Menu Plan Monday 2014 ~ Week of August 11th

Last week was drama-filled and stressful.  I wasn't able to work on a menu plan, nor did I care much about exercise or weight loss.  Mainly we ate a lot of quick thing like sandwiches or hot dogs.  One night I made some delicious fried chicken and Joe and I even had dinner out one night...dinner that did not require shouting into a speaker from the car window!  

This week, I'd like to get back on track with my diet and am looking forward to some healthy dinner choices.  


Lemon Fettuccine with Carrots 
After all of the not so healthy choices I made last week,
I think this light meal is what's needed
to start the week off on the right track!  


Spanish Quinoa 
Corn Quesadillas 
I've been toying with the idea of replacing our rice with Quinoa
in our favorite Spanish Rice recipe.
Great minds think alike since my buddy Nicole from Colie's Kitchen
obviously had the same idea!
Check out her recipe by clicking the link above!  


Chicken Fajita Soup
All this back to school talk has me thinking about the autumn
and all of the fall-weather comfort foods.
Trying a new recipe for soup this week,
I'll be sure to share if it's a success!


Leftover Night 


Chili over Quinoa 
Another quinoa idea that's been inspired by my buddy Nicole!
So loving quinoa right now!  


Family BBQ
I'll probably bring something a little on the healthy side
so I won't have an excuse to pig out all day!
Sure, I'll probably cheat, but not too much since
Weigh In Day is Sunday!


Chicken Taco Salads 
A big batch of chicken taco filling is just
what I need in the fridge!
A little goes a long way when added to fat free
refried beans and some fat free salsa
on top of a bed of lettuce!

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?
