Meal Plan Monday – December 5, 2011

It’s another Monday, and luckily no traveling for us this week.  Yippee!  I wanted to try a few new recipes but really only found one and it’s not even vegetarian.  Luckily I have some ground turkey that I want to use up.  For those of you keeping track (and that would be…no one…), we made our goal of eating at home four days a week, despite traveling three days last week – woohoo!  We had exactly what the plan said; homemade pizza, Tofu, Bean Burritos (oh except without the kale – it’s still sitting in my fridge), and egg rolls and salad!  Yay for us!

I did feed Miss K. some store bought food on our trip – we tried Plum Organics and it was easy.  And she liked it.  Sigh.  Some part of me wanted her to hate it so that I would feel better about all the effort I exert to make her food (ok fine – it’s not really that hard.  Just feels that way sometimes).  But she’s a flexible little bugger and she sucked it down.  Also bought her Baby Mum-Mums.  But not a six pack (disregard that).  She liked those too.  These things are pretty cool – they don’t crumble and make a mess.  It’s one of the the few foods that she can hold and eat; usually she just has small pieces of finger foods.  It was cute – she just kept looking at it and eating it and then examining it again. I don’t know why I feel bad about feeding her the store bought foods…I just do.  At some point she’s going to eat “normal” food.  And she does drink formula twice a day, after all.  That’s totally processed.  I think my mom fed me gerber baby food from a jar and look at me…I’m fine.  Well, no I’m not.  I love sugar and fried foods and sweets and all that to the point that I have to set goals to change my ways.  I even write about it because it’s so hard to stop eating this stuff for me.  But my mom’s not to blame for that.  It’s my personal indulgence.

Back on topic – So what’s for dinner this week?  Well let’s see here I have a feeling the meals won’t end up on these days but that’s ok:

Sunday: Japanese take – out (I didn’t care for this dinner very much.  Should have stuck with tried and true Vegetable rolls)

Monday:  Soup and Sandwiches

Tuesday:  Pad Thai

Wednesday:  Cheeseburger Macaroni & Broccoli, Avocado and tomato salad

Thursday:  Tacos

Friday:  Out

Saturday:  Arroz con Pollo
