What's for Dinner - Week of 7/15

Sometime last year, Dave and I started planning meals for each week together and kept to it for a while. It saved *so* much money at the grocery store because we were buying things with purpose rather than just choosing chicken, chili pepper, triscuits, and red solo cups. What the heck are we supposed to do with that combination?  Nothing, that's what.

Then there was a hurricane, we lost everything in the fridge, and had to buy all the staples again which somehow threw us off-course money-wise and we got out of the habit of planning meals. That's not an excuse, because it's not logical, but it's just what happened.

So we need to get back in the routine - and I feel like publishing the plan each week will help keep me accountable to planning the work/working the plan, as the great Franklin Roberts would say. So all 3 2 of you who read this, please hold me to this!

Here's the plan for this week:

All four of these recipes came from my Pinterest recipe board, so we're trying all new things this week! Also, I was apparently hungry for chicken and/or broccoli while picking out recipes! :)

Friday night we're going to see the Avett Brothers at Innsbrook After Hours, so we'll pig out on $9 hot dogs or some shit like that. FUN!


  1. Awesome. I hope you don't get bored with chicken and broccoli. LOL Did you stick with your neal plan tonight?

  2. sure did! it took twice as long to cook as the recipe said, but it was tasty :)
