Meal Planning Monday… um… ya, I know, it’s Tuesday

Amidst all the spiritual growth and being in a flare with my Crohn’s, I have slipped in my meal planning, but we are back on the wagon… the CHUCK wagon, that is… (LOL! I crack me up!)

This is a short week for us. Kevin and I are off to North Carolina this weekend for the All-Star Race. Not a NASCAR fan? It’s ok, I wasn’t either until I met Kevin. I won’t tell. We leave Friday afternoon. So that leaves us with meals for Today through Thursday.

I was really excited this morning when I fell though some bloggy rabbit-holes and found a new blog the Whole New Mom, where I found her recipe for home made taco seasoning. Imagine! A less expensive way to make taco mix. My house is a taco house. We loves us some tacos. I would love to have the control over what is going in to my tacos. So, this week, I am going to try it.

So, what’s going on our table this week?

Tonight: Potroast with Blackberry Cobbler for dessert

Wednesday: Tacos (with our new taco seasoning mix – I will tell you how it goes)

Thursday: Lemon chicken with rice ala Minute Rice recipes from way back in the day

Sometimes, we just need a short week… ya know what I mean?

    Ha Ha! Chuck Wagon! 🙂 I am glad that you posted this! I am literally (as we speak) in the process of figuring out the whole grocery situation. We have cut our bill in half over the past few weeks, BUT at the cost of having some pretty predictable and boring recipes unless Matt creates something which is always great! We are trying to utilize items already in our pantry to avoid buying ingredients we already have. So, I am currently looking at meals to use up pasta, pasta sauce, canned corn, and peas. I was also looking into freezing meals, but I have to admit I’m picky when it comes to frozen food (even if it’s made at home). Some things just don’t taste great frozen. I can do soups. I have used Pioneer Woman, but I was wondering if you know of any useful sites and also recipes for a crock-pot (my best friend when I don’t feel well.)
