Meal planning check-in: Week ending 2/12

Well, here we go again.  What shall I make for dinner this week?
I finished the chicken soup from shabbat, and I feel like there is so much leftover food in the fridge from this weekend that needs to be creatively re-invented, so I feel like it's only right to use up that food before making fresh food...
I also want to make the pasta-tofu dish that was suggested in the comments here.  I think homemade pizza is in the plans for this week.  Maybe something with fish wraps?  We used to eat a lot of those when we were in grad school...

Maybe what I need to do is to make a list of my family's favorite recipes, and work from there?  Then I don't have to start from scratch every single week?

What are your family's favorite weeknight recipes?  Share in the comments box!

  1. Hi! Your friendly insane monthly menu planner here. Have you thought about fish patties (or, if you are feeling fancy, you can call them fish croquettes)? Serve over pasta with a sweet tomato puree, haricot vert a la fresca, and a light chardonay salad (ie pasta and ketchup, raw green beans, and green grapes) and you have a super kid friendly dinner that you can then make into a super kid friendly lunch... Plus, you have most of the ingredients on hand. :)
