Menu Plan Monday: Week of Feb 11, 2008

So... the name of my blog is "Live. Love. Food.", but I have not been loving food very much lately. I never in a million years thought it would be possible for something to make me not want to cook!!

Well, this pregnancy has defiantly put a kink in my favorite thing to do! I not only don't really want to cook anything, but nothing sounds good. Oh well, I am sure this will pass... and then everything will sound good (let's hope)! My sweet husband has been so patient and kind through all of this! He has not only helped prepare meals, but has been ok with sometimes having cereal for dinner!

Without further rambling, here is this weeks meal plan:

Monday: Bok Choy, Veggie, and Tofu Stir Fry over Soba Noodles
Tuesday: Red Lentil Hummus on Pita Bread Sandwiches w/ side salad
Wednesday: Church Fellowship Meal - I am bringing a loaf of bread
Thursday: Grilled Tilapia topped with Cabbage & Radish Slaw and Tortilla Strips w/ side of roasted sweet potatoes
(This is a treat for Valentines Day... I am also going to serve sparking cider and make a dessert, not sure what yet)

Friday: Date Night!
Saturday: Veggie Loaf w/ Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Salad
Sunday: Leftovers

My reasoning for these are: the stir fry won't take very long, and the lentil hummus I can prepare earlier in the day and assemble for dinner, the veggie loaf will make leftovers... always quick!

Hopefully, this will be a pretty simple week! Does anyone have any other ideas for quick, yummy meals?

Sounds good!

I try to plan our meals out for 2-3 weeks at a time because I hate trying to figure out that day what to fix. It has worked out pretty well so far.

Sometimes my favorite meals are when we just have eggs and hash browns for supper though.
