Meal Plan Monday 1/3/11

We had that stomach bug going around yesterday so we haven't been eating too much.  Crackers, ginger ale, toast, applesauce, bananas.  So I'm guessing our weekly plan will change a little.  So far this is what's happening.

Breakfasts:  Yogurt, Granola and Banana; Fruit Smoothie with Yogurt and Granola;  Swiss Muesli with Pumpkin Spiced Granola and Cranberries;  Egg White Omelet with Mushrooms, Red Peppers and Arugula
Cereal with Bananas

Snacks:  Apples, Oranges, Tangerines, Peanut Butter Toast, Nutella Graham Crackers

Lunches: Chicken Noodle Soup with Crackers;  Butter Parmesan Noodles with Peas;  Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches with Banana Slices; Applesauce, Peaches


Monday:  Rice in broth (I'm guessing we'll still be recovering)

Tuesday:  Apricot Pork Chops (didn't get around to these last month) - maybe

Wednesday:  Chicken-in-a-Skillet*(new) - I hope

Thursday:  Leftovers

Friday:  "Thin Crust" Pizza* and Salad

Saturday:  Shrimp Alfredo, Salad and Green Beans (Pantry Meal)*

We eat from our pantry every month.  That's why I create a monthly meal.  I plan meals based on what we got on sale the month before.  I'm going to be focusing on our grocery budget of $75 a week.  Staying within the budget is important. 

Random thought - I'll share a little something about the grass-fed beef and free-range chicken tomorrow. 

The "Thin Crust" Pizza is really just a flour tortilla.  But low calorie and super easy. 

Shrimp Alfredo is another Pantry Meal.  I'll share the recipe on Saturday after I get the pictures made.

Hope you have a great and tasty week!

Hey Candi--

I hope you are all feeling better soon!

Answer to your question--

I have tons of turkey to use up too. The recipe for turkey bundles was going to be based on this TOA recipe with whatever I had one hand--

I will made the bread pocket myself.

Have a great week!

Those pork chops look yummy, I'll have to give them a try soon. I to will be striving to use a $75.00 a week food budget this year. There are 5 in my family and I think I can do it. I'm going to be concentrating on pantry meals, as well as adding more beans and smaller meat servings.

Sorry to hear about your stomach bug, we had it too around christmas, and our whole family got it. But as a bonus I lost about 5lbs, lol!!!
