Meal Plan Monday #167

For the first time in a long time, we had a nice relaxing weekend at home. We went to the dog park, and Halley got to play chase with another dog. We went out to eat, ran errands, and took care of some of those things that just seem to get pushed back until "later." This week should be a regular week with no extra commitments, until Saturday, when I have to work... All in all, life is good.

Sunday:  Chipotle Lime Broiled Salmon with Spinach and Parmesan Orzo and Salad

Monday:  Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Gyoza and Salad

Tuesday:  Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas with Guacamole

Wednesday:  Tutorial Night Takeout!

Thursday:  Supreme Meat and Veggie (pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, sausage, jalapeƱos) Pizza with Caesar Salad

Friday:  Date Night! Darren's Pick!

Meal Plan Monday #165

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you had a great day. We don't go all out for Valentine's Day, because it's just two days after my birthday, and I'd rather focus on holidays that mean something to US, instead of to everyone else. :) Still, there's nothing wrong with a delicious dinner at home!

Sunday:  Cast Iron Steaks with Loaded Mashed Potatoes and Salad

Monday:  Cheese Ravioli with Bell Peppers, Onions, and Mushrooms (similar to this)

Tuesday:  Chicken Philly Pockets with Sweet Potato Fries and Salad

Wednesday:  "Grilled" Chicken Tenders with Mushroom-Butter-Beefy Rice and Broccoli-Cauliflower Casserole

Thursday:  Pepperoni and Jalapeno Pizza and Salad

Friday:  Date Night! Darren's Pick!

Monday:  Spinach and Ricotta Pasta with Italian Sausage with Cheesy Garlic Bread

Tuesday:  Pepperoni Pizza Roll-ups and Salad

Wednesday:  Tutorial Night Takeout!

Monday:  Quick Korean Beef Bowls with Cabbage, Carrots, and Edamame

Tuesday:  Broiled Sandwiches with Spicy Pickles, Chips, and Fruit Salad
