Lots of doubling of recipes this week since I'll be out of town and want to do my best to make sure the guys have plenty of food to eat while I'm gone.  I've also had some challenging days recently, so cooking larger amounts on the days that I can cook seems wise.  

I've got a ton of spinach that I need to use which is why I've planned meals 2 and 3.  Whatever doesn't get used in those recipes will get frozen for another time, since I think we'll be sick of spinach by then.  

I've been going through my old recipe posts for meal planning inspiration recently, it's been fun and it really makes me want to get back to posting recipes!  I need to make this a Friday evening thing during our Family TV Night since it'd keep my hands busy but not be super distracting.  

Menu 2/8/2015

  1. chipotle
  2. lasagna soup

  4. grilled steaks, slow cooker cheese bacon ranch potatoes out
  5. leftover night
  6. tandoori chickenindian potatoes with peas

Art asked to grill this week, so we're hoping that the forecast will hold true for Wednesday's dinner to allow for that.  Grilling in the cold, and even dark, is one thing, but when there's snow and rain?  Nope!  So I try to plan grilling nights around the weather when possible.  

Some new recipes this week, some old recipes too, hopefully it'll be tasty stuff.

  1. stuffed salmon with sriracha cream sauce, rice
  2. butter poached tilapia, rice

  4. tilapia piccata
  5. leftover night
  6. chicken sancoche x2, rice
  7. breakfast for dinner – cheese mushroom bacon omelets, hashbrowns

Art is out of town for the first part of the week which means I'm cooking ALL THE FISH.  Very exciting.  Lance and I love fish.  Yum.  Sadly it's also all the rice, but oh well, sometimes that's the way meal plans turn out.  I tried to replace one of the instances of rice with pasta or potatoes, but it just didn't seem like it would work with any of the recipes.  Good thing Lance loves rice, eh?  

Menu 1/25/2015

  1. slow cooker ginger orange chicken x2, rice
  2. breakfast for dinner – cheese mushroom bacon omelets, hash browns I forgot it was Chipotle Day when I planned this.
  3. chicken sancoche, rice We had to put out beloved kitty down this day, so we ended up getting Wawa.
  4. waikiki meatballs, rice
  5. leftover night
  6. sirloin tip roast, mexican street corn off the cob
  7. out with friends

I missed cooking a meal last week since I was feeling unwell, so meal 1 is a holdover from last week's meal plan.  I'm realizing that this is a pretty rice heavy meal plan, but last week we had a lot of pasta so I don't feel too bad about the prevalence of rice this week!  This week we'll be revisiting some old favorites that we haven't had in way too long.  

Next week Art will be out of town for the first time in forever, so I'll be cooking ALL THE FISH.  

Menu 1/18/2015

  1. sloppy joes, rolls for guys, caesar salad

  4. loaded baked potato soup (extra bacon)
  5. hamburger stroganoff
  6. TBD out
  7. slow cooker hungarian goulash, egg noodles

I don't have the entire week planned out yet because it's pretty late Monday night and I need to go shopping tomorrow.  I figure that I'll just shop for the meals I have planned and plan the other two nights once I have more time.  I don't want to take the time right now to figure out what meats there are to use up from the freezer and all that jazz!
