Menu Monday

Here's this weeks menu.
Here are some general notes about my meal plans: I'm sacrificing a little health to help me get back into the groove of cooking every night. Next week I'm going to incorporate more healthy choices. Crockpot meals are usually on days that we have things going on in the evenings. If "leftover" is listed in a lunch it means we will be eating whatever we had for dinner the night before.

Mondays are leftover day. Also known as clean out the fridge day. I plan to make a big Sunday dinner so there will also be leftovers from that too.
Monday- Breakfast-Cereal
               Lunch- Pot Roast Sandwiches
               Snack- Popcorn with peanuts
               To Do-Make P.B. and Oatmeal muffins and Chicken Apple Salad

Chicken Apple salad is a mix of celery, apples and grilled chicken. It's delicious and very healthy.
               Lunch- Chicken Apple Salad
               Dinner- Crockpot Chili & Corn Bread
               Snack- PB&J roll up
               To Do- 

Wednesday-Breakfast- Muffins
               Lunch- Leftovers
               Dinner- Chicken Parmesan Spaghetti, raw broccoli
               Snack- yogurt
               To Do

I'm trying a variation of The Pioneer Woman's meatloaf but I'm going to put it in the crockpot which I've also never done. So we'll see how it turns out!
Thursday-Breakfast- Muffins
               Lunch- leftovers
               Dinner- Crockpot Meatloaf, raw veggies

Saturday-Breakfast-Banana Pancakes & Bacon

               Dinner- Out
               Snack- apples and peanut butter with honey
               To Do

Since we are living far away from family I've decided to start making a nice Sunday dinner for the three of us. But it will most likely occur between lunch and dinner. I also plan to have a dessert on Sunday's. It's the only day of the week that we will have a sweet.
Sunday- Breakfast-Cereal
               Lunch- Chicken Pot Pie
               Dinner/ Dessert on Sundays- not sure yet. We'll see what I feel like closer.
