Meal Plan 1/1/2012

Having a week off with the kids has been great. Maddie and I were able to visit a few friends we don't see often and my best friend, Alec, and I were able to go do some outlet shopping, and I read the entire Hunger Games series. Today is the first day we are back to our schedules as normal. I will miss late nights with a good book and lazy mornings in pj's.

This week's meal plan is:

Monday-Deviled Crab Risotto
Tuesday-Shrimp Stir Fry
Wednesday- Ranch Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, peas
Thursday- Spaghetti and Meatballs
Saturday- Omelets for breakfast and leftovers for dinner
Sunday- Raviolis in a butternut squash sauce

Yesterday I made the "risotto" with lots of changes to the recipe. First I didn't add the Fresno chili. Second I didn't use arborio rice. We aren't fans of the texture of risotto, so I used acini de pepe 
and made it like you would risotto. Third I added some mushrooms. It was delicious. It tasted like clams casino. YUM!!!


  1. Delicious menu plan! Mine is far less tasty than yours -
    Monday - out (your house for me and the girls and Kev went for pizza)
    Tuesday - ham and potato chowder
    Wednesday - ravioli in meat sauce, salad
    Thursday - homemade chicken noodle soup
    Friday - meatloaf, baked potato, gr beans
    Saturday - leftovers
    Sunday - hoping the inlaws want to go to dinner lol!
