Meal Plan and Grocery List 3/9- 3/15

We had two really nice days last week- a glimpse of Spring. I got all excited about the weather while making my meal plan and put in three meals that I would traditionally make on the grill. We'll see how that goes. I think that I saw something about a chance of flurries tomorrow. Oh well. Guess my broiler is going to get a workout. I am completely and totally ready for grilling season to be here! On Tuesday, I'm featuring another guest cook. My friend Staycie will be serving up a Mexican Lasagna that she came up with in her kitchen last week. I can't wait to see! So here's the plan:

Monday March 9th

Spicy Tuna & Linguine with Garlic and Pine Nuts

Tuesday March 10th

Mexican Lasagna courtesy of my guest cook, Staycie

Wednesday March 11th

I haven't decided on the side yet...maybe a risotto and/or a vegetable medley of some sort.

Thursday March 12th

Chicken Enchiladas

Friday March 13th

Pizza Night

Saturday March 14th

Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburgers

Sunday March 15th

I can only hope to be as organized as you are one daywith my meal planning. Hats off to you!

Thanks Donna! It's not so bad... this way I only have to actually think about what's for dinner once a week. The rest of the time I just know. I like just knowing...

Hey-I hope you had a nice reunion with FFH.

Man, do I wish I could be as organized as you are. I do plan meals, but for some reason cannot stick to my plan. You're an inspiration!

I love your blog, Krista! I really have no business in the kitchen, but you have inspired me :) I have actually been cooking and enjoying it. Everything is so yummy! I haven't yet got the "planning" down, still running to the store every other day....Oh well, one step at a time :)

Ya'll are making me blush with word's like "inspiration". Thank you, thank-you!

Jess, I bet you're just fine in the kitchen. But really, that's why I do the step-by-step pics and explanation. Part of it is the "home ec" teacher in me, I just can't help "over-explaining", but also it's because I know that everyone has the potential to throw these meals together, it's just easier with a visual.

Thanks girls!
