Last week's menu plan didn't go 100% according to plans, but it went well for the first week. None of the meals were eaten on the actual day that I assigned for them. We didn't end up making the white chicken enchiladas, the horseradish parmesan potatoes, or the sole fillets. I really look forward to making those in the near future! They sound yummy! But anyways, we made everything else... just not on that exact day.
I'm proud of myself! I did this week's menu planning yesterday, went to the grocery store and got everything we needed... all by myself! It didn't take as long as last week either, but still not as fast as I want the process to go. I'm just glad that we are doing it. It means less trips to the grocery store (for the most part, unless we need to get something that should be bought the day of cooking) and it means I don't have to ask myself what we are having for dinner every single day after work. Yay for menu planning!
I tried to use up some items we had such as mushrooms, potatoes, asparagus, and elbow macaroni. And since we didn't end up making the white chicken enchiladas from last week's menu plan, we will make those this week. These are the meals I came up with....
Monday 11/1: White chicken enchiladas w/ green chile sour cream sauce, and parmesan asparagus
Tuesday 11/2: Mexican chicken with jalapeno popper sauce, and rotini
Wednesday 11/3: Eat out
