UPDATE: I wanted to give a little update on how our weekly meal plan was going. We have loved both things I made from the new cookbook. The steaks were so easy and so yummy. I ended up with a ton of leftover meat though so I made Noodle Junk to use it up instead of doing the Peanut Butter Chicken. I still plan to make that though. It will probably be later in the month.
The Minestrone was great and it did use up all the leftover veggies I had in the fridge. It made so much soup that I called my Mom to come get dinner for her and my Dad. The two of them ate, we ate, and we still have enough for another dinner or 3+ lunches.
Hope everyone's week is going well. It is FRIDAY!!! Whoo Hoo!
Yesterday in the mail I got my copy of Make it Fast, Cook it Slow. I was so excited I took it with me in the car to the wedding we attended. Not so that I could read it on the way since I get car sick extremely easy but instead just so I knew it was with me. Yes I was that excited! So you will see a theme in my meal plan this week. I went to bed with the book last night and started marking all the things I want to make. I settled on these for the first week.
