menu planning

so i'm working on this whole planning and prepping ahead of time so i will cook dinners and not resort to eating out during the week thing. on saturday i spent some time looking through my pinterest cooking board and some cookbooks and planned out the entire week. it took some time, but i'm thinking it'll tend to get easier and easier, especially as i find recipes that i like to repeat. on sunday while sunday night's dinner was cooking i prepped for the next two nights of dinner so that all i had to do tonight was actually cook it rather than spending 20 minutes or so prepping and then cooking. it was so nice after a long day of work to have an awesome dinner take a total of about 15 minutes. i have high hopes for this process to make dinner-making easier. i'm going to put my menu plan for this week below in this post and i will be posting really successful recipes throughout the week. any links within the menu are links to the original source of the recipe. enjoy!
