Meal plans are wonderful, but life happens. Here is a review of last week's eats and how it all turned out.
Previous Week (Meal Plan 8/16-8/22)
Last week I made everything on the meal plan, except Saturday's burgers. Everything was fantastic. I tried three new recipes (pasta with sun dried tomatoes, chicken tabbouleh, and meatballs) and can't wait to make them again. Look for upcoming recipe posts for the pasta and tabbouleh.
Meal Plan 8/23-8/29
We are going out of town on Saturday and need to use up leftovers. It is going to be a light cooking week.
Monday: leftover chicken piccata
Tuesday: pizza with dough from freezer
Wednesday: spaghetti with meatballs from freezer
Thursday: picadillo with white rice
Saturday: San Francisco ??
Sunday: San Francisco ??

I have procrastinated with the vacation planning. We will be gone two weeks. The week in San Francisco is booked since the husband has a conference. Any suggestions for how to fill up my days while my husband is occupied? I will have a 12 month old with me and we are staying in the Union Square area.
I have not yet booked the second week of the vacation. I am leaning toward a relaxing short stay near Big Sur somewhere, a return trip to Yosemite, and back to San Francisco for the last couple days to explore Muir Woods.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
