Menu Plan...Blah, blah, blah...

Okay. I have far too many part-time, on-the-side projects going on right now, and no time to do them in. My deadlines have passed, and I'm overwhelmed. And the last thing my mind wants to do is create a menu plan for this week--I'd really rather the Dinner Fairy showed up at my house every night with something delicious to eat. Since I haven't heard from her in years, I'll settle for some suggestions: what are YOU having for dinner this week? If you have a whole plan, super! I'd love to see it in a comment. Even if you don't have a whole plan, one or two things that you plan to eat this week might make for a helpful suggestion for me and mine.

Next week, I'll post what we ended up eating this week, accompanied by whose suggestion the various meals were. And for the person who suggests the meal my family ends up loving the most, I've got a special prize!

So please plan my week for me!!!! Hope to see some comments soon.

(No, seriously, I need your help....soon.)

Oh man...I had no idea there was a menu plan fairy! WHY hasn't she visited me, like, ever? :P Generally, without a plan, everything around here hops in a handbaskey on the fast, here's what we've got going on this week:

monday: creamy pesto chicken and penne
tuesday: double decker tacos with guacamole and refried beans
wednesday: zen's delicious clam risotto (but with cockles instead)
thursday and friday and saturday, in no particular order:
broccoli stuffed chicken breasts
homemade pizzas
val's english muffin bread sandwiches or eggs benedict

we also have some veggies to use, sugar snap peas and green bean bundles will be making an appearance at some point. :)

Oh! I forgot to put down the chicken and veggie stir fry, too.

Okay, so am I the only one who flies by the seat of her pants and just makes up meals each afternoon based on what's in the pantry, freezer and fridge?? I doubt there will ever be a day when I am prepared enough to actually plan a whole week's worth of meals and then specifically shop for them. How you do it week after week after week just absolutely astonishes me, Cori. Quite honestly, I may have to stop checking your food blog, because it simply stresses me out. :-)
