Ah, meal planning. I have had such good intentions lately, but have not been quite so good with the follow-through. Last week I had a full plan and grocery list together, and I don't think a single dish on the list happened. It's so frusterating when that happens! We had also planned to go to a local "Taste of Greece" night in town, an event put on by a nearby Greek Orthodox Church, but they ran out of food by the time we got there. Talk about dissapointment!
Of course, I forgot all about our craving for Greek food when putting together this week's plan. Instead I focused more on using ingredients in more than one dish so we can hopefully waste less food, and also on dishes that are more hot-weather friendly since it's supposed to be in the 80s most of this week. Even though it's hot, I sure do love summer!
On to the plan:
Monday: Sloppy Joes, Sweet Potato Fries, Broccoli Bacon salad
Tuesday: Twice Baked Potatoes, Salad
Wednesday: BLATs, leftover Broccoli Bacon Salad, Chips
Thursday: No-Bake Lasagna, Salad
Friday: Chicken Salad on Croissants, sliced veggies (carrots, cucumbers, peppers, etc.)
I also really, really want to bake this week. Something quick and summery, possibly fruity, but I can't decide what. Any suggestions?
