Meal Plan Monday 4/16/12

We visited my husband's parents over the weekend.  We also attended the Ottawa Farms Strawberry Festival.  We've done this for 3 years.  It's really fun for the kids.  I'll share some pictures later in the week.  This week is going to be crazy busy.  There's a new baker at the shop and I'm going to be supervising her progress this week.  So I'll be going in super early, 4 a.m. and getting back home around 8 a.m. so my husband can get to work on time.  Thankfully, it's only for 3 days or I'd be pooped out.  Plus I can get a nap in during lunch time.

Funny thing about naps, they used to be elusive.  More recently, I've been able to pretty much curl up in the bed, close my eyes and doze off within a few minutes.  Guess I can chalk that up to getting older.

So this week we're going to try a couple of new recipes and eating some old favorites like the pineapple meatballs...we love this!

Monday - Lasagna and salad

Tuesday - BBQ Pineapple with Meatballs over rice and steamed veggies

Wednesday - Paleo Breakfast Casserole* and fruit

Thursday - BBQ Chicken Dump, baked potatoes, green beans

Friday - Thin Crust Pizzas and salad

Saturday - Herbed Baked Chicken Breasts, veggie sides and homemade pumpkin ice cream* with ginger snap cookies and brownies

Sunday - Mozzarella Stuffed Burgers*, oven cheese fries and salad

For breakfast this week:  Pumpkin Oatmeal and egg white omelette (399 calories); Strawberry Smoothies with peanut butter and banana sandwich (353 calories); Egg, turkey and cheese sandwich and fruit (329 calories)

Snacks will be turkey wrapped string cheese and apples.

For lunch last week I ate Creamy Cilantro Shrimp and Peppers.  It was so good, I think I'll eat it again this week.  You saute about 15 medium shrimp in nonstick cooking spray, add 1 bell pepper (julienned sliced).  Season with cumin and black pepper and continue cooking until bell pepper is getting some blackened spots on it.  Only takes a few minutes.  Remove shrimp and peppers to a bowl and top with 1/4 cup salsa and 2 tablespoons light sour cream mixed with chopped cilantro.  I ate it just like this, but you can easily make tacos out of it by putting the mixture into a couple of soft taco shells.

I hope you have a great week!

I think I have that same breakfast casserole on a menu in the future! The meatballs look awesome, I tend to eat way too many meatballs though. :-)

I borrowed your pinterest pic of the pizza ;)

This week I had the kids and hubby tell me what they wanted, too nauseated to think about food!
