Menu Plan Monday 2013 ~ Week of April 15th

The weeks have just been flying by so quickly that I haven't been able to keep up with menu planning and shopping lists!  After Easter, we ate leftovers the whole week!  Last week, I started a new weight loss challenge and was totally unprepared but managed to put together a bunch of low calorie meals that worked for me, mostly with items we already had in the house.  

This week, or at least today, I feel like I'm in a better place mentally and have been able to think ahead into the current week and what I'll be serving for dinners.  


Hamburgers and salad.
Today is our errand day, so I'll be keeping it simple for when we return home.


Beef Pot Pie and salad
The last time I made Katie's Spicy Shredded Beef recipe (one of our favorite meals),
I used the leftovers to make a pot pie!
It was AMAZING and I've been craving it ever since!
It's so delicious, I just know I'm going to have trouble sticking to a single portion!  


Taco Salad 
I'm trying to increase the amount of vegetables that we eat every day.
Personally, I'm eating a lot of salads and I really want to keep switching up the flavors
to keep from getting bored with all that lettuce!


Enchiladas and salad
I'm going to really have to eat my salad first during this meal!
It's so easy for me to over eat when I serve enchiladas for dinner!


Spaghetti & Meatballs, Rolls, Salad
Moving some things around in the freezer,
I found a bag of meatballs in sauce
that I froze after dinner a month or so ago.

Leftover night!  


Ham, Baked Beans, Potato Salad
We bought a ham for Easter that we didn't end up using.
Since it needs to be frozen or used and I don't have any room in the freezer,
we're going to enjoy it for dinner tonight and use most of the leftovers next week!  

Now that you know what we're eating this week, let us know in the comments what's for dinner at your house this week! Or, if you need more menu planning inspiration?
