New Series : What's for Dinner this Week

I'm staring a series this week that plagues me every single week... what to make for dinner.  I know, dinner is my 'thing' - I shouldn't struggle with what to make.  But, I do.  I think most people do.  For me, I get major burn out.  I get burnt out on trying new things.  I get burn out on making the old stuff.  And at the end of each season (like right now...) I get burnt out on that season's seasonal food.

Right now I am burnt out on comforting stews and heavy dinners.  In September I will be burnt out on heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil - which sounds impossible now.  Fresh, summer produce sounds amazingly refreshing, but I know when September rolls around I'll be blogging about how much I'm craving a big pot of chili in front of the fireplace.  It is inevitable. 

Where was I...

That's right.  The answer to the question - What's for dinner?  At the beginning of every week I'm going to (planning to...) post a weekly dinner plan.  So if you're ever struggling with what to make for dinner, you can click on this link : What's For Dinner (copy and paste the link someplace safe - I'll update that link every week with the new week's plan) and you'll have the answer.  Or at least an idea.  And, if you have some great dinner ideas - let me know!  Maybe I'll share a Reader's Choice idea each week, to.  What are you having for dinner this week?

This is what I'm planning :

Monday : Roasted Chicken Carbonara

Tuesday : Tomato Basil Soup & Grilled Cheese

Wednesday : Chicken with Olives and Angel Hair

Thursday : Thai Steak Noodle Salad & Shrimp Spring Rolls

Friday : Dinner Out... I'm thinking Mexican!

Saturday Morning : Banana Pecan Pancakes  (Dinner Out)

Sunday : Pan Seared Lemon Garlic Chicken & Chocolate Cream Pie with Pecan Shortbread Crust

    I tried "minnies chocolate pie" from the movie "the help" last weekend..

  4. I really love that idea, my mom and I often struggle with that but the real problem is that no one in my family likes chicken and they are quite difficult to please but thanks for sharing your plans

  5. i love this idea. i am always asking my family what they want because I get tired of being the one to decide
