This is me trying to be organized about meals. One of my new year's resolutions! I sat down last Sunday made a plan. Here it is:
S: Fresh Pasta with Tomatoes, Crispy Deviled Eggs (these are from How to Eat Supper and they are so good)
M: TV Dinner Night! Pierogies, Carrots and Dip
T: Chili (Mom and Dad brought supper!)
W: Knit Night (this means Brent usually gets McDonald's)
T: Porcini Farro (except I couldn't find Farro so I made this Pasta Bake instead--delicious), Salad, Grape Phyllo Tart (from Martha Stewart's new book, super good)
F: Pumpkin Leek Soup, Cheese Flautas
S: Chicken Marsala on sage polenta, Salad, Rice Pudding
It went more or less like that.
And now it's already time for this week's menu planning! Any recommendations?
I am so in love with myself for working on this new year's resolution. Self, you are so organized and awesome. I hope I don't burn out after three weeks. Which could so happen. Because planning, shopping, and cooking add up to a part-time job and heaven knows I don't have time for that in between all my knitting and American Idol watching.
