One of the benefits of menu planning is that sometimes you can slide some of your planning from last week into this week. And then you can handwave the rest by saying “I’ll figure it out when I get there”. That’s how menu planning works, right? I’m so good at this!
- Tamales. Yea, we never got around to making these last week, because they’re a lot of work and I was tired on the nights we planned to have them. So we’re planning to have them tomorrow, and I’m going to pre-make some of the stuff this evening.
- Fish. There’s a really good fish market not too far from where we live, so I usually just go and see what looks good on the day of, and plan the meal from there. I think I might make some roasted potatoes or something with this, though.
- Grilled chicken something-or-another. We have a couple extra chicken thighs, I’ll do something fun with them. (That totally counts).
- Honey Mustard Chicken. It’s been a while since we’ve done this, and it’s pretty easy to do in a small kitchen, so hey!
