Well, here we are with the ol' weekly menu plan. I am optimistic that this week will go a little better than my botched meal planning attempt last week. Once again, I don't really have any new and/or exciting recipes to try out for our dinners. In fact, I am actually throwing some missed meals back on the schedule that we did not get to have last week due to our family illness. I already have the groceries...so what the heck!
I have also noticed that as my pregnant belly increases it's girth, my motivation to cook actually decreases. I am really keeping my fingers crossed that by this time next year, I will be back to a daily blogging schedule and trying new recipes once again. By that time, my babies will be around 7 months old and our family will have hopefully adjusted to the new "normal"...whatever that will encompass. So for now, I am sticking with the easy and familiar. Maybe someone out there on the World Wide Web will actually get an idea from one of my basic, repeat meals. Alright, enough chit-chat...here is my menu plan. I hope everyone has a great week!
Weekly Menu Plan: 11/01/09-11/07/09

Thursday, 11/05: Leftovers/No Dinner (My friend, Claire and I are going to the Pioneer Woman book signing....hooray!!!)
Friday, 11/06: Jen's Chicken Paprika (sorry, no recipe...old family secret)
Saturday, 11/07: Steaks on the grill, baked potatoes, steamed veggies TBD
I just noticed that there are really no recipe links to this week's meals. It seems that the link was either covered in my post from last week, or there is simply not a recipe link available. Woo-hoo...that means less work for me!
