I fell off the menu wagon a few weeks ago but I'm back on it as of today. Life sure is a whole lot easier if I take the time to come up with a menu, make a grocery list and then go shop. There's something about having all the ingredients on hand and knowing what I'm going to cook when I get home that I find a lot of comfort in.
May is a very busy month for us due to it being the last month of school, plenty of high school and college graduations plus their parties to attend, and swim team starts the last week. I've got lots of extra activities and meetings on the calendar so I'm not sure how much time I'll have to commit to this here blog. When life gets busy and something has to give, it's usually the blog that lands at the bottom of the list.
Rather than posting my menu for one week, I'm going to provide a list of the meals that I have ingredients on hand for.
