Menu Planning

Some weeks I am really, super, organized with my menu planning. I will sit down the night before my trip to the grocery store, with a cup of tea of course, at my little kitchen nook. I will slowly pull down the books one-by-one and drool over each and every page, while I meticulously pick our the ones I want to try.

Then there are weeks like today. It is 15 minutes before I am supposed to leave work, pick up my munchkin, and head to the store; and I am scrambling to put something together as fast as possible! It is a time when I pull out favorite staples out, and scan my blog for something that was simple, and I loved by have not have a chance to try again...creating new staples :). Of course I still try to find something new and exciting to try, just not a time when I let the creative juices flow.

Thursday: Spaghetti & meat sauce (This is perfect too because half the sauce can go into the freeze in preparation for when baby is here!)
Friday: Tofu in black bean sauce
Saturday: Chorizo & Pea Rissotto
Sunday: Thai style potato & leek soup (Won't Hubby be happy, soup for the second time in a week! Again though good to freeze!))
Monday: Leftovers/freezer stuff :)

Have a good week!
