Haha, so this Monday night I decided to "meal plan" for Thursday and the weekend. Most Thursdays I try to cook but the weekends turn into about 2 or 3 separate trips to the grocery store and Brandon and I leisurely walking down the aisles as we try to decide what mood we're in for dinner, ha. Oh the carefree life of a childless couple :) I know this surely will not last...thus why I am trying to prefect the meal planning thing!
Anyways...this weekend we're going to have a movie/dinner date night either Friday or Saturday so one meal right there will be eaten out. Sunday nights we tend to eat leftovers or sometimes make breakfast for dinner, whatev.
So this week I planned out 2 meals for the weekend. While I was brainstorming meals to cook (I like to try new things to impress my husband :) I thought to myself, "Self, where have you PINNED many tasty looking meals lately!?" PINTEREST!!! This is the link to my Pinterest "All that is delicious" board so I perused through to find some good stuff!
Tomorrow is my first day back to school and I was thinking I should go with something simple to ease my way back into the school year :) And to me, crock pot meals = simple! So tomorrow night we're having...
|Hawaiian Crock Pot Chicken|
|Cilantro Lime Rice|
We grill out most weather permitting weekends so Friday or Saturday (whichever night isn't eat out date night) we'll be having...
|Lime-infused Honey Crusted Chicken|
|Zucchini Oven Fries|
I made my grocery list yesterday, stopped by Target & Harris Teeter today and have all the ingredients so I'm ready to go! Look at me meal planning & putting Pinterest into use!! Ha
So far the planning has been successful I'd say...we'll have to see how the putting it into practice goes =)
