Meal Plan Monday 4-27-09

As you can see, the swimming area needs some major spring cleaning!

We worked really hard in the yard this weekend past! Not only do we have the normal spring clean up things to do, but we also have to CLEAN THE LAKE - yes, clean the lake. That means that we have to get in the water and rake all the leaves and other debris out of the lake, before we can actually swim in the water. Unfortunately for me, I am the only one who sees it like that (rotting leaves on the bottom of a lake = leaches). So, Saturday - I raked all the muck out of the swimming area! I tell myself this is really good exercise for the arms. Superman and Papa-rottzi worked on the new shed for most of the day, and Little T. went swimming - it was that warm.

My helper - Garden Barbie stayed with me for most of the day, raking the muck that I raked out of the lake (I simply do not do a good enough job - she has very high standards).

Our menu this week is pretty exciting for dinnertime, but breakfast and lunch are going to be simple due to the fact that I spent our budget on dinners. Breakfast will pretty much be oatmeal, eggs and toast and for lunch we'll mostly be having leftovers.

We will be trying some new recipes this dinner week. I'll let you know how they are.

Sunday - Cheeseburgers and Chopped Salad

- Salmon with Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

Tuesday - Spring Panzanella

- Freezer Meatloaf w/ White Sweet Potato Fries

Thursday - Pasta with Lentil Bolognese

Friday - Homemade Chicken Nuggets w/ Honey Mustard

Saturday - Pork Stuffed Collard Greens

For all the members of our Weight Loss and Nutrition Class - this week directly after the class we will be having a bread making demonstration. That does of course mean there will also be bread eating as well!

Enjoy the day -Wonderwoman
