Another week has flown by, and I need to get my menu plan up! Sticking to the plan continues to be successful. It is also a great way for me to plan my calories for the day. It is a difficult thing to go from 2700 or more while pregnant and nursing to 1500 now. Luckily my appetite has followed for the most part, but I still have to watch my choices. I have 20 pounds to go to my goal. 10 pounds should get me into a least a few pair of non-maternity pants. I will likely be traveling to Fort Worth in April, and I refuse to pack maternity clothes. So watch for my menus to be healthier, or to see my substitution (like last week when the kids and Dana ate nuggets, and I had a baked chicken thigh.)
Monday: Baked chicken, fresh veggies, leftover mashed potatoes and gravy
Tuesday: Planned leftovers from the Board Meeting. I really hope we have leftovers as we are having Kabob House and there will be trays of healthy salads, hummus, pitas and kabobs. If no leftovers, then Jumbalaya.
Wednesday: Healthy Tuna Casserole I will probably leave out the broccoli though.
Thursday: Asian Noodles I've made this before, but will likely leave out the fresh red pepper (unless it's on sale) and add some leftover pork loin.
Friday: Date Night! I'm not sure what Dana and I will do for dinner, but we have tickets to go see Avenue Q. This is our second date in 2010. One date a month? We just might get used to this!
Sunday: Open If we have leftovers tonight, I will likely do the Jumbalaya earlier in the week and bump that meal to Sunday.
