Menu Plan Monday

I am switching things up just a little this week.  I have some exciting news that I will share with you tomorrow.  Because of this news I am feeling like I am going to need a little more planning in my life.  With that said I am trying out Menu Plan Monday hosted by I'm An Organizing Junkie.  I have actually been following her blog for a very long time.  I am new at this and I have not decided how I will handle recipes.  So for right now you will have to beg me for them! ;)  Ha just kidding.  If anything interests you please just send me a a note and I will either email it to you or post it.

I am giving each meal a day, but usually I plan seven items for the week and cook them on the days I am feeling like eating it.

Gilled Chicken Salad

Asian Grilled Steak and Side Salad

Crockpot Porketta, Yellow potatoes and green beans

Spaghetti, Garlic bread and Side Salad

Pizza (hubby has been asking for this)

I will be eating Santa Fe Rice and Beans

Chicken Rice Casserole

Grilled Shrimp Ceasar Salads

I know these are pretty boring meals, but I have some pretty stocked cabinets and freezers I am trying to thin out.  I am also trying to stick with my Weight Watchers.

On that note I am proud to report that this week I have lost 1 pound!  So that puts me to 49 pounds to go.  I was hoping to loose 2 pounds a week, but I am allowing myself to be happy with this small victory.  I know where I will cut back this week and I will add in more workouts as well.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and has a wonderful week!


  1. Good luck on your weight loss this week. I like your positive attitude:) Looks like a great menu plan. Come join me for What's On the Menu Wednesday whenever you can.

  2. Great job on the weight loss girl! Wednesday and Saturday recipes sound yummy! I know you're busy so don't worry about sending the recipes unless you just ABSOLUTELY want to. Heart ya!

  3. I can't meal plan... yet. I've tried so many times, and just can't find a way to make it work for me. But, I usually do sort of plan what we're going to eat when I'm grocery shopping, it's just not really by week, it's more like, how many meals can I make before I have to go back to the grocery store, haha. :-)

  4. Love your menu thanks for sharing.

  5. I can't wait to hear you news!!! I love to meal plan. I have a great recipe for Zucchini Boats that is tres awesome and tastes like pizza only WAY less calories!

  6. Welcome! Glad you've joined us :)

  7. I love to plan my meals too; it makes the weeknights so much easier and these look yummy!
