Meal Pinning Monday // on a Tuesday

November 6, 2012

Yes I know it is Tuesday, but with the Brummel & Brown Thanksgiving post scheduled for yesterday I didn't want to double post. So instead we are a day late and a dollar short:) Better than last week though, I completely forgot to add the Meal Pinning Monday banner to the post!

[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]
MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking. 

Monday: Lasagna Soup

Tuesday: Pan Roasted Chicken & Fried Cabbage
I like to use this Gorden Ramsey recipe form his show The F Word but without the Morel sauce. It is super easy and turns out great every time.
And of course my favorite cabbage...but made a little lighter using just a smidge of butter and mostly olive oil. 

Wednesday: Leftover Lasagna Soup - to save me from cooking on this crazy busy night. Plus Jeremy will be at LSPA and I will be running around like a crazed person getting things done. 

Thursday: Grilled Chicken with Roasted Brussel Sprouts - no recipe, just seasoned however I feel and the sprouts roasted with salt, pepper, and garlic. 

Friday: Baked Pasta with Sausage & Spinach -Hosting the Young Minister's Dinner at our house this month. This is one of the best baked pasta dishes I've made recently. 

Saturday: Leftovers

Sunday: Taco Pasta

Told you you'd be seeing the last week of 31 Days recipes again. I am finally getting a chance to make them! You probably noticed, or didn't, that instead of eating the high carb meals straight through that meals between them are lower carb. There is a reason for this and I will be sharing tomorrow:)
