Meal planning (or lack thereof)

Chris and I have been horrible lately at cooking at home. We really enjoy cooking, and in the past have made most meals at home.  I think life has just got busy and tiring (and probably just out of being lazy) so we have kind of gotten away from that good habit of ours. Also, we kind of suck at cleaning up our cooking messes.

This week I am turning that around by using up the frozen meat & veggies in our freezer, and making a trip to the store tomorrow for some other things and actually planning meals to make this week in hopes of getting us back on track.

I just wanted to share some of the yummy things I have planned, and if they turn out good – will share the outcome later!

From top left to right: Grilled Fish Tacos, Roasted Asparagus with Olive Vinaigrette, Grilled Corn, Avocado & Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Dressing, Pea, Feta & Crispy Prosciutto Salad,  Spinach Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Buttered Popcorn Cupcakes, Roasted Chicken Thighs with Fennel & Lemon, and Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Honey Lime Dip.

Like how I threw a cupcake recipe in our “meal plan”? Hah! Really, it’s just something I wanted to make this week (and dessert is part of a meal, RIGHT?!).

  1. I actually wrote a “menu” on the chalkboard for this week. I really want to get back into the swing of having a solid dinner plan and making it easier on myself to get dinners (and planned-over lunches ) not only prepared but shopped for and stocked in the pantry.

    Since I have been feeling so crappy, it’s been hard to be focused.

  2. Good luck on getting back into the kitchen! We have spurts of cooking, followed by spurts of being lazy too. Pinterest has really helped inspire me to cook more though!

  3. I’ve been eating out a lot lately too and I’m feeling gross because of it. I love all of these different recipes you’ve found! They all seem SO fresh and healthy! Definitely let us know how they turn out.

  4. YUM! Those dishes look incredible. I’m always looking for new recipes too. Thanks for sharing.
