Most days of the week, starting at around 3-3:30pm I start feeling extremely anxious. I start roaming around the house, thinking and stewing over WHAT TO MAKE FOR DINNER. I love cooking but have a really hard time with coming up with things to make. Not just coming up with things, but also coming up with a dish that I already have all the ingredients for.
So this week I'm trying something out. I've made up a menu for the week. I've made a list with all the ingredients I need for this weeks meals. Tomorrow, I'm going out and getting all the ingredients.
My goal: Stick to this menu and have yummy dinner made with no stress and the usual "what do I maaaakkkeeee????" ordeal every night of this week.
Will I make it? I don't know. Am I excited? Yes I am.
So, here is my Menu:
Monday: Rosemary Kebabs and Cesar Salad.
Tuesday: Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Wednesday: Tuna Casserole (but with chicken instead, so I guess, chicken casserole?)
Thursday: Caldo Verde
Friday: Stromboli (so excited for this one!!!) & simple salad.
Sunday: Roast Chicken with potatoes, salad and rolls
All new recipes I will post on my recipe blog.
I'm really excited about this, I sat for over an hour today figuring out what to make and what I'll need. I'm sure this will take a big load off my shoulders - only Johan, and Thomas (he hears all my wining about not knowing what to make until Johan gets home) know what a headache this usually is for me.
So - wish me luck.
And tell me: Do you keep a weekly/monthly dinner calendar menu? How do you plan your meals?
