Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 8/24 - 8/30)

Wow, I forgot how hard it is to go back to school and get back on a routine.  We kind of flew by the seat of our pants this week and it wasn't pretty some of the time.  We mostly got everything done and everyone where they needed to be. 

I did great staying on track with exercise and eating right, under my calorie goal everyday!  This week I am hoping to find a little more of a routine for the days, especially figure out how to be productive in the afternoons when I'm home alone with a very active 3 year old who always wants me to play with him.  How can I resist this cuteness?
Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Chicken Stroganoff - a family favorite!  This is a holdover from last week.  We had leftovers (and ice cream!) yesterday for dinner instead of cooking this.
Tuesday - Ham Egg & Cheese Bake - still using up lunch meat
Wednesday - Chopped Salad with Shrimp and English Muffin Garlic Bread
Thursday - Balsamic Chicken Thighs with Couscous & Roasted Veggies
Friday - Pork Loin with Sweet Potatoes & Mango Salsa and a Bean Salad
Saturday - Pesto Ranch Chicken Thighs and Roasted Butternut Squash with Apples & Cranberries
Sunday -Spaghetti and Meatballs - This may get bumped to Mon.  We have a very busy weekend and I may not get to all of this cooking.  If I don't, we'll have leftovers for one meal and this will start our week.

Water Flavor - Watermelon & Lime.  Last week the pineapple water was delicious!  I will definitely be on the lookout for more cheap pineapples to use in my water.  This week I'm using up a lime I found in the fridge and some of the huge watermelon I bought for $4 this week.

As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast & Jill at Fitness, Health and Happiness.  Go check them out for some more yummy recipes!  Have a great week!!

  1. I have the same afternoon struggle- so much to do but the girls want me to play with them and I don't want to miss out on these years, it's a hard balance!
