Menu Plan Monday

Monday- I'm going to my NBRW meeting, but Brian is being taken care of. I thawed out some gumbo I made a while back for him and made fresh corn bread.

Tuesday - Slow Cooker rotisserie chicken, Baked beans (my crockpots will be doing all the work all day because I have no time to cook tomorrow. Subbing, then J.Crew) and broccoli orange salad. Notice how often I use Beth's recipes. She has such great recipes, I haven't tried a bad one yet!

Wednesday - This is going to be another no time to cook day so I'm just fixing boxed red beans and rice with venison sausage and steamed zucchini.

Thursday - Mongolian beef over brown rice and steamed edamame. Edamame is a take-out favorite of mine and oh so healthy! I never used to have it at home until I realized how cheap a frozen bag of it is and so easy to steam up. You should definitely give it a try if you haven't before.

Friday - Omelets with whatever leftover veggies we have by then, hashbrowns and grapefruit.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Cobbler is for dessert every night until it's gone. I made it with blueberry pie filling and it's delicious!! I followed her recipe but used reduced fat everything and Splenda instead of sugar and it came out perfectly. Probably still bad for us, but not nearly like it could have been!
