Getting back to menu planning
For the longest time I use to organize what we would eat all week. I found it very helpful and a good way to organize my points and keep on track when I was doing Weight Watchers. I haven't gone back to WW since I had my baby. I have thought about it but now that I live on a very tight budget I choose to spend my money on organic food for my son and almost anything else baby related.
Tonight, I decided to wing it a little a give my husband his last taste of beef for probably the next 6 weeks... unless he breaks me down. Tonight's dinner was almost entirely from the farmer's market. We had Crash Hot Potatoes, Organic NY steak on a bed of organic Arugula and spring mix. I also added some red pepper because my little man is not a fan of Arugula. Tim finished off his meal with a beer and I had a big glass of water. We might have some of the new Frozen Yogurt I got from the supermarket this past weekend. Haven't fully decided yet.
So now that I've rambled for a bit here is my menu plan for the week:
Monday - Purple Potatoes, NY steak, Arugula and Spring mix. Red pepper.
Tuesday - Chicken Picatta and Stuffed Tomatoes
Wednesday - Salmon baked in foil w/ Grilled Vegetables
Thursday - Eggplant Rollatini
Friday - Red Snapper with Beans and Arugula
Saturday - Wild Mushroom Risotto with Peas
Sunday - Chicken Cacciatore with a fresh salad
I'll probably make some kind of dessert for Saturday/Sunday night. I'm thinking maybe the jam squares since I bought some homemade raspberry rhubarb jam at the Farmer's Market this past weekend.
I'm also trying to find a really healthy smoothie recipe. I want something that tastes good, preferably doesn't use bananas and has flax seed oil in it. Any ideas? I'm thinking yogurt, berries of some sort, a tablespoon of flax seed oil and maybe some granola on top... not sure. I want it to be easy to make and good for me. Any ideas? Send them my way!
