The Buzz Breakdown

If you’re much like me and love “The Soup”, “E! News”, etc…I love when they do their week in review, best dressed/worst dressed and just an overall reflection of the past week so I thought I would put together my own Week in Review. I’m going to call it the Buzz Breakdown…

So last Friday I put some effort into planning our dinner recipes for the upcoming week to make my grocery shopping more efficient over the weekend with the ingredients I would need for the entire week, hence limiting my multiple trips to the grocery store throughout the week. I have to pat myself on the back and say that the planning actually was a success, as it should be , right? Lol, but it really did feel good to know that I had everything I needed in the fridge just ready for me to whip up. It also amazed me how many ingredients I had already had in my pantry and/or fridge from everyday things so budget wise, it was pretty too!

My Buzz Breakdown is below along with the recipes I used throughout the week. I know this won't always work but if I plan for 4-5 meals for the week, I’ll always have an extra meal here or there to whip up some other time since some days you have things to do after work or you go out to eat!
Sunday-Chicken Enchiladas (Kraft’s recipe with some minor tweaks on me end)

Monday-Asian Turkey Meatballs paired with white rice
Tuesday-out to dinner with Mom at Los Amigos
Wednesday-Anthony ended up grabbing a bite at work since he was working late and I was at the gym and got a mango tango smoothie on my way out and heated up some leftovers with another cooking creme I picked up last weekend (savory garlic, yum!) when I got home. Love love love their cooking cremes!
Thursday-Skinless chicken thighs  w/ shallots in red wine vinegar 
Friday-is Happy Hour at Tria Wine Bar in Philadelphia
As far as next week, I’m still working on my list as we speak, but I do know that I will be making the WW General Tso’s Chicken recipe which I’ve made before and it’s super quick and super delish!

Happy Friday bloggers and have a wonderful weekend!
