Meal Planning: Week of June 17th

I thought I'd try something new to keep me in the habit of blogging - sharing my weekly meal planning with you guys. Now, I never claimed it's super healthy, organic, or anything else. Mostly it's just quick and easy. And yes, we plan to eat out a couple of nights a week. Don't judge!

Sunday lunch: spinach salad (note - this got changed this week because the spinach in the store looked sad!)

Sunday dinner: steak & grilled corn on the cob (my honey is a Grill Master!)

Monday: out (working late, and I have a hair cut after work = we will get home late. so out it is)

Tuesday: pork chops and green beans

Wednesday: Sausage with peppers & onions

Thursday: chicken thighs & spanish rice

Friday: burgers

Saturday: play it by ear/out (I know..awful).

I find myself repeating the same meals week after week. I definitely need to mix it up a bit. Any suggestions for quick & easy dinners?? We're trying to stay low carb too, so that's a challenge for me.

Oh, and baking cookies on Sunday night probably doesn't help.

Enjoy your new day!

It's June?

Really? June 10th already? WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE?

Yes, just a short 5 months now until our Big Day. My list is getting checked off, and everything is moving forward. It feels a bit like playing hide-n-seek. You know the part where whomever is "it" shouts "ready or not here I come!"? Yeah, that part.

June is usually a pretty cool month for me, but this one is a bit of a challenge. In the "cool" category - my parents' will have their 42nd wedding anniversary on the 20th.

And I turn 29 (again, ahem) on the 27th.

According to the calendar, summer officially begins on the 21st; but I live in Texas, and summer really begins sometime in May.

In the less-than-cool category, work is a regular ass beating. It's our busy season, and while I knew it was coming, it sure doesn't make it any easier.

On top of that, I made a bone headed decision to take an industry certification test on June 22nd. No, I have no idea what I was thinking!!!

I'm guessing some of you might be wondering if I'm still into cooking, since I rarely post about that these days. And some of you might not be wondering, but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Yes, I still cook. It's usually very simple and quick dishes since we get home fairly late in the evening, and once we do get home, I'm flat beat. I'll get back to posting recipes soon.

For now, I must, MUST go watch the Season 5 premiere of True Blood.

No correlation to the upcoming recipes by the way. I know you wondered about that too...

Enjoy your new day!
