I loaded up at the market this morning and just planned out my week's meals. I should preface this by saying that I'm not always great about sticking with my meal plans. For one reason or another, something always gets flip flopped (arugula won't last until Wednesday, chicken hasn't thawed yet, missing an ingredient for a recipe, etc). That said, I think as long as you have a basic outline, enough food and some creativity, you can mix it up as needed.
Here's my menu plan for this week....
BLTAs (using my favorite bacon from the market and delicious bread)
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
Leftover Butternut Squash Soup, Arugula Salad
Christopher’s Texas Pecan Crusted Halibut in Tomato Orange Sauce
Sauteed Brussel Sprouts with Lemon and Pistachios
Potato Leek Soup
Sauteed Red Kale (with onion and bacon)
Chicken in Wine Sauce
Momma's night off as you know
Other (will use for lunch or another side dish for dinner one night)
Sweet Potato Fries (new recipe)
Braised Cabbage (new recipe)
