Meal Plan Monday {Jan 23} + WW {Wk36}

Yesterday I had one of those days where I wasn’t feeling particularly like myself … I wasn’t sad or upset or angry, but I wasn’t happy or energetic either. And, unfortunately, it has flowed over into today also. I can’t really pinpoint the issue so I’m just hoping to get back to feeling like my normal self soon.

This is going to be a pretty simple week. We’ve got two new recipes we are trying {one rolled over from last week} and three meals that will create enough for leftovers!

Monday ~ Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken over rice with salad

I didn’t end up cooking this last week so it rolled over into this week. I’m really looking forward to it.

Tuesday ~ leftovers

Wednesday ~ Lentil and Black Bean Stew with salad

I found this recipe in a recent issue of Runners World. I’m very optimistic about it and I’ll share the recipe if it turns out good.

Thursday ~ leftovers

Friday ~ Pasta with marinara sauce with salad

Saturday ~ leftovers

Sunday ~ Turkey Burgers with salad

What’s on your menu this week?

I try to meal plan. Luckily, for me meal planning really only takes two new recipes. Three at the most. We eat out one night each week, I make two recipes that will feed us for three and we eat those two nights each (and freeze the remaining serving) and then we eat leftovers out of the freezer two nights (or if I've not got much in the freezer, we do something easy like pasta). OK, looking at that, why don't I have a clue what I need from the store this week LOL.
