Meal plan Sep 16-25, 2011

Back to school has kicked my a$$. It’s been BUSY. Lacking a concrete meal plan has not helped. Then yesterday I got the latest issue of Everyday Food from who else but Martha. So I am dedicating the next week and a bit to this issue. I have to say I am pretty excited to try these recipes. I already made the curried cauliflower and it was ok. Sort of bland, but if you don’t like a strong curry, then this may be the dish for you. The kids hated it.

You will notice that I haven’t been including lunches during the summer. But guess who’s baaaack, well sort of next week I will add the lunch menu that I have been working hard on all summer (hah who’s kidding who, pbj anyone?)  At least I don’t have to brown bag them!

All these recipes are from the latest issue of Everday Food, and likely not on the website, so I am not including any links here.  But if I ever to putting together another post about them there you will have them.  I am so pleased with this 10 day plan, that I may repeat it, in which case I will include the links.
