No way to get started on a resolution than to just jump right in, eh? I am at home today, playing housewife (and loving it, btw). Our pantry is heavy on the dried grains so I picked recipes to help us blow through them. And use up the frozen peas that I keep buying for some reason. The other step I took to keep costs down was to choose 2 recipes with the same herb, dill. I love fresh herbs!
This week we don't have a lot going on in the evenings, except for a swim workout tonight, so we'll have time to make and eat dinner 4 nights. Saturday night we have plans, but I still want to make an effort to eat at home on the weekends. So, I am planning 4 meals that we can eat for dinner and lunch and a soup we can grab anytime. And I try to cut up tons of fruits and vegetables and bag them for lunches and snacks all week. I'm sure no one cares, I'm just talking this through for myself and making a plan :)
Tuesday night: QUINOA + SHRIMP SALAD
Wednesday night: DILL MUSTARD CHICKEN with BROCCOLI
Thursday night: WHEAT BERRY WALDORF SALAD with HAM
Friday night: FRIED RICE with CHICKEN
Soup: CREAMY TOMATO BASIL
What are some of your weeknight favorites? Have a great week!
