Meal Plan Monday, Feb. 15

Okay, so we're a little early, but we just returned from an ultra-romantic date to the grocery store, so I figured I'd post now. This week is mostly centered on Dan's suggestions.

Monday: BBQ chicken pizza. We've got to use up the last of our BBQ chicken from last week, and we're tired of sandwiches so... pizza pie!

Tuesday: Turkey taco salads a la Chipotle. Dan's been wanting to try to make Chipotle's famous cilantro rice, so this is a great opportunity.

Wednesday: French's fried onion encrusted chicken and asparagus. Another Dan suggestion. I'm willing to try anything new.

Thursday: Macaroni'n'Cheese with Hot Dogs. Dan's childhood favorite. It sounds icky, but it's very tasty. Not healthy, but if I eat well the rest of this week, it'll be my weekly treat while we watch The Office.

Friday: Honestly, we didn't get that far, but I have a feeling we'll have leftovers of something to finish off.

Our weekend has been good, although uneventful. I've been sick for about 4 days - I just feel run down and I'm plagued with a sore throat, cough, and general fatigue. Clover's surgery went well and hardly slowed her down. On Saturday, we were told by the dealership that our Murano needed 2 tires, a brake flush, transmission flush, and belts. Total cost: $1,275. No way, Jose. Dan spent Saturday afternoon and the better part of today buying parts and doing a lot of it with our mechanic friend, Scott, for a whopping $200. Take that, Nissan dealership! All we have left is the tires, and Scott thinks we've got a couple months left on them.

So, yeah, super exciting stuff. I just hope this week is easier on my nerves than the last two have been. Have a great week!

Ick I need new tires too.

I used to LOVE macaroni and hot dogs when I was a kid! Maybe I will try to make it with macaroni and non-fat turkey dogs to take some of the unhealthyness out of them. Great comfort food!

BTW I told M about your honey chicken crockpot recipe and he is SO excited about it.

I'm a huge fan of macaroni & cheese with hot dogs. We don't eat it often but once in a while it's just perfect.

I'm also making your chicken recipe tomorrow. I'll let you know how it comes out.
