Meal Plan for Nov 27, 2011

Week 2 of being back on track with the meal planning. I hope that eveyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was great and it was nice to spend time with my family. I even ran a 5k this year just to earn my turkey! I had a PR of 31:42. That is freaking amazing for me. I must have really wanted to chow down. Lol.

Without further ado, the food:

Sunday: Tarragon Chicken Casserole (or leftover turkey)
Monday: Tortilla Soup (our favorite) crock pot
Tuesday: Autumn Sausage Casserole crock pot
Wednesday: LO
Thursday: Fish with mashed cauliflower
Friday: LO
Saturday: LO

Feel free to ask for recipes! Until next time....

Meal Plan for week of Nov 20, 2011

Greetings everyone-

I have been asked to post my meal plans.  As I posted in the past, I plan several months in advance because it makes my life easier.  I am going to try and publish each new week on Sunday evenings.  A few notes: I try to cook 4 days a week and have left overs for the rest of the week.  My crock pot is my best friend.  I do not eat beef.  I do try to eat healthy but never deny myself food but instead eat everything in moderation and this will only be the main course but keep in mind we usually have a veggie, salad and/or a starch of some kind to round out the meal.  Feel free to ask questions or to have me post a recipe for something that sounds good.  

Here we go....

Sunday:  White Bean Chicken Chili (It was amazing)
Monday:  Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings / Salad
Tuesday: Left overs  (LO)
Wednesday:  It's my birthday so we are going out!  
Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving 
Friday: Thanksgiving part 2 (we are making our own Turkey so we have LO)
Saturday: LO

This week is unusual because of the holiday and my birthday!  We are all going to have turkey and food galore.  It's next week when we are sick of turkey that meal planning will really be helpful, lol!  Happy Thanksgiving!   



Wow, I really have been neglecting this little segment of my world.  I have been doing well.  My life has been a massive swirl of running, running and more running.  I finished my very first half-marathon back in October.  My time was 2:29 and that was better than I could ever have hoped for.  Training really does pay off!  It was an amazing experience and I can't wait to do the next one in March.   Rock-n-roll NOLA better watch out, lol!  I have been taking a little down time the last few weeks before gearing up for more training!  I love the fact that I can push this body to do more than I could ever dream.  Success isn't always measured in inches and pounds but in miles and sweat! 

I have been asked by friends to post my meal plans.  So I thought head to the blog and update.  This may be just the push I need to return to blogland.  Fingers crossed that I can keep up!  I've missed everyone!
