What's Cookin' This Week: 9/5 - 9/11

 Time to seriously jump on the meal planning bandwagon again... I started to let it slide and the result this past week was two-fold:  we spent way more money than I'd intended 'grazing' the grocery store to see what looks good.  Since we are trying to eat local, raised ethically, and in season, which tends to cost more, we simply cannot afford to let our eyes and stomach whimsically shop for us.  We kinda really busted the budget on that trip.  In addition, today we got busy, the day slid by and suddenly it was 6:30 without a thought in our heads about what to eat, and too tired to try to put anything together - so we ate out.  Which is fine when it's intentional, but it's a terrible way to deal with not having planned dinner.

So no more of that!  This week's meal is meant to make use of what I know we have on hand, because I don't think we can financially deal with yet more shopping to turn our ingredients into meals.
