mmm mmm meal plan
The weather is getting warmer, the grass is getting greener and I want to spend more and more time outside. Luckily my husband bought me some really nice gardening gloves and snippers so I spent the morning cleaning up the plants in the garden and raking the dead grass. I have given up hope of our backyard actually looking like a yard until our puppy grows but this picture will show you why I needed to putter out there to make myself feel bettter.
The stones were covering holes that had been dug...
Now I am back inside devising a menu for this week.As the weather gets warmer I have less and less to desire to cook supper much less try to come up with a supper idea, so getting the week all planned ahead is working great. I love not having to dig into my creative meal idea bank at the end of a long day, it's already done.
So for this week we will be having:
Warm Chicken Ranch Wraps and Tomato Soup
Corn on the cob with Hot German Potato Salad and raw veggies
Shrimp Scampi Bake over linguine
Refried Bean Enchiladas with tossed salad
Saturday: Homemade whole wheat pizza with caesar salad (missed it last week)
Mexican Pile-Up(my husband's favourite, basically taco ingredients: seasoned ground beef, beans, rice, lettuce, tomato, green pepper, cheese, salsa and sour cream on top of crushed nacho chips)
