Meal Plan Monday

Here is our meal plan for this week!

Monday: Tacos

Tuesday: Free for all! I'll be at a meeting that provides dinner so Chris gets to find something in the kitchen :) love you babe.

Wednesday: Cripsy chicken over a creamy Italian bowtie pasta

Thursday: Free for all! I'll be at another meeting that provides dinner... Surely there will be left overs for hubby :)

Friday: date night at Mathew Kenney... We bought a groupon here a few weeks ago.

Saturday: Maple Glazed Salmon

Sunday: I can't remember this one :) it's at home in my planner opps.

PS the garlic roasted chicken pesto pizza I made last night was yummy but took WAY too much time. I may or may not have left the parchment paper on the pizza & cooked it on the crust. We may or may not then had to peel off the parchment paper.... UGH it was a slight kitchen fail.

Hope you guys have a happy Monday!

Meal Planning Monday

Hi! Do you remember me? I'm that girl who used to blog 3-4 times a week and then went on a blogging hiatus because life got BUSY. But I'm not going to go on and on and talk about how busy I am (because frankly I HATE it when people do that) everyone is busy right?!If you have a child or don't have a child... if you work or stay at home... EVERYONE.IS.BUSY. I'm sorry I left without notice but I think things have calmed down enough to blog a little more. Yippie Skippie! 

I have A LOT to catch you up on but I want to share with you something I am SO excited about. I know this isn't any new idea but Kari Beth has been blogging and tweeting about her weekly meal planning lately & well it inspired me! I tried it last week for the very first time and it went SO WELL. We only ate out 2 times.... which was in the plan :) So here is my plan from last 

Monday: Jamie Oliver's crunchy garlic chicken with sauteed spinach
Recipe found HERE thanks to pinterest 

This was SO good. We will be cooking it again.

Tuesday: Mac & Cheese with Spinach sauteed. I just used the Annie's brand it was white cheddar cheese with spiral noodles. I had something to go to tonight so I just needed something super fast and yummy. 

Wednesday: Lemon Garlic Angel Hair Pasta & steamed brocoli
Recipe found HERE thanks to pinterest 

I cooked the noodles a little too long... so it was just alright :)

Thursday: LEFTOVER Lemon Garlic Angel Hair Past
It was actually better warmed up the second day.

Friday: I was supposed to make Maple Glazed Salmon but I forgot we had a fundraiser dinner we had already purchased tickets to so we just ate there. I plan on making the salmon this week. 

Saturday: We planned on eating out for lunch & dinner because Chris's mom & her sisters came to visit us all day so we were out and about. I did bake Salted Carmel Butter Bars for our guests and they are SO YUMMY & SO SO BAD for you.

Sunday: Roasted Garlic Chicken Pesto Pizza
Recipe found HERE thanks to pinterest
This is tonights dinner! I have all my ingredients and I'll probably start cooking this very soon. The pizza crust is homemade so I'm a little nervous about this. I'll let ya know how it turns out. 

For breakfast I either had honey nut Cherrio's or a granola bar... Chris normally only eats a banana for breakfast. 

For lunch we packed our lunch everyday (both of us ALL.WEEK. this is a big deal for us) normally with a sandwich, apple cinnamon graham crackers or chips, yogurt and fresh raspberries. 

I'll blog tomorrow about our meal plan for this week. 

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday!
