Menu Plan Monday: Week of March 24th, 2008

This week isn't too busy, so I am trying some new recipes.

Monday: Lentil, Radish, and Spinach Stuffed Pita w/ Carrot Salad (I didn't make it last week... so, I am trying it today!)
Tuesday: Better Than Bacon BLTs w/ Pasta Salad & Orange Wedges
Wednesday: Veggie Enchiladas w/ Side of Black Beans (I am making this one up)
Thursday: Pumpkin Pasta w/ Side Salad
Saturday: Crockpot Peanut Chicken w/ Brown Rice & Stir Fried Asian Veggies
Sunday: Leftovers!

So, I found this great new blog. It is called Kath Eats Real Food. She has some great ideas on there! She is also studying to become a Registered Dietitian. I absolutely love being an RD, and it is great to hear about others entering into the field of nutrition with a great outlook on food and health.

Have a beautiful day!

Menu Plan Monday: Week of March 17th, 2008

I am LOVING the second trimester so far... cooking and planning meals has returned to normal. Thank goodness!

So, here is this weeks meal plan:

Monday: BBQ Chicken Pizza w/ side of fresh pineapple
Tuesday: (We are having company) Swiss Chard Soft Tacos w/ sweet potato fries, side of mango
Wednesday: Tempeh & Broccoli Stir Fry w/ Brown Rice
Thursday: Lentil, Radish, & Spinach stuffed pita w/ Shredded Carrot Salad
Friday: DATE NIGHT! Hopefully Indian food!
Saturday: Leftovers or Honey Baked Lentils
Sunday: Potluck at church - Banana Bread and maybe something else

I am also MAYBE going to try this recipe for our company tomorrow: Raw Apple Pie. It sounds amazing and so very healthy... I will let you know if I try it! I am a bit nervous about trying it because if I mess it up, that is a lot of wasted expensive ingredients!

We had our first midwife appointment today... and we got to hear the heartbeat!!!!!!!

I am so so so very excited! My husband and I both started crying. What and incredible experience!

The midwife said everything is going great at this point, and the baby seems healthy! Looks like our due date is September 19th, 2008 (give or take 2 weeks :)!
