Weekly Menu: Week 17

Better late than never??!! It’s been one of those weeks, ya know?!

Now that we’re Facebook official, I feel relieved.

13 Months

There is a baby on the way, folks. And this particular baby does not like:

  1. Meat
  2. Salad
  3. Anything that doesn’t contain at least 50% carbs

Hence, the reason why my menu plans have been positively carb-o-licious for the past several weeks. I haven’t even been able to bring myself to prepare most of the planned meals that contained meat…much to my husband’s dismay. My poor, meat-deficient husband.

Hopefully, this passes soon, because I can only eat so many crackers. I’m (sort of) happy to report that much like during my previous pregnancy, I am fully capable of eating pho several (most) days of the week. So, luckily I’m receiving some sort of nutritional value from the veggies and bone broth in that.

Hopefully, THAT doesn’t pass soon. Because mama loves her some pho!

In any case, we have several weeks to go, as I’m not quite through the first trimester yet. But, we’re excited and can’t wait to see how much more “lively” our household becomes with two.

This week is no exception to the “carb-friendly” thing that I’m experiencing these days. You’ll have to bear with me for a while until I’ve fully excited this phase.

Weekly Menu: Week 14

How did everyone do with last week’s plan?! Did you make one recipe? Two? Three? The whole darn thing??

I made most of the recipes, but I definitely didn’t get it done over the weekend. I enlisted a combination of “wing’ it” and “call in some help from mom” this week. I did manage to throw together my Italian Mixed Green Salad with Pasta and Herbs, and my mom very lovingly cooked the PaleOMG Meat Sauce (and had it warm and waiting when I got home from work, to boot), but that was about the extent of it.

This week, I fully intend to get my crap together and actually cook the full menu.

Despite the fact that my brain kept whispering “pasta…pasta…pasta” while I was planning this week’s menu, I tried to throw some non-pasta dishes in. Pasta seems to be my go-to lately, even though the rest of the family is not all that fond of pasta in most forms.

I sourced all of the new recipes this week from Tasty Kitchen, which is one of my favorite recipe collection sites. I had intended on just going on there to take a look, but I just couldn’t pull myself away!

There’s no way I could walk away from these breakfast burritos.

Impossible.

Here’s the menu for this week:

 

I’m probably a little too excited about the Italian Sausage, Kale and Blistered Tomato Fettuccine.

Here’s the grocery list for 4/1/13-4/5/13 and the Plan 040113-040513!

Just remember that items from the freezer are not included on the grocery list, so if you want to make those to stock your freezer for the future, be sure to add them to your grocery list!

Have a great week everyone!
