Weekly Meal Planning, Week of 6.4.12
I hope you guys are having a great weekend. After the wonderful insanity of last weekend, I was eager to just spend a relaxing weekend at home, so that's precisely what we're doing. Yesterday we explored the deserted playground of a closed elementary school in our town, and the boys had so much fun. I think we'll probably go back today.
Other than that, the day's agenda is pretty wide open: some baking, some playing, hopefully some napping, and not much else.
As far as the food for this week goes, I'm pretty excited about the meals I've planned. I feel like I've finally gotten my cooking groove back, and I think these delicious meals are just going to continue that trend.
Monday: Fried pickle ranch burgers, fries. I honestly haven't been able to get these burgers out of my mind since the first time I made them. I want -- nay, I need -- to make them again.
Tuesday: Zucchini bacon pasta, garlic bread. I'm not sure exactly what this will end up looking like, but if it involves bacon, zucchini, and copious amounts of cheese, I'm sure I'll be happy with it.
Wednesday: Grilled chicken Caesar flatbreads. I'll marinate chicken in Caesar dressing, grill it, then pile it on grilled flatbreads along with some romaine and parmesan. I think this'll be a delicious summery meal.
Thursday: Joe's softball game is late this week, but I still haven't planned a meal for this evening. I kind of look forward to not cooking on Thursdays during softball season!
Friday: Crock pot cheddar beer chicken tacos and Mexican sour cream rice. This is probably the meal I'm most looking forward to this week.
Saturday: Bacon cheeseburger meatloaf, mashed potatoes, buttered corn. This meatloaf is all Joe ever talks about. Every time I ask him what he wants for dinner, he tells me he wants this. So I'm adding it to our menu in hopes that maybe he'll stop talking about it for a month or so. But I doubt he will.
Sunday: Santa Fe egg bake. I saw this in a booklet of casseroles and thought it looked amazing. I can't wait to eat it!
