Weekly Meal Planning, Week of 3.19.12

Sorry the meal plan is a day late, guys. This has been such a busy month for me that I’m just trying my best to stay afloat and keep up with all of my have-to commitments, let alone my want-to commitment to this blog.

Speaking of commitments, the baby shower I hosted for my sister-in-law on Saturday went off without a single hitch. Everyone had such a wonderful time, and I got lots of compliments on the food. I’ll be sharing a few of the recipes with you in the coming weeks!

Here’s what we’re eating this week.

Monday: Greek beef tacos. I didn’t make these last week (I actually only cooked twice all week!), so I’m looking forward to having them tonight. It’ll actually probably be just me eating them. Joe worked last night, and Andrew has pink-eye and can’t go to daycare, so Joe’s staying up with our boy at home today. He’s such an awesome dad. I’m sure he’ll crash the instant I get home tonight, but that’s okay – more for me!

Tuesday: BLT caprese sliders and chips. How cute are these sandwiches? I can’t wait to try them.

Wednesday: Baked ziti and garlic bread. This version of baked ziti comes highly recommended by Debbie, so I can't wait to try it. And I need to do so before I switch gears to lighter spring meals!

Thursday: Sausage pancakes on sticks, tater tots. As soon as I saw Ree make these on her show, I knew we’d be having them sooner rather than later.

Friday: I’m having lunch with my sister and then going to see The Hunger Games in the afternoon, and I’m not sure what time I’ll get home. We’ll probably order pizza.

Saturday: My cooking club is meeting in the evening, and I’m responsible for the dessert portion of the meal. I’m making tiramisu cake, suggested by my friend Jessie.

Sunday: Spinach-artichoke baked pasta. This sounds similar to a couple of things I’ve made before, but I can’t wait to try this version. If it has cream cheese and sour cream in it, you know it’s a winner in my book.

My husband doesn't know it yet, but I'm going to see The Hunger Games at some point this weekend. I can't wait! I hope you have so much fun!

I'm dying to try the sausage/tater tots. They looked so good! I made the steak bites for Aaron and I a couple of Fridays ago, and we loved them. Simple and delicious!
