An Adventure in Meal Planning.

Jan 16, 2012

I've begun to try out meal planning. I absolutely hate the question "What's for dinner?" Especially when I have to follow it with "I don't know, what do you want?" So I'm putting a stop to it. I got a monthly calendar & planned out meals for a week. And then two. It was so fun to think of new things to eat! I searched Pinterest for all those recipes I've pinned to make one day but never gotten around to, along with all my favorite food blogs and came up with a simple meal plan, fit for two people. So far the result has been a happy wife for Aaron and a happy husband's tummy for me. That's a win-win in my book. 

One of my favorites were these Chicken Roll-ups that were so easy to make and I had leftovers for lunch the next day.

One of Aaron's all time favorites is wings so I took a bunch of frozen ones, poured on the teriyaki sauce and let them marinade for 2 days in the fridge. Then we baked them in the oven and added cheesy scalloped potatoes! It was a delicious meal.

For an added treat Aaron came to help me in the kitchen and we made these incredibly easy & equally delicious donuts. They were perfect!

So far I really like meal planning. We'll see how it lasts.
