menu plan monday (june 6-12)

John and I have started planning a menu for the week. I resisted this as long as I possibly could - it's something my dad does...and I REALLY don't want to turn into him (just kidding dad!  I love you!).  I really hate doing it, but it's making life a little easier.Here's our menu for this week (pardon the exceptionally terrible photo): Monday: Balsamic Tortellini with veggies, etc. (i.e. throw some stuff in a pan and then mix it with tortellini) Tuesday: Spanish Style Noodles with Chicken and Sausage Wednesday: Shrimp Scampi (I have the actual cookbook, Eating For Life, that this came from, but here's a link if you're interested.  I don't make this exactly as the recipe says...surprise, surprise.  I usually add sauteed onions and peppers) Thursday: Quesadillas in some form or another. Friday: Marinated chicken (aka. freezer chicken...put some marinade and some chicken in a freezer bag and freeze it, when you need something for dinner, put it in the fridge until it's thawed...and cook it), and mashed potatoes with kale Saturday: who knows what I'll eat...John will be gone and I have to work. Sunday: Pesto and Crushed Tomato Pasta with salad You can see what other people are eating for dinner this week at:
