Monday… Is that you?!? 

How has another weekend just slipped on by already? The weekends never seem long enough.

Our meal plan this week includes:

When I do my weekly grocery shop, I try to plan meals around a type or cut of meat that I can purchase in bulk to use in a bunch of like-meals. This past week’s bulk purchase was ground beef. Mind you, I did purchase boneless skinless chicken breasts, too… I can’t pass up a good sale!
Last night, I was meant to make the roast. However, I got sidetracked with decorating my house and forgot to start my electric turkey roasting pan. Oops! Oh well… we wound up enjoying our first (and more than likely… only) festive special of the season. I’ll be preparing the roast to serve for dinner tonight. My husband isn’t going to know what hit him when he arrives home from work. 
What’s on your meal plan for this week? Do you have a meal you find you serve on a weekly basis?

    Now that I’m off on mat leave again, I’m looking forward to getting back into weekly meal planning! It definitely saves time & money and reduces food waste. Good idea re: buying a type/cut of meat in bulk and “theming” the week’s meals around that. If you get tired of that type of meat, you can always freeze portions too!
