  1. You have some lovely dinners planned! We're also having wraps of some sort this upcoming week, and something with black beans, but I'm not sure what. Yum!

    1. Tamara, you can use whatever chicken you have handy (grilled, rotisserie, etc.). I had chicken tenderloin strips that I marinated in soy sauce with a tiny bit of rice wine vinegar. I cooked the chicken in a skillet until no longer pink in the middle. In the meantime, I julienned carrots, green pepper and romaine lettuce (you could also use Napa cabbage) and set aside. I made a quick Asian sauce using hoisin sauce, chili sauce, soy sauce and a little warm water. On a flour tortilla, layer chicken strips and veggies and drizzle with the sauce. Roll up and enjoy. Yum!

  5. Love your menu! Full of variety; I should be better about making one as we often get stuck in Chicken and/ or Pasta rut!

  6. I love menu planning. It is such a huge help. We ended up eating taco leftovers last night since I was too tired to make our planned dinner last night.

    1. Oh, I'm sorry Leah. It can be hard to keep coming up with ideas, eh? I would be happy to share ideas with you, if you're interested. :)

  10. I love menu planning! I've found that not only do I not panic each day trying to figure out what we're going to eat, but I save money because I only buy what we need. Usually I do mine on Saturday, but I was out of town at my son's soccer games all day yesterday, so I really need to do it today.
