menu plans, highlight an ingredient


I let the ads tell me what to cook this week.  For each recipe, I chose one feature ingredient – canned tomatoes, mustard, cashews, pineapple & bacon – each of which inspired a dish to cook.  Being creative with meal planning helps keep us out of a rut and we end up with some fun new dishes to try!

You could do the same thing if there is an item you want to use up in the pantry.  Check expiration dates and then get creative with what you have on hand.
