Meal planning

Meal planning is a big deal. It can guide your shopping list, which coupons you use and which you save, and what you thaw from the freezer. We're usually pretty good about meal planning and since neither of us are real picky eaters, that helps.

There's a big difference in the "his list" and "her list" from before we were married, but we're making it work. For instance, I rarely ate frozen pizza, but he ate it at least two nights a week. I would make one big meal like lasagna, freeze half and still eat the other half for three days (lunch and dinner) straight. Now, a lasagna might last us for three dinners for two people. Needless to say, our grocery bills have gone up.

This week, you can plan on seeing the following recipes:
  • Beef Stroganoff - based on, but not exactly this recipe from Gina at Skinnytaste.com
  • JalapeƱo Roll Up appetizers (card night for the guys) - based on this recipe from Sally's blog, My Homemade Life
  • Slow cooker Breakfast Casserole (for tailgating!) - based on this recipe from a Latte with Ott, A
 Now I'm hungry...
