meal planning monday.

last week's meal plans were a success! we managed to mostly stick with it...

tonight's dinner (pictured above) was slow cooked osso bucco. i had a hair appointment straight after work and knew that i wouldn't want to cook when i got home. i was right. it was definitely worth getting up the extra 10 minutes early...

tomorrow night, there're some chicken schnitzels in the fridge, dying to be made into delicious parmigianas! i'm craving a pub style meal. lots of salad and some crispy oven chips. yep. that'll do it!

wednesday night, i'm going to pop some chicken in the slow cooker with some herbs and spices to make creamy paprika chicken. perfect quick meal before i head off to ncb!

thursday night, valentine's day! bb and i are planning to head out to a local cafe that's recently started opening for dinner with a cool twist! can't wait to try it out!

friday night, i'm working! so i'll whip up a curry before i start. that way i can take some to work for dinner and bb will have something to eat when i get home. win/win :D

i'm working all day saturday (and sunday, my one full weekend for the month, sigh) so i'm hoping bb cooks something delicious for us. hopefully both nights. a girl can dream right?

what are your meal plans for the week? do you cook in a slow cooker?

inspired by this lovely lady!

slow cooker was my best friend when I worked, especially in winter. Think it will be again soon, so I can make up a pot full and then freeze portions. Wonderful Idea.

I don't use a slow cooker. I just make meals that take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. :) Got 4 inches chopped off my hair this past week. Feels so much better. Hope you find some moments for relaxation between all the work. Best wishes, Tammy
