Even the Good Enough Gourmet gets sick of menu planning. Every Sunday morning, I spend way too much time going through recipes trying to figure out what to make for the week. Enough, I thought last weekend. I’ll just plan out a month of menus and then I can go on auto-pilot for a few weeks. So I went through my tried and true recipes, and picked out my favorite fish, meat, pasta, chicken, and vegetarian recipes. I have 3-5 in each category, and each week, I’ll pick 5 recipes until I’ve cooked everything. Here was week 1:
- Pomegranate Molasses Salmon, roasted broccoli and cauliflower
- Sausage with Mustardy Potatoes
- Pasta with Caramelized Onions, salad
- Black Bean Soup, homemade tortilla chips
I only picked 4 recipes for this week because we had a few evening obligations. All recipes have or will be posted on Good Enough Gourmet, and I’ll post future weeks’ menus to give you ideas.
I’m loving auto-pilot so far!
