The last few weeks of menu planning have been tough for me. I've been feeling uninspired and unmotivated, and I found myself waiting until the last possible minute to pull something together. In attempt to snap out of my menu-planning funk and refocus my efforts, I gave myself a firm deadline and actually managed to finish this week's Menu Plan with minimal procrastination.
Since Stephen and I are in Connecticut visiting my family this weekend, I was saved from the task of coming up with ideas for Sunday's dinner. I'm actually pretty excited that we'll be revisiting some meals that I haven't prepared in a while, and I'm hoping this means I've turned a corner. Menu planning would be so much easier to handle if I were [somewhat] excited about it.
Menu Plan: June 30 - July 6, 2013
Sunday: Family party in Connecticut
Monday: Shrimp Fried Rice with Fiery Lime Sauce
Tuesday: Stuffed Bell Peppers with Ground Turkey and Sun-Dried Tomatoes (These peppers were on the Menu Plan last week, but it turned out to be too hot to turn on the oven. I'm hoping for better luck this week.)
Wednesday: Stephen's Choice
Thursday: Strawberry Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps (Described by my husband as "the best damn strawberry chicken thing you ever had, bitches.")
Friday: Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella and Basil
Saturday: Quinoa Salad with Grilled Sourdough
So... what's on your Menu Plan this week? Do you know of any recipes that I absolutely must try? Let me know by leaving a comment below!
