Menu Planning: On the Road

I write this as we head back to Greensboro from a trip to spend some time with my dad and his family, followed by a night at my mom’s and a run along the Potomac.

All of that to say, menu planning on the road is…interesting.

Tonight, we’ll go with our favorite “we just rolled back into town and we’re starving” spot, Lindley Park Filling Station. We’ll need to pick up a few things at the store, but our typical big shopping trip won’t probably happen tonight. Also, we’re heading to the beach at the end of the week, so this week we decided to just go easy on the meals.

We have some leftover Sweet Potato and Peanut Burgers from last week, so we’ll definitely have those again.

Earth Fare has Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon on sale for the next couple of days and we have some shrimp in the freezer, so our other choices are Grilled Salmon with Roasted Corn Relish and Skillet Shrimp with Orzo, Asparagus, and Feta.

Fortunately, we keep track of our recipes using a shared folder in Dropbox. Since we knew what we wanted our primary ingredients to be this week, I was able to use my phone to search for salmon and shrimp recipes we have already had success with. It was a huge help!

Does anyone else use an online filing system for keeping track of recipes?

    I love the idea of using Dropbox that way! I have a variety of recipes pinned, or printed in a recipe box, or all over my blog plus several go to recipes in cookbooks- not a great system. 🙂

      We also keep a big binder at the house which has print-outs of many of our favorite recipes with notes about what we do differently. We pull from there when it is time to do the actual cooking!
