Hey Good Lookin, whatcha got cookin?

Yesterday I did my grocery shopping for the week and restocked our sad empty fridge. I gave my mom a lot of my produce when we left for Chicago so it wouldn't spoil. I don't think I've ever seen my produce drawer empty before. Anyway, in my effort to stock up and plan the weekly meals, I decided to plan lots of good meals for this week. With the holiday madness starting soon, I know that there will be several take-out nights or nights where we eat really simply. So I decided this week was a good week to cook well and try a new recipe or two. Here's the meal plan for the week:

last night: Meatloaf for Shawn, butternut squash soup for me, baked potatoes
tonight: Steak for Shawn, mushroom risotto and french bread (a new recipe from Jamie Oliver, it was delicious!)
Tuesday: Butternut Squash and walnut pasta, salad
Wednesday: Lemon Chickpea Stir-Fry (a new recipe emailed to me by Tim)
Thursday: Shawn's dinner night (I work late)
Friday: meat for Shawn, fish for me, veggies

What are you cooking this week? Tried any new recipes lately?

Today, after dropping off my billing for work and having lunch with Kellie at The Herb Box, I headed to Restoration Hardware (with a coupon) for stocking stuffers. They have some pretty fun little toys and gadgets that are perfect for adding to adult stockings. I also took advantage of Cyber Monday with a couple online purchases. Cross a few more things off my ever growing December to do list.

I posted a tutorial for this little project on Scrapgal today. Head to the Galblog for instructions on how to make them.




Happy December!
