Weekly Menu

When Jacin and I were newly married, planning and cooking meals each night was a fun challenge. I kinda enjoyed it. Now that I'm a wife AND mother, planning and cooking meals is a bit harder. I would much rather spend my time with Jacin and JBird than spend it cooking in the kitchen. Often, however, the "quick fix" dinners are more expensive and not so good for you. Have I mentioned that I cannot fit into any of my dress pants? Not good. 

This week, we're having the same old standby staple meals - quick, easy, and inexpensive - because we have something going on EVERY night after work. So here's what's on tap for this week:

Sunday: Waffles and Bacon (they were SO very yummy!)
Monday: Jayla's Bday! Dinner at the Burns'. (Spaghetti and Salad!)
Tuesday: Steak Salad (Thanks for the steaks, Aunt Deb!)
Wednesday: Tacos (Thanks for the Taco Kit, Mom!)
Thursday: Grilled Chicken & Veggies
Friday: Quesadillas (or "Dillas" as I call them)
Saturday: Out to Eat! The location depends on the coupons I can dig up...

And Saturday morning it will start all over again with menu planning and grocery shopping for next week. If you have any exciting ideas for yummy yet low fat meals, let me know!

  1. Sounds exactly like us! I will send you some recipes soon. We like the famous Marguerite Nesbitt Tater Tot Casserole. I have a version that I made when I was doing Thrive that is much healthier. Does Jacin like broccoli? I have a good chicken and rice dish with broccoli that Terry loves!

    Oh and I noticed you went krogering...make sure you register your Kroger card online and they will send you coupons for things that you always buy. I save those up for when they put things 10 for $10. About every other month they send me a coupon for a free item or $3.00 off a $15 produce purchase which is very nice.
