Happy Monday! I love to read what others eat in their house so I thought I'd share our menu this week. As you can see below we aren't currently in "dieting" mode as I'm pregnant and just like easy, comfort food. We do try to watch our portions, especially when eating meals with pasta and cheese.
I love slow cooker meals since I work during the day. It's nice to have dinner made so I can enjoy a few hours with Jack when I get home rather than trying to find a distraction for him while mommy cooks. My husband doesn't arrive home until dinnertime (or often after Jack and I have already eaten on some days) so dinner planning and prep all falls on momma...tired, pregnant momma!
Sunday :: Bow Tie Fiesta, Chopped SW Salad
I made a few pans of this meal on Sunday for some friends so of course had to make one for us too. Not exactly healthy, but something that everyone will love and makes great leftovers to eat on all week. And yes, I linked you to a pre-made, bagged salad mix, but it's my favorite so I wanted to share with you! You can easily replicate it if you don't like bagged salads.
Monday :: Chicken Parmesan and salad
I don't have a recipe for this meal. There is a chef in my neighborhood who does a service out of his home every Monday called "Souper Monday". Each Monday he offers a new soup that you can purchase by the quart. I am a regular customer because it makes my Mondays little more bearable! We haven't had a bad meal from him yet. This week he also made Chicken Parmesan and I snatched up a pan...it sold out in minutes! So this afternoon all I have to do is make some pasta and quick salad and dinner is served!
Tuesday :: Slow Cooker Taco Soup & Cornbread
I've made this recipe several times. I know there are better taco soup recipes out there, but I love how easy this one is to prepare! Plus Jack likes it so win-win. I reviewed this recipe here.
Wednesday :: Hamburger Patties and Egg Noodles
No recipe here and probably super boring for most, but this is my Czech comfort food: meat and buttered noodles. I just make the hamburger patties in a skillet with a chopped onion and seasoning and serve with noodles and fruit.
Thursday :: Slow Cooker BBQ Spareribs, Mashed Potatoes and Salad
I've made this recipe before and it was super easy and good. I reviewed it here.
Friday :: Pickup/Out to Eat
Fridays are our traditional "mommas night off" night where we either pickup something on our way home, order Pizza or go out to eat (usually Mexican). It's a great way to celebrate the end of the week!
Saturday :: Throw something on the grill. Lots of options here!
What are you eating this week? If several of you like these posts, maybe we can organize a simple linkup...unless there is already one out there that I don't know about. Then please share!
