Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 1/18 - 1/24)

As I mentioned in my last post, one of my goals for this year is to continue planning our dinners each week.  We did OK last week sticking to plan, although we have quite a few carry overs to this week.  Our schedule shuffled a little due to snow days and Adrian getting stuck at work.  The meal I planned to make this weekend for lunches this week got bumped to a dinner last week.  And then we got a surprise date night on Friday so we decided to give ourselves the night off and go out to dinner.  So thankful to have a babysitter our boys love!!

This week will be week two of getting back to our normal routine.  I'm hoping it's a little more routine (read: no snow days!) than last week.  I also hope it goes as smooth as last week did, although there are some extra things on the calendar this week so we will see.

Yesterday I got to use my new favorite cooking utensil, this spatula from my boys for Christmas.  It was for sale in the Secret Santa shop at Daniel's school and I made sure to get it before it sold out (for the second time!)  It was a hot item this year for sure!!

Here's what we're planning on eating this week:
Monday - Beef & Spinach Lo Mein (bumped from today as I just don't feel like cooking it tonight)
Tuesday - Butternut Squash & Sausage Casserole
Wednesday - Thai Chicken Wraps
Thursday - Sausage Kale & Sweet Potato Soup and Salad
Friday - Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Saturday - Broccoli & Cheese Soup and Cheddar Biscuits
Sunday - Waffle Crusted Chicken with Kung Pao Cauliflower

Water Infuser Flavor - Mango

I didn't do much prep this weekend since we all have tomorrow off and I have a very light day on Tuesday.  I think I'll be OK for the week.  I am hoping to make these muffins either tomorrow or next weekend to eat for breakfasts/snacks.

As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast.  Go check out the other blogs on the link up for some more yummy recipes!  Have a great week!!
