Meal Planning

I didn't post my meals last week, but that doesn't mean that we didn't eat well! We had a lot of groceries leftover from the previous week when I had the stomach flu and couldn't cook much, so I was able to stretch out our food for an extra week. No going to the grocery store, yippee. (Except to pick up about 3 gallons of milk - no more formula! yippee again.)

What I am going to try cooking this week.

Sunday: Fajita Quesadillas (using leftovers from the chicken fajitas we had Saturday night)
Monday: Turkey Chili (lame, I know. but I have a yearning for it this week!) and cornbread.
Tuesday: Grilled chicken and pan-roasted root veggies
Wednesday: Stir Fry? or Curry?
Thursday: Turkey day. Luckily, I am not doing the cooking!
Friday: Miso-glazed fish. We have a good friend visiting us, so I wanted to do something extra special for her! Plus, this dish is nice and light, which will balance out the gluttony of Thanksgiving.
Saturday: Korean-style chicken and brown rice (and a side of Kim Chi!)
Sunday: some kind of soup, maybe Italian Wedding Soup.

I figured out that it works out best for me to do most of my bulk cooking over the weekend and then utilize the leftovers in some form during the week.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone if I don’t get a chance to tell you before Thursday!

Miso-glazed fish sounds AMAZING. I feel so special! I'll bring a bottle of white wine! A family can never have too much wine on hand.

I am so looking forward to your visit.
