It has been a long time since I wrote a menu plan Monday post and I'm really stoked to do it this week. I have been so short on time lately, that I haven't even written a post yet to tell you all that I have re-entered the world of Weight Watchers. After a summer of living it up at the shore I have quite a few too many extra pounds again. So far I've been doing it for about 3-4 weeks and I've only lost a total of 2 lbs. as I haven't really amped it up yet & then there was of course Thanksgiving ;)
So here is my plan for the week, with the WW points. Also, I only usually post dinners, but I wanted to link up to this recipe for little one point breakfast cups that you can freeze and microwave any day you want a hot little breakfast (or snack). I'm going to be making these and freezing them to just have on hand.
Little side note- I also never post my vegetables as I kind of fly by the seat of my pants with those, but usually a pasta dish is served with salad and then spinach or broccoli is usually a veggie side. Since my main dish on Monday is so low point I might add a baked potato or sweet potato.
Monday- Thin sliced porkchops with shake & bake - 3 pts. for 4oz.
Tuesday- My old standby Springtime Pasta (I really do eat this almost every other week I think) It makes 6 servings at 6-7 points each (depending on which garlic & herb cheese spread you use)
Wednesday- The first Meatloaf recipe mentioned here except I use half ground turkey and half beef, eliminate the brown sugar and it's only 3 pts. per serving (6 servings)
Thursday- I'm going out to dinner with a friend (woohoo!) so Marc will be eating Springtime Pasta leftovers =)
Friday- Creamy Chicken & Mushrooms Macaroni casserole (While you are there, there are tons of great recipes on her site) 5 pts. per 1 cup serving
Sunday- Bruschetta Chicken Bake (another old standby ;o) 6 pts.
