Menu Plan: July 13 - July 19

Sharing our Menu Plan for July 13 - July 19, 2014
Magazine Pullouts

Those of you who follow me on Instagram saw that I recently spent some time weeding through my collection of recipes that I pulled out of magazines in an attempt to Control. The. Chaos. Although it was a little overwhelming, I had fun going through the stack of recipes, trying to remember exactly why I was inspired to tear the page out of the magazine. When all was said and done, I threw more than half of the pages into our recycling bin, only keeping the recipes that I was serious about trying some day.

This week's Menu Plan includes a handful of recipes from the "keeper" pile, and I can't wait to test them out! Are you ready to see what's on deck for dinner for us this week?

Menu Plan: July 13 - July 19, 2014

Sunday: Garlicky Grilled Shrimp (from Food & Wine Magazine) over White Rice

This was actually on last week's Menu Plan. I was going to make it for dinner yesterday, but Stephen and I decided to schedule a Date Night instead. Since I had already gone out to buy the shrimp, I decided to push it to tonight.

Ah, the beauty of menu planning... Even though you've structured a plan, it actually allows you some flexibility when you need it.

Monday: Dinner out with Friends

Two of our dearest friends are passing through town on Monday night, so we're going to take advantage of the situation and join them out for drinks and dinner. I love it when spending time with friends means that I get a night off from cooking. ;-)
