January 23 -- Menu Planning Monday
After two weeks of menu planning, I've discovered something. I need flexibility on the weekends. So this week, I'm only planning our weekday meals. Afterall, I have no idea what we'll be doing this weekend . . . so far in my meal planning, I haven't followed the weekend menus anyway.
So here goes for this week:
Chicken Fajitas (Aztec flour tortillas & fajita seasoning mix on sale @ Tems)
Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
(Grands biscuits on sale @ Tems)
(Picture & recipe from http://www.bubblecrumb.com/)
with all the Fixings ( corn chips, sour cream, cheese, diced onions)
Grilled Chicken Tenders in Garlic, Herb & Wine marinade
Noodles Alfredo (I like the wide noodles instead of fettucini)
I went to Weight Watchers this morning, and I had lost another pound! Yea!
I've had some of my friends question me as to how I'm doing Weight Watchers and cooking all this food I'm planning every week.
First of all . . . I don't eat everything I cook. For instance, I've cooked macaroni & cheese during the past 2 weeks, and I haven't eaten any of it. I'm eating what I cook, but I'm weighing the meats and measuring the food carefully. I've been tracking my points and staying within my daily points target trying hard not to go over into the weekly points allowance. It's not always easy, but Dave has been very encouraging to me.
Hope you all have a great week!
