So Pinteresting!

I'm linking up with Michelle today for some of my latest and greatest pins!  If you'd like to follow me on Pinterest, click the button in my sidebar ---->

Today I'm going to pin some recipes in hopes that it will inspire me to try them out!  I've been trying a lot of new recipes and I want to continue to add to my recipe binder!

I have loose "guidelines" for my meal planning to make it easier to choose meals for each weekday.  We have Pasta Monday, Taco (or anything Mexican) Tuesday, Whatever Wednesday, Crockpot Thursday, and Free Choice Friday.  Obviously I gave up on Wednesday and Friday b/c I just wanted some alliteration in the planning process.  That's ok gives me some flexibility in planning!

Here are some ideas for Pasta Monday.

Hopefully I'll try out some of these recipes soon and let you all know how they taste!

Do you meal plan?  How do you choose meals?



  1. Oh my word- you have my tummy growling now!

  2. Mmmm potato soup looks yummy! I would do a side salad with it though because I *try* to watch the amount of carbs I serve to the hubs!

    I meal plan but just write down different meals to last us a week and we pick from the list each set days like you :)

  3. Found your blog through the linkup. Cute pins!! The baked spaghetti looks amazing! Hope you have a great day! :)
