Meal Planning on a LJ/Blog Post

Sometimes, my cooking plans for the weekend get tossed out the window after going grocery shopping.

I was only going to pick up a few things … chocolate chips for a fudgy chocolate cake recipe I was going to try, butter milk for something. I can’t remember what it was right now. And tahini, black bean sauce and hoisin sauce. I didn’t end up with any of those, other than the tahini. I DID pick up a bunch of things to restock my pantry … cans of baked beans, chickpeas, black beans, refried beans and pasta sauce. A sleeve of jalapeno flavoured tostadas. Ground beef (and a hard taco kit) as well as a tray of pork chops and a package of Canadian bacon. And a couple of packages of potato gnocchi.

So, now I’ve got to rethink my plans for Sunday.

One thing is sure though. There’s a lot of good eating ahead.

PS: I also bought a treat. Strawberry Twizzlers.

PPS: The buttermilk was for whoopie pies which I was going to make before I decided on the fudgy chocolate cake.
