Menu Plan Monday - Jan 6, 2014

Good morning my friends! I know it’s been a long time since you have heard from me, but today is Monday, and it’s a new year, and I’m going to try to be a better blogger this year! We will see how it goes…
This is our family on Christmas morning, celebrating with our presents!!
Happy New Year!!
I have plans to post some fun recipes and craft ideas, and some of those recipes I have already tested and photographed – now it’s just a matter of actually writing the posts and sharing them with you guys!

For now, let’s start small – with this week’s menu plan! After the craziness of Christmas (and all of the turkey, wine, chocolate, more chocolate and still more chocolate) it’s definitely time to get back into planning healthy meals for my family – and to take for lunch to work.

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? This year I am just making one, fairly easy (I hope) plan for 2014 – to NOT go out for lunch every day that I am at work. It’s a matter of time management and planning meals to bring food to work. It also helps that I have some great friends at work who have the same plan!

Our family is also trying to make a resolution together. We are going to TRY to get the girls to eat more of the dinners that I actually cook on the menu plan. Right now, I would make the girls one dinner (chicken strips, pasta, grilled cheese) while the hubs and I would have the dinner from the menu plan. I have one very picky eater on my hands, and one who is starting to get picky with her meals. Hopefully 2014 will be the year that I can cook ONE DINNER for everyone to eat! I’m not getting my hopes up, but you never know!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all have a fantastic week!

On the menu this week:

Monday: Turkey Meat Loaf, mashed potatoes and steamed veggies

Tuesday: Butter chicken and brown rice

Wednesday: Lasagne Wednesday

Thursday: Maui ribs, roasted potatoes and corn on the cob

Friday: BBQ chicken breasts, Mexican rice and salad

Saturday: Date night! Dinner and a movie while the girls are at a slumber party

Sunday: Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti in Boursin cream sauce

I’ll be linking my menu plan up to OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday – check it out!!
