Weekly Dinner Plan 4/26/10

The highlight of last week definitely came at the end of the week when Meg and Mahbod came into town for a visit. They arrived on Friday and I had everyone, including Matt and Christine, over for dinner at my house. The menu included rosemary ranch chicken kabobs, roasted asparagus, and spaghetti squash and chard gratin. The gratin was definitely my favorite and I look forward to making it again. Last night I put together a plan through Thursday.

Mon - Palak Dal w/ Rice and Naan

Tue - Blackened Chicken over Fettuccine Alfredo

Wed - Taco Night

Thur - Out for Dinner

Last night on a whim I made this recipe. It was so so good. I cannot wait to eat the leftovers today.

Weekly Dinner Plan: 4/19/10

I yearn to be a very organized person. Someone who has all there Tupperware labeled, laundry done for the week in a day with the clothes put away in the right drawers all neatly folded and ready to go. I want to be that person who can find anything in their house instantly and never runs to the store for a last minute ingredient. Luckily, I was recently advised by a friend to visit and I am so so glad that I did. My first step is to start planning my meals out for the week on Sunday night (oops...already a day late so there is definitely room for improvement).

Monday - Easy Skillet Lasagna

Tuesday - Braised Balsamic Chicken w/ Rice

Wednesday - Spinach and Feta Quesadillas

Thursday - Leftovers

Friday - Grilled Teriyaki Chicken

Saturday -Out to Dinner w/Friends

My Mid-April Resolutions

Because why not?? Why must one only resolve to be a better person the first of the year. It's right after the craziness of Christmas and it's my birthday month. I happen to prefer to take a break. Not to mention that January is a cold and depressing month and not at all a motivating time for me to positive life changes.

So without further ado, my Spring 2010 Resolutions are as follows:

1) Blog as much as possible - I will achieve this by not being overly concerned with grammar, punctuation, interesting anecdotes and writing, jokes, or posting pictures. I will just write daily about what is going on and I may bore (you?) myself to tears one day if/when I read this in the future, but at least I will have something to read about my life.

2) Meal Plan on Mondays - See next post.

3) Work-out 3-5 days a week - Warning!! I will be posting pictures to track before/after progress.

4) Do not bite off more than I can chew, daily - So that's all I will resolve for now.

*Still need to work on re-designing this blog - colors, format, pictures, and title are all under construction.
