Saturday - seared tuna steaks, Israeli cous cous & roasted cauliflower

Sunday - eating at my in laws - brisket & latkes

Monday - soup - not sure what - I was thinking kreplach w/ veggies in it

Tuesday - 7 layer dip and blue tortilla chips

Wednesday - eggplant and lamb sausage stew with either brown rice or quinoa in it

Thursday - hommade ravioli & salad. I have mushrooms to use up so they'll be in the filling I guess

Friday - either shnitzel with sweet potato fries or whole roasted chicken with baked sweet potatoes (if I can get a whole chicken at the supermarket - we keep kosher and sometimes my market has them and sometimes they don't)

I'm Andrea - I have three boys - 12 year old twins & an 11 year old

I'm going to stop planning for certain days, because I never stick to it.

For breakfasts, we'll be having banana crumb muffins & chocolate chip pumpkin bread (both from scratch), and I'm also going to make bacon quiche tarts one morning.

Lunches will be leftovers or sandwiches.

Here are our dinners for the week:
-honey pork chops, corn on the cob, broccoli, rolls
-chicken & dumplings, steamed carrots, lima beans, cornbread
-chicken parmigiana, stewed squash, garlic bread
-cream cheese pancakes & bacon
-English muffin pizzas
-leftover chicken & dumplings one night

Dinners for the week:

Cream Cheese Pancakes

2 eggs
5 tsp. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. butter
8 oz. cream cheese, softened

Lightly beat eggs in large bowl. Add softened cream cheese, flour, sugar, and butter. Mix until well combined. (Mix will be slightly chunky.) Cook like regular pancakes, dropping by teaspoonfuls onto hot skillet/griddle.

I dust mine with powdered sugar when they're done, but this is an unnecessary and unhealthy step.

I also never stick to my plan for days of the week so I'm just planning a few good meals and we'll eat them whenever. This week it's
jambalaya
chicken enchiladas
beef stew

Everything is defrosting now so I can do some prep ahead of time.

Andrea can I come over and eat??????????

I really need to get back on the ball with meal planning. Lately my idea of cooking is boiling pasta and mixing cottage cheese in it :

OK here is what I have planned. I didn't do days of the week this week because hopefully I'm having a baby.

Fish (whatever looks good, possible homemade fish sticks), Broccoli, Carrots
Creamy Ranch Pork Chops, Rice, Peas & Applesauce for desert
Baked Potato Soup, Salad, Biscuits (2 nights)
BBQ Chicken (2 nights - 1 night will be sandwiches w/ baked fries)

The last night will be something with pasta, I have a bunch of it. I'm looking for a good vegetarian pasta recipe if anyone has one.

I just went through the kitchen and wrote down everything we have and I made up a meal plan for this week that will use it all up. Feeling proud of myself right now.

breakfast every morning is fruit for DH, nothing for me
the lunches I've planned are the ones that I pack for DH to take to work. I just scrounge whatever is around the house.

Mon (today):
lunch: chef salad
dinner: baked pasta with fresh veg and leftover sausage (I make pasta really infrequently, and I use low-carb pasta when I do make it); the veg I have in the house today is cherry tomatoes, green beans, and cauliflower so I guess that's what's going in there!

Tues:
lunch: broiled chicken breast and salad
dinner: bison burgers, cole slaw made with red cabbage and jicama, and sweet potato oven fries

Wed:
lunch: leftover bison burgers and salad
dinner: chicken strips "breaded" in almond flour, pumpkin bake, green beans

Thurs:
lunch: broiled chicken breast and salad
dinner: al pastor meat, pumpkin/kale enchiladas using leftover pumpkin (and some stale old corn tortillas I have lying around, heh)

Fri:
lunch: leftover al pastor meat, salad
dinner: out

Sat:
lunch: fruit salad and bacon
dinner: leftover chicken/veg soup from the freezer

Sun:
lunch: cheesesteak meat and salad
dinner: bbq beef brisket and some kind of frozen green veg

Me love.gif, DH guitar.gif, and DD baby.gif9/27/10!

It's a way to prepare pork and it's deeeeeeeeeelicious. You usually find it at more authentic mexican restaurants as one of the options for taco meat. Here is the recipe I'm gonna follow (copiously tweaked to use what I have on hand): http://www.latimes.com/features/food...headlines-food
