Here’s to Hoping!

I did my meal planning today. Meal planning has helped us with our budget and, really, our sanity. I love walking up to the fridge in the morning and I can see exactly what we’re having for dinner. If I need to, I can do prep in the morning (especially if there’s homemade bread, or something, involved).

Here’s the list for the week (I’m just including dinners–we usually wing lunch and breakfast):

Saturday: Lentil Tacos w/homemade tortillas.

Sunday: Spaghetti w/faux-meatballs and garlic bread (I’m going to make french bread for the first time. I’ll try this recipe).

Monday: Chickpea Burgers and Hasselback Potatoes

Tuesday: Butternut Ravioli

Wednesday: Stuffed Eggplant

Thursday: Pasta w/pesto and veggies

Friday: Homemade Pizza

I’ll post recipes and photos for my favs in the upcoming weeks.

On a side note, I’m REALLY excited for a garage sale in the morning. In South Africa, people don’t do the garage sale thing. But, a bunch of Americans are moving back to the States and having a yard sale. Do you think there’s any chance that someone will be selling Tootsie Rolls? They’re my favorite American candy and I’m totally out. Here’s to hoping!

What are you plans for the weekend?
