Here I am, a Menu Plan Monday-Virgin. I decided last week that I wanted to start getting more organized when it comes to meal-planning (and eating!) in our house so I tried it on my own last week. It was definitely a success becuz not only did I grocery shop more efficiently (and less expensively!) but I also managed to lose a pound, cuz I wasn't eating tons of take-out or "easy dinners" which are usually super fattening. Then I found the OrgJunkie's Menu Plan Monday and realized that participating will totally expand upon my recipe box...and I'm hooked! To see what it's all about go here and check it out!
And without further adieu, here is my first week's plan:
I have dentist appt. at 7:00pm so we need quick and easy for dinner! Plus soft to chew since I'll probably still be numb LOL I'm thinking some soup and/or grilled cheese sandwiches.
Easy Garlic Chicken
w/steamed peas/carrots mix and lemon herb rice
Shepard's Pie with Pillsbury Reduced Fat Dinner biscuits
Cheeseburgers (no buns) with curly fries
Apple Butter Pork Loin (made this before and it's delicious!)
w/ baked sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli
Super Bowl Sunday...we have company coming over so I'll be putting together some appetizers. Maybe a veggie plate with dip and some chicken wings. And plenty of beer. :-)
