suzie homemaker

so one of the things i have been wanting to do better is meal planning. i work from home so i have no excuses but i get lazy. sometimes i find myself saying... let's just go get something tonight and that has been happening way too often lately. we have been out of town a LOT the past 2 months so now that we are home for a while i decided to put this into practice. i think part of the reason that i tend to want to go out is because i get bored with the same old stuff. so in my quest to cook and eat at home more i have been in search of new and interesting recipes that are still somewhat easy and not going to cost a lot either.
so i thought i would share my list with you because i'm sure i am not the only one out there with this dilemma. a lot of my findings were from blogs. recipes are always more enticing when a picture is included.

here it is...
mon - beef stew with mushrooms served over egg noodles
tues - chicken enchilada casserole
wed - leftovers (wed is our leftover night because of church)
thurs - lasagna
fri - goat cheese stuffed turkey burgers w/ baked sweet potato fries

mon - lemon chicken pasta
tues - italian meatball soup
wed - leftovers
thurs - mustard broiled salmon, homemade mash pot., asparagus
fri - sesame chicken with fried rice

i do not plan for sat and sunday nights because our weekends tend to be crazy and if we are home we will eat leftovers or sandwiches or sometimes i make breakfast for dinner.
if any of these recipes look enticing to you i would be happy to send you the recipe or the link to the blog.

happy cooking!

Hey. You are so cool. Planning and everything... I'm doing good to actually cook a real meal once a week, but I'm definately inspired. :) Tonight, however, is black beans and rice... just like last night. Next time, I'm making them by the cup and not by the entire bag. Who knew one bag serves 40 people?!?

hehe. i made that mistake with dry beans too. it was the first year we lived in bwk and i wanted to make black eye peas for new years day. we had enough black eyed peas to last the whole year! :)
you should check out some of the blogs. they're great! and i just joined LOTS of free recipes.
