of Meal Plan Monday. So we've been in the house a good 8 weeks now, and we've more or less settled in to our routine. We're both generally home (even after running errands) by 5 or 5:30 at the latest, then we work together to make dinner. Lately, Dan grills, while I prep something like veggies inside. But Dan's getting tired of Italian burgers (as freaking delicious as they are), so it's time to get the creative juices flowing again. As the weather heats up, the goal is to use the oven as little as possible, and I'm also in favor of working the Crock Pot into action at least once a week. So here's the plan this week.
Meal Plan: Week of May 9th
Dan's requests: pasta and chicken. You got it, Buddy.
Monday: Pasta - Italian sausage, whole wheat penne, and veggies
Tuesday: Shish-ke-bobs - chicken, mushrooms, peppers, pineapple. Yum!
Wednesday: Meatball subs. We don't do sandwiches much, but for some reason this one sounds good. I think I'll attempt roasted sweet potato fries to go along with the subs. They're our latest addiction.
Thursday: Mushroom Crock Pot chicken and broccoli. I'll do some extra to give us some easy left overs for the weekend.
Friday is still our date night, which means we generally head out for dinner to wash the work week away
