Me!!

Monday was Eggplant Parmesan, green beans and bread

Tuesday- I took the leftover eggplant, pureed it, and made a sauce to go with whole wheat noodles and mozz cheese.

Wednesday- We'll grill hamburgers or brats, with a pasta salad, and potatoes on the grill too.

Thursday- Something in the crockpot- most likely chicken

Friday- We're going out for supper.

I usually plan the day before or the lunch time before. LOL
Last night I set out 6lbs of ground beef to thaw in our fridge and tonight I'm going to make burgers and I'll save the rest of the meat for something else (not sure yet but I'm thinking some beef and rice and possibly some hamburger helper meals that are just sitting in our pantry!)

I was doing so well at meal planning. Then I got pg and the morning sickness (which I've never really experienced) set in....

Hoping to be back on the wagon soon!

I wanna go eat at Lindsay's house.
