i love to cook

But I hate planning what to eat and dinner time always(most of the time!) ends up being a rushed frantic push to get something tasty and healthy on the table before it's almost bedtime lol.

I have done meal-planning in the past and last night decided enough was enough. My goal; to get into the habit of doing it again for the remainder of the summer so once school gets back in, I am back in the habit.

So I pulled out some of my favorite cookbooks while dinner was cooking last night and planned the rest of this weeks dinners.

Tonight-it's Beef Stir-fry. One of my favorites and we don't have it nearly enough because I hate touching raw meat and cutting it up *shudder* So I cheated and bought meat from the butcher that was already sliced. I figure the cost difference is worth it lol!

Wednesday-Crisp and Creamy Chicken

Thursday-Creamy BowTie Chicken

Friday-Quick Beef Burrito Skillet

Saturday-soup. Quite possibly the family favorite Hamburger Soup. Or a new one we have tried that seems to be a hit-Tortellini Soup

Sunday-BBQ veggies, BBQ new potatoes and steak.

Wish me luck!


  1. I get so tired of the cooking and the planning too, especially in the summer. Have you tried the allrecipes.com website? I've gotten so I rarely use cookbooks anymore, just look there for an idea that sounds good. It has all kinds of search features so if you're down to a few ingredients you can still come up with something. I always read the reviews too to tweak things a little.

  2. I get the meat thing. I really hate touching raw meat too! I force myself to but I really dislike it.

  3. way to be organized! menu sounds fantastic!!

  4. Yeah...I'll be eating at your house this week!

  5. Thanks! Your meal plan looks so delish, I am going to use it for my house and send a copy to my Mom. I printed the recipes off from the Kraft site. I also love to check in and see what Sat. goodie you have.

    AND,least I forget what is truly important here, your quilts are so pretty. I loved that disappearing nine patch table runner. I told my friend about your pretty cards, she getting into card making.

    Thanks for sharing your world with your blog readers!


I had to put word verification back on; just too much spam! Sorry, I'm not a fan either!!

Thanx for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
