  1. That cowboy stew sounds delicious!! I don’t know where I”d be without my meal plan… Even when I’m forced to move things around as the week changes, I know if I didn’t do it I’d be making things like chicken nuggets or frozen pizza in a pinch instead of borrowing from tomorrow’s dinner, for example. It’s sooo taken the stress out of dinnertime!

    1. It’s new and I’m looking forward to it! :)
      I totally agree! And a home cooked meal is so much better than nuggets, lol but I know exactly what you mean because I do the same thing when I don’t have a plan. :P


  2. I do meal plan, or at least try to! I am trying to do lots of fresh vegetable cooking this week and skip as many carbs as possible since we just went on vacation and ate out like crazy! This week we are doing:
    Monday – Meatless Monday w/Coconut Curry beans over rice
    Tuesday – Shrimp Avocado Ceviche
    Wednesday – Ratatouille (also vegetarian)
    Thursday – One Pan Oven Roasted Lemon Chicken and Asparagus
    Friday – Homemade Egg Pasta w/an Italian Sausage Red Wine Sauce (we are having guests over so carbs don’t count ;)
