So I recently decided to really start to work at meal planning, and when I decided to start my husband disappeared for basically two weeks for work. So I didn’t feel like there was a reason for me to cook these fun meals for me to eat by myself. So I basically ate my normal “Paul’s out of town and I’m not cooking for myself” food… cereal, grilled cheese, hot dogs.. the usual. Really delicious stuff I tell ya!
So in my last post about meal planning, I only made 2 of the recipes, but they were both successful, and Paul said they should be made again. That’s a win! The shrimp scampi was great, and definitely a lighter pasta since it was an olive oil sauce and nothing creamy. Then I also made the Skillet Sausage Pasta, which turned out really well, but when I make it again I will definitely cut down on the amount of chicken broth it calls for.
I have no idea how women functioned prior to Pinterest… Seriously, it’s great.
So this week, our menu consists of the following meals… and you may notice a pasta theme… we’re blaming that on Aubrey…
- Grilled Jerk Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers – I actually made these Saturday night and they tasted great, but I also cheated and did not make the jerk sauce from scratch. I bought a marinade from the store… Way easier. Way faster. Win.
- Skillet Herbed Chicken and Tomato
- Tortellini Spinach and Chicken Soup – I’m curious to see how this turns out… I’m not a huge soup fan. This is purely for Paul 🙂
- Cajun Chicken Fettucini
Eventually I’ll let you all know how these turn out, and which ones are worth trying out yourself! Happy Cooking 🙂
