Weekly Meal Planning, Week of 1.17.11

It's official: I'm in a blogging slump. Even though I have tons of recipes to share, I'm having trouble finding the motivation to actually blog about them. I had big plans for the blog in 2011, too, so this slump is coming at a really inconvenient time. Hopefully I can ease myself back into blogging this week.

We've also had a little bit of a change of financial circumstances (temporary, hopefully), so while I'm still meal planning, my meal plans are definitely more based on what's on sale at my grocery store during a given week, rather than just whatever sounds good. I'm still going to share them with you, because I think economical meals are good to have -- no matter what kind of budget you're working with.

Monday: Chicken and mushroom ragu over fettuccine

Tuesday: Pork chops, baked potatoes, mashed cauliflower

Wednesday: Creamy tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwiches

Thursday: Chicken stir fry with ramen noodles

Friday: No cooking

Saturday: Crescent roll lasagna

Sunday: Creamy garlic pork chops, mashed potatoes, roasted broccoli

I totally understand meal planning on a budget, most of the time I come up with this fantastic meal plan only to realize that it's going to cost us a small fortune and end up changing half of it to veggies that are on sale or recipes with ingredients we have. It gets easier with time, I have tons and tons of recipes saved on my computer then I make a list of what's on sale and go through the recipes looking for ones that match the sales. It's the simplest way that I have figured out how to do it.

Ugh I am soooo in a blogging slump too! I have so many recipes to blog about but just need to upload the pics and find the time and motivation to blog about them.

That crescent roll lasagna looks yummy, I hope you post the recipe!

(Sorry, I am a week behind on reading blogs! So I am a tad bit late on your posts too)
