Menu Plan Monday 2014 ~ Week of July 21st

We're busy most of this week around dinner time, so meals will be easy this week.  Super-easy.  If I don't keep things simple, I'll want to resort to take-out every night and I can't afford to do that.  Our wallet and my diet just can't handle take-out and fast food all week long!  

Speaking of dieting, I took a break this past week.  Mentally, I just couldn't do it.  I was dealing with a lot of stress last week and Grace was really pushing my buttons on top of all of that.  I ate what I wanted and didn't count a single point (Weight Watchers).  But, I'm ready to get back into the swing of things and start the week off with healthy choices.  

I'll be drinking lots of smoothies for breakfast this week and since I'll be following the Simply Filling Plan again (Simple Start for WW beginners), eggs and potatoes will also be part of my daily routine.  Probably for lunch.  


Brunswick Stew 
I'll use leftover Balsamic Pork for this delicious stew.  


MorningStar Farms Burgers
Roasted Acorn Squash 
I have some burgers left in the freezer from my MorningStar Farms
House Party this weekend.
I'll serve them up on some low point sandwich thin buns
and serve some roasted acorn squash instead of fries.  


Taco Salad
I've been loving taco salads for lunches and dinners for the past several weeks.
The flavors fool me into thinking I am eating junk food,
when really it's just some lean meat with some low-sodium taco seasoning!
I load up on the black beans and fat free refried beans and all that protein really helps keep me full!
No need for dressing with all of those great flavors!  


Leftover Night
This will be a fend for yourself night utilizing any leftovers available in the fridge.
This will not only keep meal time easy for me,
it will also give me a head start in cleaning out the refrigerator.


Coney Island Hot Dogs 
Grilled Potatoes
I've been wanting a Coney Island from Sonic for a few weeks now.
We're not very close to a Sonic, so unless we are heading that way
for other stuff, we rarely get there anymore.
I have some low-cal hot dog sauce and reduced fat hot dogs
that will be perfect for this fast food knock-off.
