Meal Plan Monday, Feb. 8

Ah, Monday. My favorite day of the week - not - the day I get to figure out what in the heck we're going to eat for the next five days. This week, I'm trying out some new recipes. I think Dan will be particularly excited for Wednesday...

Monday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green salad. It's insane how much I like meatloaf. I'm actually going to make it with beef because even though I'm okay with subsituting turkey in recipes with seasonings and veggies and such, a hunk of baked turkey is just not appealing.

Tuesday: Spinach and cheese tortellini with red sauce and green salad (can you tell we have salad we need to use up?)

Wednesday: Tater Tot Casserole. I've been wanting to make one for a while now, and I finally found one that seems super easy and incorporates some other veggies. I'll be doing this with turkey since all the other ingredients will add flavor. Plus, I can trick myself into thinking this is somewhat healthy :)

Thursday: Maple BBQ Crock Pot Chicken Sandwiches with whole wheat buns. I'll have to figure out a side dish for this one.

Friday: leftovers. Between Wednesday's casserole and the BBQ chicken, we'll have our choice for Friday night as well as lunch on Saturday.

Hey, good lookin', whatcha got cookin' (this week)?

Ugh, I have to figure that out too. But instead of doing that, I'm hanging out here, reading your blog. It's much more interesting that my grocery list/mealplan. Plus, you've inspired me to make meatloaf this week. So thanks...

No problem, I do what I can :) I don't feel like doing much either today, honestly

Maple BBQ chicken sandwiches? Sounds AMAZING!!! I'd do a salad with this, too, or maybe some french fries. Of course I'd say french fries. :)

I'm with Amanda. The Thursday meal sound fantastic...maybe with a baked potato? And please to be sharing this recipe with the rest of the class?
