Meal Plan Monday 11/7/11
Have you found pinterest yet? Oh my, it's my latest addiction! I love how you can "pin" pictures to your "boards" and go back later on to see them. This works especially well for me since I have fewer and fewer smarticle particles daily and can't seem to remember anything. You can pin pretty much anything...recipes, craft ideas, home decorating ideas, favorite quotes...you name it, it's there. And if it's not there, as long as you have the website url, you can create a pin for it. I'm still figuring it all out but I really do love it.
So while browsing pinterest I found a few new recipes to try. We haven't been very adventurous in that department in quite a while, so I figured it's time. I'll probably tweak a few as I go and let you know about them later on.
Monday - Granny's Chili
Tuesday - Pumpkin Pasta with Sausage* with Broccoli or Green Beans (I'll probably use fat free evaporated milk instead of half and half)
Wednesday - Breakfast for supper - Scrambled eggs with Turkey Bacon, Oranges
Thursday - Crock Pot - Chicken Ropa Vieja* over brown rice
Friday - Cheesy Enchilada Stack* with Guacamole Salad (I'll probably use corn tortillas instead of flour)
Saturday - Braided Cheese Loaf (using crescent rolls filled with shredded mozzarella and Monterrey Jack cheeses, brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with garlic salt) Cocktail Meatballs and marinara for dipping and fruit
Sunday - Turkey Dinner for my parents anniversary
I also haven't been couponing in months. I had such a huge stockpile, I quit buying multiples of sale items. Guess what? I've done this before and it doesn't work well. Once you start couponing, don't stop!!! I've been buying the newspapers so I have the coupons. Now I just have to get back into the groove and get the deals. Hopefully, we can get back in the swing of things this week. My husband got a promotion at work and now he gets paid every other week. That means an overhaul to the budget. And I'll have to start figuring out the best way to get groceries weekly again. You know I don't like change, and it takes me a little while to get adjusted. But it's a good thing and I will adjust :)
Hope you have a great week!
