The Meal Planner

Being a new mom and having a toddler in the house is making for some pretty busy days. Every time I sit down to my laptop to type up the meal plan someone needs milk, a diaper change or tears to be soothed. I'm all about easy lately and since my time is precious my meals are reflecting that. Except for the authentic taco day...that one is for Steve. And for my own piece of mind to test recipes for our upcoming International Dinner.

Day 1: Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Crusty Buns
A friend was telling me how she had made a delicious cauliflower soup and I got the itch to make my own.

Day 2: Tortellini Soup
We're taking Eva to a Doctor's appointment right around supper time so this will be an easy no-effort meal when we get home.

Day 3: Smoked Almond Chicken with Rice and Sesame Stir-Fried Veggies
This is an idea I had awhile ago and now I'm going for it.

Day 4: Slow Cooker Honey-Mustard Lime Chicken over Rice with Steamed Broccoli
An incredibly easy meal to just throw in the crock pot for the day.

Day 5: Authentic Mexican Tacos with Guacamole, Pico de Gallo & Refried Beans
This month's International Dinner Club country is Mexico. I'm trying out recipes before the actual dinner.

    Your menu STILL looks yummy! I'm a huge fan of curry so I can't wait to see your thoughts and recipe for that. Also..authentic tacos? What makes them authentic?

  2. My husband spent a couple summer's in Mexico when he was a kid and drool's over authentic taco's. Basically they are a stripped down version of the taco's we eat: no taco seasoning, no cheese, no sour cream...just corn tortilla's, beef, onions and cilantro. The first time I had them I was totally not used to the simplicity of them. I'm thinking that with homemade salsa (pico de gallo) and guacamole that they'll be really great.
