Menu Plan Monday on Tuesday

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!

Saturday: Tacos

Sunday: Open  If we have leftovers tonight, I will likely do the Jumbalaya earlier in the week and bump that  meal to Sunday.
