This Week’s Meals

I have been slacking something miserable in a lot of departments.  Andy ran out of clean shorts this week.  Last week he had no socks.  And dinner has been pretty grab whatever and eat it.  So this week, in honor of an extra day, I am going to try to officially get my act together.  Starting with grocery shopping and laundry today.  And sweeping the kitchen floor (I have determined I will not bother mopping it…since it will be GONE soon).

So here’s my meal plan for this week (all of my links go to Cooking Light recipes—we’re working on cutting calories and being healthier around here….and frankly, I’d like to weight what I weighed when we got married two years ago):

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs or oatmeal, fruit

Lunch Andy: Chicken pot pie, mini sausage pizza, roast beef sandwiches

Lunch Ashley: Whole grain pita with hummus, Laughing Cow Light Cheese wedges, and cucumber; Chicken with Wild Rice Soup and salad

Snacks: popcorn, cut vegetables, apples, grapes, low fat cottage cheese and applesauce


Monday: Border Style Shrimp, Broccoli

Tuesday: Smothered Pork Chops with Thyme, salad

Wednesday: Chicken with Southwestern Salsa, garden salad

Thursday: Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

Friday: Bacon and Baked Potato Soup, salad

Saturday: Leftovers

How did this go??? I've been so bad about cooking too-but my husband does a better job than me most times anyway. I'm finally getting my appetite back, so I'm hoping to get in the swing of things next week with fall soups and squash and other autumn goodies.

So far so good. I missed one night, because we went to Subway after being at Lowes for waaayyy too long. Everything has been really good too. We can't even tell it's low-cal :)
