So, with out further ado, let’s menu plan!
Monday: I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for Five Spice Turkey & Lettuce Wraps for quite a while – I think it’s something my son would enjoy helping with – and eating!
Tuesday: We usually have Taco Tuesday around these parts, but I’m thinking this Healthy and Hearty Taco Casserole might be a welcome substitution!
Wednesday: Lean grilled pork loin chops with Curry Roasted Cauliflower and salad of arugula tossed with lemon juice and olive oil.
Thursday: Baked potato bar – top with healthy toppings of your choice. I like salsa, low fat cheddar and light sour cream. Broccoli and shredded cheese is delicious as well. Serve with fresh fruit or a green salad.
Friday: Homemade pizza night. I’m going to try this whole wheat crust (or you can buy crust – Trader Joe’s carries great premade pizza dough) and top with a smear of barbeque sauce, grilled chicken, light shredded cheddar and mozzarella, thinly sliced red onion and a sprinkling of chopped cilantro after it’s out of the oven.
Saturday: I’ve been cooking all week and we’ll be getting some kind of takeout. Better yet, maybe this mama will get taken out to dinner (side eye to husband).
Sunday: This General Tsao’s Chicken is SO easy and delicious. Serve with brown rice instead of white.
