It’s time for me to get back at it. My kitchen renovation is close to being completed. We are just waiting on the builder to install our replacement pantry and finish painting. Too bad they don’t have a timeline for the exact completion date. At the very least we finally have our counter top. That’s a far cry from the situation we were in a few weeks ago! So really… I can’t let the fact that products from my pantry are littered in boxes throughout my house hold me back from meal planning and enjoying home cooked meals. Eating out just isn’t practical, nor is it budget friendly.
Last week one of my close friends, Marlene, from Mission to (Another) Marathon shared with me a chili recipe that she loves. Obviously, I couldn’t not include the chili on the menu plan this week. My family is die-hard chili lovers, so having a variance in the chili’s we enjoy throughout the cooler months is key. It prevents meal boredom. Who doesn’t love to shake things up a little bit from time to time?! I certainly do! That’s the fun of cooking.
Also on the menu this week… tacos (Taco Tuesday, anyone?!?), stuffed peppers and biryani chicken.
It’s going to be a yummilicious week full of family favorites!!
What are some of your family’s favorite meals?
