Weekly Meal Plan

Welcome to Week #5 of my meal planning experiment!

I'm a day late this week since we had an extra dinner out last week to celebrate 3 wonderful years together.  But now I find that even though I am slammed with work I am also reluctant to go to the grocery store without a plan!

Here's the plan for this week :

{old favorites}

Cornish Game Hens with Stuffing, Roasted Red Potatoes & Green Beans
Crab Cakes with Cilantro Lime Sauce & Roasted Asparagus
Mushroom Herb Chicken with Baked Sweet Potatoes
Turkey BBQ with Sweet Potato Fries & Steamed Corn

{new recipes}

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts
Mushroom Appetizers with Grilled Pork Tenderloin Marinated in Spicy Soy Sauce & Fresh Grilled Zucchini

{baking project - if I have time!}
Black Bean Brownies as suggested by An Organic Wife

View my other meal planning blog entries at this link.  They are all packed with good recipes so enjoy!

  7. Planning makes such a difference! I spend way less at the store when I go in with a plan for the week. Thanks for sharing at shine on fridays!

  8. Amy - I was going to bring this up next week ... not only does it save money, but I have a better idea of how much we spend weekly then I ever did making a million little trips. It is actually pretty consistent.

  9. Ok. I'm gonna have to try the black bean brownies. They freak me out a little but they have been popping up everywhere so they must be good!

  10. @AugustMagnolia - They have been on my list for awhile now too ... I love brownies and black beans so I figure they must be good ;)
