I got rather off track this past week, but still managed to lose -1.5lbs. I don’t know what I did to deserve that, but I’ll take it! Granted we did have a c-r-a-z-y week with a family member passing away, another family member in the hospital and so on. I’ve noticed that I tend to derail when life becomes stressful. I need to work on that!

So today, it’s back to eating healthy and exercising. I’m actually excited. I’ve felt like a water buffalo for the past two days and I think it’s because we’ve been eating out so much and lazing around.

Menu for the week:

Monday: Mediterranean Meatloaf Muffins (i’ll post the recipe tongiht!) and Sweet Potato Fries

Tuesday: Grill night! Stuffed Turkey Burgers, Salad and Black Bean Brownies

Wednesday: Black Bean and Rice Enchilladas

Thursday: Life Group Night (we go to someone’s house for dinner!)

Friday: Skillet Concert for Youth Group. DH and teens will hit the concessions hard; I’ll probably pack a sandwich & fruit.

Did you have a nice Easter? We did! My husband and I entertained all weekend! His family came down on Saturday, His mom on Sunday, and we had friends over last night for games and finger foods. It was a great weekend, but I’m exhausted. The good news is, well besides “He is Risen”, is that the dishes are all done!

Over the course of the weekend I made: Mac N’ Cheesey, Egg & Turkey Sausage Fritta, Pot Roast with Veggies, more Mac N’Cheesey (we took the first one to a pot luck), Cornbread, Green Beans with Slivered Almonds, Turkey Chili and Apple pie. Menu Planning will be light this week because we have a ton of leftovers!

Monday: Leftovers!

Tuesday:  Homemade Corn Dogs and Leftover Chili

Wednesday: Kath’s Pumpkin Parmesan Pasta  I’ve been drooling over this dish since she posted it last week.  Doesn’t it look great?  I might add some dried cranberries, but that would be the only change.  Check out Kath Eat’s Real Food for more of her great recipe ideas!

Thursday: Pioneer Woman’s Asian Noodle Salad, but much, much, much lighter.
