Meal Plan - Week 8

Hip, hip hooray ... it's that time again ... time to plan what delicious meals I'll be shopping for, preparing, eating, sharing with my family, and cleaning up in the next week. Okay, that last part is totally not true. I won't be cleaning up the mess after mealtime because my awesome husband does that. We have an "I cook, you clean" philosophy that is really and truly delightful. Honestly, it's the only way I cook, and I feel blessed to have a husband who complies agrees :)

Oh, and my wonderful MIL will be cooking one night. So really, I have it pretty easy, just the way I like it!

Anyway, let's get to the good stuff. And I do mean good stuff because - thanks to my friend Tammy, who apparently keeps magazines for much longer than I do - I have two new recipes to try from the March 2007 Real Simple magazine.

Sunday - Date Night at my MIL's insistence

And really who am I to argue with that?
Just have to figure out which restaurant to try ... perhaps that fabulous little Greek place downtown ... you know how I love the Soulvaki!

Monday - My MIL's Famous Beef Brisket

I am not sure if I have permission to post this recipe. I'll check and get back to you. This is an absolute favorite meal of mine ... except when she served it for Christmas dinner when I was newly pregnant with NHV and had a strong aversion to beef.

This is one of those Real Simple recipes I mentioned. I have a ton of spinach to use up, and there's something about a potato dumpling that has my tummy all-a-twitter ... it's probably a pregnancy thing :)

Wednesday - Hamburgers on the Grill, Fresh Veggies, & Mac-n-Cheese

I am going for an old standard here ... especially since I am trying two new recipes this week.

Thursday - Final Evening Concert at the Park ... and Picnic

Can it really be the end of August already?! Ugh! Haven't decided what I'll pack ... but I think I am over the KFC thing, so we'll have to try something different ... Jimmy John's perhaps? :)

Second Real Simple recipe, and the photo alone has my mouthwatering ... I really hope this one is as good and simple as it looks!

Saturday - Leftovers / Helpy-Selfy
