Menu Plan Monday 5-21-12

Great weekend! We went to my cousin's wedding Saturday and got to visit and watch the kids play.  This week will be very short, as we are getting ready to head out of town again on Friday to come and camp out at Grandpa's farm. 

Monday - Balsamic brown sugar pork chops- on the grill, three-cheese potatoes, green salad
Tuesday - Leftovers? Or quesadillas
Wednesday - Creamy caprese pasta
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - camping!

Lunches: turkey & swiss sandwiches, salads
Camping: s'mores, cracker/deli meat trays, snacks!  Hamburgers/hot dogs on Friday, milk can stew on Saturday, and a campfire breakfast Sunday.  No idea what milk can stew is but I guess we will find out!

Menu Plan Monday 5-14-12

I'm interested this week in trying something new. Health food! I've been reading about people who eat "clean" or "whole" foods, and people that go vegetarian for a few meals a week.  The thing I get from all of these people is that they feel so much better when they do this!  No more crap.

So I'm trying to eat healthier, not so much processed food. 

On top of that, I'm trying to eat less.  So here goes nothing!

Monday - Meatballs (breadless) in tomato sauce, pasta on side?
Tuesday - Taco salad, no shells
Wednesday - BLT's, chips
Thursday - meatless pizza?
Friday - trip home

Lunches:  spinach salad with cheese & ham or chicken, sun chips, diet dr. pepper

Sunday potluck - Chicken Pasta Salad with grapes & almonds
Snack - Apple pie popcorn

Menu Plan Monday 5-7-12

I've been making some fun food lately. Last week, we tried the balsamic spinach tortellini with chicken, and it was delicious! I didn't get great reviews from the hubby or kid (picky, picky), but I loved it and it's a great lunch leftover as well.

I did nachos on Thursday, and we ate out at Old Chicago on Friday.  We have been eating good around here (and sooner or later we need to get back on the healthy wagon, but for now we are enjoying ourselves!)

I have been paging my way through Ree Drummond's Food From My Frontier and this book is amazing. I may have to buy it (I just have a library copy today).

So this week's menu is going to be some of Ree's recipes:

Saturday - Peach-whiskey chicken on mashed potatoes
Sunday - Pasta with pesto cream sauce
Monday - Taco salads
Tuesday - (haircut for me)
Wednesday - Cheeseburgers (on the grill?), chips, veggie
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Out?
