There's Something About: My Meal Planning

Ok, I don't plan meals ahead - AT ALL. I already explained I'm not much of a cook. I've tried to plan in the past, but always felt like week after week we were eating the same thing. And I know it would be helpful in this oh-so-busy house. So, I made a small attempt today. I hit the grocery store with a couple of ideas in mind. Here goes...

Stuffed artichokes and Giada De Laurentiis - Chicken Stew (I found this in my rarely touched recipe binder.)

Hubby & I enjoyed these!
The kids did not enjoy this.
Baked salmon with lemon pepper, steamed rice and veggies

Grilled cheese sandwiches

Baked pork chops with salad

It's almost always pizza night - whew!

I don't have pics or recipes for everything because most of it is just stuff I've always made and doesn't require a lot of prepping, therefore, no recipe needed. But I'll try to take pics the rest of the week so if I use these meals again, I'll have pics on file. That's called blog-prepping. Ok, maybe not, but that's what I'm calling it. I'm trying to sound like I know what I'm doing, you know, while blogging or cooking.

Anyway, I'm linking up here. Have fun planning your meals!



  1. Add pepperoni to those grilled cheese sandwiches- your kids will DIE! It was SOOOO GOOD!

    Looks like a great week, gal!

  2. Ooo stuffed artichokes sound amazing! And, I'm a huge fan of Friday pizza night. What could be better than that?

  3. Stuffed artichokes sound good!
    I'm not great at meal planning. Sometimes I get into a groove and do a good job planning things out and other times I just wing it and we run out of food on Friday. (Oops!)

  4. Looks like a yummy week of good food!

  5. I don't think I've ever had or made stuffed artichokes but that sounds yummy! Sometimes meal planning works for me...other times not so much.

  6. We just had grilled cheese last night!! I just love it. We don't have kids yet but I am always down for good grilled cheese :) We are also OBSESSED with artichokes! They are so good! New follower through the Walkabout! Can't wait to follow along!
