Monthly Meal Plan: January 2011

Gracious!  Can you believe it's 2011?  When I was younger I wondered what life would be like in the year 2000, now we're in 2011.  I'm married, have 3 children in our life, drive a mini-van, coupon-like-a-mad-woman, watch movies from Netflix on my laptop,  who would have thought?

And I make meal plans.  

I had a little trouble with the monthly meal plan this time around.  I'm not feeling it for some reason.  Here's what I came up with.  It's likely to change...

(*) Some recipes are new to us, some are family favorites I haven't posted yet on Sissy's recipe blog.  

As for the OAMC and Batch Cooking.  I'm thinking I should bake up some of the free Krusteaz Muffins.  Last week we baked up the Banana Nut Muffins and added chocolate chips.  The kids loved them. We still have a few leftover and I popped them into the freezer.  So I don't think we'll be baking anymore this week.  But I do have a small list of things I need to complete this week:
Hope you have a great month!

I'm not feeling the meal plan thing right now either. Although in my case, I think it's because I'm getting over a terrible cold and haven't had much appetite this week. Let's hope we both get out of our funk soon and get creative again in 2011! Happy New Year to you Candi! Good luck with your fitness goals and all your endeavors in the coming year! I'm so happy we're blogging friends! :)
