Saturday - seared tuna steaks, Israeli cous cous & roasted cauliflower<br><br>
Sunday - eating at my in laws - brisket & latkes<br><br>
Monday - soup - not sure what - I was thinking kreplach w/ veggies in it<br><br>
Tuesday - 7 layer dip and blue tortilla chips<br><br>
Wednesday - eggplant and lamb sausage stew with either brown rice or quinoa in it<br><br>
Thursday - hommade ravioli & salad. I have mushrooms to use up so they'll be in the filling I guess<br><br>
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)

<span style="text-decoration:underline;">Cream Cheese Pancakes</span><br><br>
2 eggs<br>
5 tsp. all-purpose flour<br>
1 1/2 tsp. sugar<br>
1 tsp. butter<br>
8 oz. cream cheese, softened<br><br>
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.<br><br>
I dust mine with powdered sugar when they're done, but this is an unnecessary and unhealthy step. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

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<br>
jambalaya<br>
chicken enchiladas<br>
beef stew<br><br>
Everything is defrosting now so I can do some prep ahead of time.

Andrea can I come over and eat??????????<br><br>
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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

OK here is what I have planned. I didn't do days of the week this week because hopefully I'm having a baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Fish (whatever looks good, possible homemade fish sticks), Broccoli, Carrots<br>
Creamy Ranch Pork Chops, Rice, Peas & Applesauce for desert<br>
Baked Potato Soup, Salad, Biscuits (2 nights)<br>
BBQ Chicken (2 nights - 1 night will be sandwiches w/ baked fries)<br><br>
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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Feeling proud of myself right now.<br><br>
breakfast every morning is fruit for DH, nothing for me<br>
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.<br><br>
Mon (today):<br>
lunch: chef salad<br>
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!<br><br>
Tues:<br>
lunch: broiled chicken breast and salad<br>
dinner: bison burgers, cole slaw made with red cabbage and jicama, and sweet potato oven fries<br><br>
Wed:<br>
lunch: leftover bison burgers and salad<br>
dinner: chicken strips "breaded" in almond flour, pumpkin bake, green beans<br><br>
Thurs:<br>
lunch: broiled chicken breast and salad<br>
dinner: al pastor meat, pumpkin/kale enchiladas using leftover pumpkin (and some stale old corn tortillas I have lying around, heh)<br><br>
Fri:<br>
lunch: leftover al pastor meat, salad<br>
dinner: out<br><br>
Sat:<br>
lunch: fruit salad and bacon<br>
dinner: leftover chicken/veg soup from the freezer<br><br>
Sun:<br>
lunch: cheesesteak meat and salad<br>
dinner: bbq beef brisket and some kind of frozen green veg

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): <a href="http://www.latimes.com/features/food/cl-fo-tacorec4jun04,1,2874490.story?coll=la-headlines-food" target="_blank">http://www.latimes.com/features/food...headlines-food</a>
