Meal Plan Monday – April 7th 2014

And we are back with another meal plan! Last week I never got around to posting our dinners for the week as I was out of commission with a nasty head cold. It came out of nowhere, knocked me on my butt for 3 days, and suddenly I was fine…very very strange, but better than having it drag on for a week!

This week we are eating pretty well, I spent a small fortune on fresh fruit; this baby is craving berries, and melon, and pears right now! It makes snacking easy, when all I have to do is grab some fruit!

I’m planning on trying some new recipes this week, and of course I will share them with you! A baked oatmeal breakfast casserole, and sharing my secret to the crispiest roasted potatoes you’ve ever had!

Here is what we are eating this week:

Monday – grilled pork chops with crispy roasted potatoes and garden salad

Tuesday – turkey and red pepper quiche with buttered sweet peas and garden salad

Wednesday - my famous spaghetti

Thursday – tacos

Friday – baked lemon and herb fish with spinach and tomato pasta

Meal Plan Monday – March 24 2014

Can you believe March is nearly over? I hardly can! Time is just flying by, as we have been busy, and are only going to get more busy! With spring comes more time outside, my son starting baseball, and eventually this baby arriving this summer. August seems so far away, but At almost 19 weeks, I am almost half way through this pregnancy! We had an ultrasound today, and all looked good, we are truly blessed to be given yet another healthy baby.

This week is jam packed with skating lessons, pj/movie parties, and inching towards being done with our big fancy cable company. Today we had the HD antenna installed on our house! We have given out notice to the company, and will be officially done with them in April, I am working on the post right now that will explain what we have done, and how we are going to save so much money, so watch for that coming very soon.

Here is what we are eating this week:

Monday – baked chicken with veggies fried rice

Tuesday – roasted chicken with broccoli and crispy roasted potatoes

Wednesday - Bill Clinton’s favourite enchiladas (this is one of my husbands all time favourite meals! I’ll be using leftover chicken from Tuesday’s roast)

Thursday – grilled pork chops with potato salad and garden salad

Friday – baked lemon and herb fish with parmesan rice and garden salad

Meal Plan Monday – March 17th 2014

Happy St Patrick’s Day! How many of you are wearing green today? I’m not, but my son did wear green to school today. Oh school, so glad to have it back! My kids did not handle that break from routine very well, so here’s hoping this week goes smoother!

Please keep an eye out for a great post this week (or next) about how we are leaving a big national company for phone/tv/internet, switching to smaller and less conventional options to cut our monthly bill in HALF! It’s a very exciting time in our house, because this also means an iPhone for me! Bring on all the apps :) so please, I’d love to hear what your fav apps are for staying organized, meal planning, even recipes!

Here is what we are eating this week:

Monday – healthy homemade sloppy joe’s and salad

Tuesday – steak and veggie stir fry with garlic lemon noodles

Wednesday – my famous spaghetti

Thursday – Mexican loaded sweet potatoes

Friday – salmon with rice and garlic green beans

Meal Plan Monday – March 10 2014

It’s March Break here in our house, meaning my son is off school all week, and I am trying to keep both kids entertained to keep the fighting at a minimum. So far so good, but it’s only Monday…

This weekend was pretty big in our house; we moved my daughter out of her crib in the “nursery” and into a twin bed in the now “big kid bedroom” (formerly my son’s bedroom). Changing what we call the rooms sure has helped with all of this, so has letting them help decorate the room and pick what toys they keep up there too. Naps and bedtime have been a breeze so far, and I’m hoping it keeps up. And speaking of that room re-decorating, I will have a post for you later this week, how we turned my son’s room into a shared boy/girl room for very little money! LOTS of pictures, so stop by later in the week for that!

As for now, here is what we are eating this week:

Monday – cottage pie (a tweaked Jaime Oliver shepperd’s pie recipe from his Great Britain cookbook, using ground beef)

Tuesday – beef tortellini with bacon and broccoli, garlic toast and garden salad

Wednesday – peirogies with bacon and peppers and garden salad

Thursday – black bean and sweet potato tacos

Friday – glazed salmon with lemon garlic noodles and salad

As always, I am linking up over at Org Junkie. Happy Menu planning everyone!
