Meal Pinning Monday

April 7, 2013

[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. 

Tuesday- Leftovers

Wednesday- Paleo Pad Thai (except with peanuts & spaghetti squash)
I've noticed I don't have an issue with beans & legumes, so I'm not fussing to leave them out. Plus I prefer natural peanut butter to almond butter. No sense in doubling the price of dinner simply because paleo/whole30 excludes foods that I'm not sensitive to. I've decided to follow it 80/20 just to keep my sanity. 

Thursday- Chicken Spaghetti (remaking my original recipe in an attempt to make it healthier :: I'll post it later in the week :: plus the photo quality is awful and needs to be redone)

Friday- Leftovers

Saturday- Sister-in-Law's Wedding

Sunday- Eating out
