menu planning!

You guys are gonna love this. Or at least, I think you'll love it. Or at least, I love it.

Guess what?

I'm going to cook dinner every single night this week.

How, exactly, am I going to do that? I'm so glad you asked! I'm going to PLAN A MENU! GREAT SCOTT!

I sort of did this last week and it worked really well! You didn't see any of the posts because, to be honest, I didn't love any of the recipes I chose. But last week's meals consisted of Dijon Chicken, Swordfish with Healthy Mac & Cheese, Veggie Enchiladas...and...going out to eat. We actually did pretty bad this past week and it was mostly my fault. It's so easy to fall back into the "let's just go grab something" routine, and then when you look at your bank records online and realize you practically spent an entire paycheck "grabbing something" that was neither memorable nor healthy in any way, shape, or form, you sort of want to vomit.

Not anymore! I'm planning my meals this week, baby, and it's gonna happen. Saving money, eating better, and, of course, trying out new recipes for all of you. Here's a preview of the week!

Sunday: Grilled burgers on whole wheat buns & salad
Monday: Chard & White Bean Stew
Tuesday: Turkey Tostadas with fiesta corn
Wednesday: Potato Pierogi and salad
Thursday: turkey sandwiches, fruit salad, and something else (I'll figure it out, okay? JEEZ!)
Friday: pasta with sauteed tomatoes, zucchini, carrots and mushrooms & frozen turkey meatballs
Saturday: Stuffed Cabbage & roasted veggies

Yes, I'm a bit too excited for this. I may find this enjoyable. Whatevs. Off to the grocery store!
