meal plan

if you are wondering whether creating a meal plan is worth it, let me save you some time: it's worth it. i haven't posted one for several weeks, but i have had a basic idea of what i was going to make for dinner most weeknights.

the thing i like about posting it is that i feel i need to adhere to it a bit....and i like to share what i'm cooking with teh interwebz.

a couple of disclaimers:

1. just because i write a menu plan doesn't mean i have to stick to it. it's a living document.

2. stuff happens, stuff like pack meeting. extra dance practice. one of the dogs vomiting all over the carpet and completely ruining my appetite.

so...without further adieu, here's my menu plan for this week:

monday: turkey barley soup (i'll post the recipe for this later. it's good.)

tuesday: corned beef and cabbage (traditional st. patrick's day food.)

wednesday: leftovers and/or cereal

thursday: philly dinner in a pocket from tales from the fridge (no fungus, tyvm)

friday: baked ziti (also from tales from the fridge!) (minor recipe correction, use 4% fat cottage cheese, not 1%)

if there is anything i love, it's cheese and it's pasta, so i'm really looking forward to friday night. i mean seriously. and the baked ziti is meatless, so i'm kinda excited to see how mine turns out. connie, from tales from the fridge (see link above) described it as orgasmic, so i'm really feeling the pressure here to perform.

here's to a good week. don't forget to wear green on tuesday!

I can't wait to find out what you think of the Baked Ziti!

I posted my menu today too.

Have a great week.

Baked Ziti huh? you'll have to write a review for me.

I have to meal plan when I grocery shop, so I know what the heck I need.
( I do bi weekly meal plans.)
It's a really good idea. And helps my grocerty shopping a ton.

But I'm with you.. just cause it says "Lasagna" on Weds.. Doesn't mean your actually going to get lasgna on wed. It might be Sun. instead. I'm not good at sticking to the calendar meal.
