Where available, I have linked to the recipes I am using. We are a family easily bored by repetitive food. I rarely cook the same dinner meal more than twice a month. Two of my favorite online resources for new recipes are http://foodnetwork.com/ and http://epicurious.com/. I like that they both allow users to rate each recipe and epicurious allows detailed comments and tips on each recipe by users. In my home notebook, I keep a running list of Sean's favorite meals. Cooking things that please Sean is a simple and great way to show him that he's appreciated when he comes home from a long day at work.

Your meal plan sounds delicious. We vary us the recipes a lot too and love trying new things. I think I may have to try several of the recipes you have linked to in this post. :o)

I, too, am married to a Sean. It's nice to see somebody else with the same spelling. Whenever my husband has to give his name for something, the other person always inquires "Is that with a 'wn' or a 'un'?" LOL.
