Meals for the Week

Well, I started to plan for this week's meals in the midst of planning for Tickle's birthday party and getting ready for company. Then, I dropped my list somewhere in the grocery store... I write my meals on one side of the paper and my grocery list on the back, so losing it means losing the whole plan.

I didn't have time to reconstruct the meal plan until today, which is too late to thaw meat for tonight. So, I'm switching it all around. Here goes:

Bean Burrito Casserole with fresh guacamole (thanks to my mom who brings avocados almost every time she visits) and a BIG salad. We'll also have leftover Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake with Ice Cream. (Post about Tickle's birthday coming next.)
Make yogurt in the morning so it can culture all day.
Bake a triple batch of Banana Nut Muffins. I happen to really love muffins these days... call it a pregnancy craving, if you'd like.
Supper -- Cook a Crock Pot Chicken to serve with oven roasted potatoes and green beans.
I think I can skip my baking day since I've still got a stash in the freezer, although I may make cookies for my husband's Bible Study that night.
Supper -- Use the leftover chicken for Chicken in Garlic Parsley Sauce over Brown Rice again. It was a hit! I'll do a big salad again as half of the meal.
Crock Pot Roast (our Grass-Fed Beef) with potatoes and lots of greens with carrots. I really miss my produce box because it is so hard to find good, organic greens at my Kroger.
Taco Salad made with the leftover beef, beans and all the veggies. It's too bad my avocados won't last until the end of the week!
