Oh, man! What am I going to make this week? Bah! I, honestly, am not sure. My menu plan is much like this lighthouse – ONE mile AWAY from the water. (Think I’m kidding? Read this.)
And my menu plan? AT LEAST a mile away from my brain and creativity. You see, being the end of the month, this means reaching back in to the cupboards and figuring it out from there. As I mentioned before, I menu plan after I peek at the contents of my fridge first. This week is no different.
What makes this more interesting, however, is this: I can easily see what I purchased because it either (1) looked good or (2) was on sale (like my 2 for 1 honeydew melons in the fridge now) and NOT because they were on a previous menu plan. Are you seeing the problem yet?
Yes. I have a fridge with orphaned veggies and fruit… and random other things. And hardly a creative whimpering thought to be had.
Ah well. Better get it together, right?
A million thanks to M-Elle from Cooking & Uncooking who is hosting this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap. You, my friend, are obviously feeling more organized than am I. And for that, I thank you!
So what’s for dinner this week? After a brief review of ideas (which are few and very, VERY far between tonight), here’s the “plan” (And yes, I’m using those quotation marks with great liberal abandon!):
Monday: Wild Rice and Ham Soup
Tuesday: Coconut Shrimp with Stuffed Bell Peppers
Wednesday: Lettuce Wraps OR Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwiches…or BBQ pork pizza? I dunno!
Thursday: Red Chile Chicken Enchiladas with homemade corn tortillas
