I'll join in too! Only today and saturday are set, so we will cook the others sometime during the week. It's a little heavy on beef this week, but I am trying to use the freezer/pantry for meals.

1). Slow cooker beef brisket, new potatoes, green beans, yeast rolls, apple cobbler

2).Tostadas using leftover brisket, refried beans

3).Italian bowties and beef skillet, sweet peas, salad

4).Tuna Salad Wraps , pasta salad, fresh cut fruit

5). Grilled greek chicken breasts (I will marinate in greek seasoning and lemon), Spring Celebration Orzo, sliced fresh tomatoes, garlic bread:

6). White beans and rice, sauteed collard greens, cornbread

7). I have evening clinical, so dh is on his own. --- He will probably order pizza or have leftovers/grilled cheese.

Yes I slack on the pictures sometimes, especially if it is a meal we have had before! It's hard when your child is hungry and husband is hungry to say wait let me take a picture! By the time I find the camera and memory card and hope that the batteries are charged, they are getting anxious!

wife&mommy,
I really liked your blog, too! I am impressed with your meals, let alone by the time and patience you spend blogging them! Thanks for the resource! I have a question, though...I didn't see a recipe for the homemade sauce "with tons of veggies" you use so often. Do you have one you can share?
thanks!!

Yeah I make it different every time... it's not really a recipe! I put tomatoes (tons!), tomato sauce (a few large cans), italian spices to taste, garlic (lots!), onions, mushrooms, carrots, spinach, zucchini, and squash. I cook all the veggies first, then mix them in with the tomatoes/sauce and use my emersion blender to make it all smooth. Let it cook out without the lid on until it's thick enough (sometimes a few hours). Then I freeze it in 3 cup portion sizes. My family can't tell the veggies are in there as long as I blend it well enough and it still tastes great. Sorry that isn't a great recipe, I just kinda throw it together!

I've been inspired by your blog wife&mommy, I'm thinking of doing something similar of my own. All my friends are always asking "how do you make..." and this way I could say go to my blog, plus I love taking pictures of food, especially my home baked pizzas they can be a work of art. I like how you have the menus and what works and what was not so great. Good job!

Anyone else here have a problem sticking to a meal plan? We eat what I buy but I can never tell you whether what I have written down is what Ill make or if Ill use the same ingredients (plus or minus a few) to make something different.. I don't know if its pregnancy or what but I have no idea what I want to eat till I start to cook
