I’ve been in a horrible rut lately.
While I’ve been religiously meal planning every week, it’s been solely based on what we already have in the house to work with. And what can be cooked in under 20 minutes with the least amount of dishes.
While generally this kind of challenge is pretty thrilling for me (I know I need to get out more), I’ve been choosing meals based on hunger satiation, not so much culinary enjoyment. Hence the lack of cooking posts this month…
This week I’m going to try a couple new recipes to spice things up a bit. And next month, I’m going to work off a month long meal plan. Because this tool was fantastic at keeping me prepared, focused, and excited about meal planning. And Lord knows I need all the help I can get.
Monday: Southwest Black Bean Pasta*
Tuesday: Cowboy Casserole*
Wednesday: 40 clove Garlic Chicken*, Green Beans
Thursday: Dinner out
Friday: Fish Sticks, Macaroni ‘n Cheese, Peas, Applesauce
