Menu Planning Monday: 6/24/2013

Yep, so just as I'm praising myself for keeping up with blogging, life happens. I didn't blog for the past week and half because of two reasons. 1.) I honestly did not feel up to it and I didn't want to post something just to post. 2.) My grandfather passed away and I needed to just take some time for myself. So yes, we can plan to blog 3 times a week every week for the rest of our lives, but sometimes life happens and we need a break.

Weekly High & Low

Low: In the past couple weeks, I think I've only cooked maybe 3 times. Mainly because I've been out of town.

High: Honestly, the fact that I cooked at least once last week. It's better than nothing!

Weekly Meal Plan

I loved these sooo much a few weeks back that I have to make them again!

Tuesday: I'm at school tonight so it's fend for yourself night.

Wednesday: Once again at school for the night, so good luck hunting for food hubby!

If you love Thai peanut sauce, you definitely should give this recipe a try!

I'm actually quite excited to cook again this week! If you would like more ideas for meal planning, check out OrgJunkie! What are you cooking up in your kitchen this week?

Chicken Tikka Masala

Do you love savory and flavor packed food? Well I suggest you try Indian food if you already haven't found this delectable food yet. Indian food is hearty with tons of different flavors! Oh and of course it's spicy! Ok, so it's spicy as in temperature wise, but also just has a ton of different spices. This is one of the main reasons why Isaac fell in love with Indian food. Today, I'm going to show you how to make one of the most popular Indian dishes....

Menu Plan Monday: 6/9/2013

I'm quite proud of myself to be honest. I've been blogging quite regularly for the past two weeks! I think this is the longest amount of time that I've continuously blogged! I've finally come up with a schedule that allows me to blog, work on school, and keep my life sane. Ok, let's get on with this post now.

Weekly High & Low:

Low: I will say I did a bit better as far as actually cooking than last week. I didn't make one meal last week which was the Healthy Burritos. I've given up on making them for awhile now.

High: If you read Friday First Impressions: Greek Turkey Burgers, well then you know that this was our favorite meal from last week! Seriously these burgers were out of this world!!! I can't wait to make them again because they were so good. Just go read that post to know all the juicy details about those burgers!

Weekly Meal Plan

Trying out another new recipe! Let's hope it turns out great!

Tuesday & Wednesday: Fend for yourself night
I have clinical til 9:30pm each night so we are just eating dinner on our own these nights. I don't like it, but oh well.

So only two meals planned for the week, I think I'll be able to handle that. If you want to find more meal plan ideas, go check out! What do you have planned to cook this week?

First Friday Impressions: Greek Turkey Burgers

So I know I said last week that the Tomatillo Salsa Steaks we tried last week were by far the best new recipe we tried. Well, yea I take that back.... This week's recipe was out of this world!!!! Seriously, I'm sitting here thinking about it and wishing that I still had more of it. Ok, to keep you from waiting in suspense let's get on with the review of...

Greek Turkey Burgers

Ok, don't judge by this picture because it's seriously hard to take a good mouth watering picture of a burger. Go on you try it!

Lemon Chicken & Broccoli

I've realized that the majority of the food I make either has an exotic flavor or nice good kick of spiciness. Well, every once in awhile I'll take a pretty simple dish and add a nice kick to it. This is essentially what I've done with this dish. Now, if you don't care for the kick then you can simply leave it out and I know this will taste just as good. Alright, let's jump into my kitchen!

Menu Plan Monday: 6/2/2013

Well, we've successfully made it to yet another Menu Plan Monday! I'd like to have some feedback from you guys on whether or not you like these posts? Do you have any suggestions on what I should include in these posts? Or do you have questions about menu planning in general? Just let me know in the comments or you can send me an email through my contact me page above. Thanks!

Weekly Highs & Lows:

LowSo as far as cooking last week, that did not go so well. I only cooked two out of the four days. Hey, life happens and some times you just can't have a home cooked meal. It's ok though and you just try to do better the next week.

High: The simple fact that I was able to cook at two times last week. I didn't end up making the Black Bean & Spinach Enchiladas because by the time the chicken was done, I was tired and said screw it let's just eat the chicken as tacos. At least, it was a home cooked meal and that always makes me happy!

Alright, so what am I going to try and cook this week!

I don't have a picture for the Greek Turkey Burgers yet because it's a new recipe. Whoo hoo!

Tuesday: Healthy Burritos
Since I didn't make these last week, here they are again. Hopefully they will be made!

Wednesday: At the hospital. I start a new clinical rotation this week and I won't be getting out until late so no need to make dinner. Believe it or not I'm actually quite sad about this.

That is what planned and next Monday you'll find out what actually got made! I'm gonna place my bet on everything, but you never know.... If you would like to check out more menu plans, go to OrgJunkie! What was your high and low from last week?
