Menu Plan Monday: 8/5/2013

I'm actually excited for this week and being able to cook more! I finished my class last week and now I'll be cooking 4 times a week instead of 2! Yea, let's see often this happens. Just being real and knowing that cooking 4 days in a row just doesn't happen all the time. 

Luckily, this week I'll only have to cook 3 days. We went to Disneyland this past weekend and we will be doing our weekly grocery shopping today instead of on Sunday. We eat at IN-N-OUT for dinner on our grocery shopping days. It's easy, quick, and super cheap!

Weekly Highs & Lows

Lows: I think my weekly low last week was the fact that I only cooked once last week. I made the Chicken Arrabiata Pasta, but that was it. Oh well, life happens and some times we just can't cook all week long.

Highs: And, of course, our weekly high was the Chicken Arrabiata Pasta since it was the only thing I cooked! It really was good, though. A nice spicy tomato sauce with some grilled chicken over rotini pasta. My husband doesn't like Italian food and he really enjoyed this dish.

Weekly Meal Plan

Monday:  IN-N-OUT
Like I said, we are doing our weekly grocery shop tonight and we always eat IN-N-OUT before grocery shopping.

Yea, since I didn't make these last week, here they are again this week. 

A new recipe that I didn't try last week. I'm excited to try it out!

This is a favorite in our household! I mean come on add bacon to anything and practically any man will eat it!

I hope you found a new recipe to try out this week. If you do try out a new recipe, let me know in the comments! You can also send me a picture of it either through Instagram or Facebook! Use the hashtag #tablefortwoplease so I can find your pictures easily! If you want more menu planning inspiration, check out!


  1. Don't you just hate eating the same thing everyday? I know I certainly do.
    This is a wonderful time of year when many bloggers are sharing their summer harvest.
    My husband and I will be heading to the farmers market in a couple of weeks. He actually wants to try his hand at making pickles. It should be fun for both of us.
    Have a delicious week

  2. I do hate eating the same thing everyday. The only meal I do eat the same thing is breakfast, but lunch and dinner must be different each day. Making pickles sounds like fun! I'm sure that will be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your husband. Hope it turns out great!

  3. Mmm - these meals sound great, especially the curry!! Thanks for visiting Romance on a dime!
