Menu Plan Monday - 1/31/11 and Mamavation

(just a happy picture - my daughter Tess, my MIL Karen, me, and my daughter Tara)

Wow, where did January go? The time is just flying by for our busy family, and I'll bet your's too!!!

This past weekend was full of crafting, cleaning, picking up my first Angel Food Ministries food boxes, posting a magazine giveaway at Apronista, updating the Flirty Apron Swap with more giveaways, traveling to a great Thirty One Gifts Celebrate and Connect meeting, working on our church's womens retreat, planning this Thursday's Chill MAMAs Supper Swap, signing up the troop for more girl scout cookie booth sales, and, of course, laundry and exercise! Whew - I need another weekend to rest from this one!

Thank goodness for menu planning --
Monday 1/31 - Navy Bean & Ham Soup
Tuesday 2/1 - Weight Watchers @ Work - Thai Chicken Salad
Wednesday 2/2 - New York Steak and Baked Potatoes
Thursday 2/3 - Supper Swap - Chicken Enchiladas
Friday 2/4 - Spaghetti and Meatballs
Saturday 2/5 - Minestrone Soup
Sunday 2/6 - 3-Packet Pot Roast


Monday is also Mamavation Monday. The inspiring Pete Cohen is our guest this week. AND, Earth Footwear is sponsoring a giveaway of a pair of shoes when we address this question:

Question: What does “wellness” mean to you?

Wellness is a state of being for me -- I strive for a balanced life of eating a variety of foods, exercising my body and mind, and feeling good. Some days are better than others, but I feel better now than I have in a couple of years.

No weight loss to report this week, but I'm exercising again and considering my meals and portion sizes again.

Great meal plan! Are these healthy recipes? My goal this week is to make some healthier dinners. At least 2 this week. :-)

What a great family photo. I love all your smiling faces... I guess the family that cooks (and eats) together, stays (slim) together?

Yummy menu!

You are one busy lady!!! When would you like my stuff? Did you want to come over and get or do you want me drop it off?

I know it was a couple of weeks ago, but sounds like you had one heck of a busy weekend. Hope you're all rested up from it now. LOL~
