Menu Plan Monday

Last week we did really well sticking to our menu plan. We did go out to eat one night for Owen's birthday so I pushed a meal off to this coming week. Otherwise we stayed with the meals I planned. Nothing came out of the freezer although I do need to add to my stockpile either this week or next week. And I felt horrible one night (as a result of not drinking enough water and not eating enough food) so Jon took over and grilled that night. I felt much better after drinking a HUGE glass of water and eating something. Note to self- you are pregnant, sometimes that means taking it a little easier!

On this week's menu:

Monday- Carolina Shredded chicken and cole slaw

Tuesday- homemade pizza

Wednesday- pasta and meatballs

Thursday- grilled keilbasa, rice and vegetables

Friday- date night in. I am going to feed the kids mac and cheese early. then they will watch a movie while Jon and I eat a Wanchai Ferry stiry fry that I have in the freezer and attempt some adult conversation!

Saturday- dinner out for my grandma's birthday. Since it is a nicer restaurant the kids are staying home with a babysitter and will eat fish sticks, apple sauce and carrot sticks

Sunday- leftover night

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of a "date night in." With no family nearby, we never have babysitters so this would be a great opportunity to eat some "adult" food and have some "adult" conversation. :-)

Great menu. We have some menu items in common this week.
