I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families this year!  Ours was fantastic as usual and I think I’m still full from dinner!

Have you all noticed that I haven’t had a menu plan up in a while?  This might be shocking, but I actually hadn’t even planned anything for a couple of weeks! *gasp*  I think I might be the most shocked since that was the first time since being married I went without a plan.  I’m not convinced it really worked for me either.  We didn’t eat as healthfully, that’s for sure.  But we were out for dinner a few times at relatives and friends who fed us quite well and I managed to pull some decent stuff out of the freezer! 🙂  I did do less grocery shopping though, but I also noticed a bit more waste with the food items I did buy.  Broccoli had gone bad and some lettuce was slimy before we had the chance to eat it all.  I’m more then ready to jump back into menu planning now that we’ll have some sense of routine back since Christmas is over!

Here’s what I’ve got in mind:

Monday:  Chicken Caesar Pitas (before the rest of the lettuce goes bad!)
Tuesday:  Pepperoni Pesto Pizzas, salad
Wednesday:  Olive Garden Ziti (less cheese and added ground beef), steamed carrots & broccoli
Thursday:  Beef Chili + Sour Cream and cheddar biscuits
Friday:  Grilled Cheese and Creamy Tomato Soup
