Menu Plan – 1/31-2/6

We had a lovely and relaxing Super Bowl Sunday … even though it didn’t involve the Super Bowl. Aside from my husband flipping over to check the score every now and then, we didn’t watch it.

Instead we spent the afternoon at a local history museum for free admission day. Because of the Super Bowl, it was mostly empty, which made it even more enjoyable. It was also free. :)

At the grocery store, we only spent $50. We’ve been doing great lately. Even though we’re going to a pot luck on Friday, we’re still cooking the same amount of meals this week because Tony doesn’t have class Monday night, so we’re making a meal instead of eating leftovers. I’m also still bringing snacks to work like apples and yogurt. I don’t know what’s changed, but I’ll take it.

We’re still experimenting with healthier versions of our favorite meals. Here’s the menu plan:

Saturday: Homemade pizza
Sunday: Lean burgers and chips
Monday: Oven baked chicken, collard greens and red potatoes
Tuesday: Steak fajitas
Wednesday: Macaroni and cheese with cauliflower (more cauliflower, less cheese)
Thursday: Spinach and tomato pasta
Friday: Pot luck dinner with friends

The oven baked chicken is a faux-fried chicken coated in Dijon mustard and cornflakes and baked in the oven. We got that recipe as well as the healthier version of mac and cheese from this month’s issue of Real Simple. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

Now head over to OrgJunkie for more menu plans.

    My husband and I made the healthier mac n cheese from Real Simple last week! It was really good! It made a huge amount (filled up a 9×13 pan)… almost too much for two people. Let us know if you like it.
