to make salads, and ravioli
