Meal Planning Monday (& The Vow!)

Meal planning was a huge success for me last week so I'm back at it again this week. It was really nice to not have to think about what to make during the week and it was also really nice to have all of the ingredients on hand too. For me, meal planning is definitely worth it and my husband is enjoying it too. He likes looking forward to what's on the menu, kind of like when you were in school and they posted what was for lunch that week...ohhhh memories!

Tuesday: We have dinner reservations at an Italian restaurant for Valentine's Day!

Wednesday: Giada's Chicken Piccata

Thursday: I'll be out of town. So dinner will be either takeout, Uncle Ben's Instant Rice, or pasta

Friday: I'll be getting back into town, and we usually have takeout on Fridays anyway.

Saturday: Brushetta Grilled Chicken

Sunday: "Let's Make a Baby Pasta" w/ Sausage
How about that for a title? I found this recipe in Glamour magazine and according to the article it works! Click Here for the recipe.

We went to see The Vow on Saturday night and it was so good! It was sappy, sweet, romantic, everything you could ask for in a date night movie for this time of year. I love Rachel McAdams and who doesn't love Channing Tatum?!
Have you seen it yet? What did you think of it?



  1. YAY! So glad meal planning went well for you. It's so nice not having to think about it all week, isn't it?

    Can we please talk about this Baby Making Pasta? I didn't know you were trying to hop on the baby train. :)

    Also, I'm dying to see The Vow, I'm hoping to go this week sometime.

  2. I have told myself over and over again to start meal planning again...I used to do it and it was so helpful!! Good for you for sticking to it!! I am dying to see "The Vow" looks like the perfect chick flick! Have a great day!!

  3. I was wondering if this is going to be a good movie!! I will have to go see it soon!!!

    Happy Valentine's Day!
