ruby26:  I’m making a few recipes and then splitting them for leftovers.

Beef and broccoli in the crockpot — http://therecipecritic.com/2012/11/slow-cooker-beef-and-broccoli/

Crockpot chicken and stuffing (I subbed plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream, and added sage) — http://www.stockpilingmoms.com/2013/06/crockpot-chicken-and-stuffing/

I also baked chicken breasts with a little bit of olive oil, pepper, and oregano, topped with tomato paste, a bit of shredded parmesan, and a side of cottage cheese!

Breakfasts will be whole grain English muffins with an over-medium egg and a sprinkle of low fat cheddar cheese.

Snacks — vanilla greek yogurt with half banana and PB, cut up raw veggies

Sunday 2/15: Stewed Chicken & Gravy, Rice, Green beans with Sausage & Potatoes

Monday 2/16: Leftovers

Tuesday 2/17: Sloppy Joes

Wednesday 2/18: Leftovers

Thursday 2/19: Beef Stir-fry

Friday 2/20: Leftovers

Saturday 2/21: I normally don’t cook on Saturdays.  If anything, I’ll probably do a pot of white bean chicken chili.  What’s most likely though is we’ll eat whatever’s in the freezer (frozen pizza or chicken nuggets, fries, or whatever), and then I’ll make the chili on Sunday.  It’s still a toss up this early in the week though.

Question of the Week: What are you looking forward to this week? Friday at 5pm.

 ETA: I’m making bread pudding w/ rum sauce for dessert tonight, and I’m pretty stoked about that!

I havent gotten the knack yet of planning a weeks menu ahead of time but I’m close to starting. I did  plan tomorrow nights dinner and bought the ingredients today at Whole Foods Market to make Chicken Cacciatore. (Tonight I’m lazy, having veggie burger with baby carrots, red bell pepper strips, green stuffed olives and kosher dill pickle on the side, with homemade Valentines maraschino cherry cupcake for dessert 🙂 )


Everybodys menus sound so delicious! 


On Friday February 20, I’m looking forward to my much needed night out with male and female friends!!
