menu plan monday: 03.11.13

Last week’s break was much needed and enjoyed. I took a few days to just sit back and plan out our calendars for the next few months.

Can we just say that this school year is pretty much over?

We’ve got 3 separate spring breaks affecting our house, 2 birthdays, Holy Week, a big church event and other randomness happening and it’s going to be June before I have a chance to breathe. And with our denomination’s Annual Conference and VBS in June and a road-trip/family reunion in July and August, we’re practically into the next school year already.

Intimidating?

Yes.

Oh, heck yes.

But also great incentive to be on top of my game.

For my workouts, I’m still working off of the goals I set for March. I hit a big one this past weekend when I ran 3.1 miles on the treadmill in about 33 minutes, meaning I ran for at least 30 minutes straight. I’m seriously considering a subscription to Bodeefit for the workouts and access to the menu plans. Has anyone tried it yet? I’m pretty sure I’d never use it verbatim, but even if it gave me a few meals a week that would be handy.

Speaking of menu plans, here’s this week’s:

Monday
Shredded Beef Tacos and Salads
Guacamole

Tuesday
Gluten, Grain and Garbage Free Chick-Fil-A Nuggets
 Sweet Potato Fries
Kale and Carrots

Wednesday
Broccoli Beef (with a little orange juice and zest)
White Rice
Cauliflower Rice

Thursday
Pork Chops (brined in the style of The Clothes Make the Girl’s Best Chicken Ever)
Whatever veggies need to be cooked

Friday
Birthday party

Saturday
Brinner – I’m eyeing a few new paleo-ish pancake recipes  that I’d like to test out
Bacon
Strawberries

Sunday
Corned Beef and Cabbage (in the pressure cooker?)
Boiled Red Potatoes
