Weekly Meal Plan

I can’t believe we’ve lived in Portland for over 13 months now! One of the biggest changes we made when moving here was cooking. Yes, when we lived in San Francisco we rarely cooked for ourselves. No we didn’t live off Ramen like the common college stereotype. We lived off of tacos. And burritos. And nachos. Sort of came with the territory since we lived in the Mission District. Now I cook dinner everyday. The biggest help has been creating a meal plan and shopping from it once a week. I love the meal plans created for you in Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food Magazine, and usually use that once a month (except for when it involves expensive cuts of meat…) Other times I just make up my own meal plan based on whatever I’m craving. [This week, it was salmon, so that comes into play twice, haha.] Here’s this week as an example:

You may have noticed that my “weekly” meal plans are only 5 days long…yeah I’ve just found that’s the time frame that works best for us [sometimes we take a night off of cooking to go to a friends house or just eat leftovers]. You may also have noticed that all the recipes this week are from Everyday Food. Yeah, what can I say-I subscribe to the cult of Martha. πŸ˜‰ Plus those recipes aren’t even really recipes per say, more like methods of cooking, and they often use less than 5 ingredients.

  1. Dude. Not kidding, we eat virtually identical meals during the week. Last night was chicken and Brussels sprouts and brown rice, night before was artichokes and (you guessed it) chicken, and I’ve been craving salmon! I guess I should pick some up πŸ™‚

    Also, IS IT TIME TO PLANT TOMATOES YET? YES???
