One way to make your week go smoothly is to put together a menu plan. They work for me, and they also keep me from ordering takeout, which can get expensive and unhealthy. The key for me is to stick to quick and easy meals that I can pull together any night of the week no matter how busy my day was.
Here's what's on our plates this week:
Monday - Lemon spaghetti with shrimp. This is an indulgent dish that's so easy to make at home but taste's like restaurant-quality.
Tuesday - Asian chopped salad with spicy peanut dressing. I don't know if I am more excited to have this for dinner or to have leftovers for lunch for a few days. It's one of my favorites, and I often double the dressing recipe and put it on noodles too.
Wednesday - Slow cooker Mexican pot roast. This was on last week's menu plan, but we ended up having Sunday's dinner on Saturday because we always have cheese fondue for the Oscar's.
Thursday - Easy Italian stuffed peppers. If you think this is just another boring recipe for stuffed peppers, you're wrong. This recipe includes a spicy, Balsamic sauce that's sure to be an amazing complement to the peppers.
Friday - Dinner out
Saturday - Rigatoni with creamy tomato sauce. I'm always up for an easy pasta dish on a Saturday night, and this one doesn't get any easier!
Sunday - We are going to visit the Hubs' nephew and his family. We'll have salad, pizza, and I'm going to offer to bring dessert (maybe this).
