June Meal Plan

Honestly, this pregnancy has really affected my domestic skills. I would much rather skip dinner {and eat a candy bar} and just lay with my feet up by the end of the evening when tom gets home, and a real honest-to-goodness meal has been far and few between. Ive been feeling pretty guilty. One thing I have never been very good at is getting meals organized in advance, but that is my goal so lets see how it goes! Im also going to be preparing quite a few freezer meals come august so when Henry arrives we have go-to meals already prepared.

PS-we are not fancy schmancy people. our taste buds are not cultured. We like casseroles and ramen. So if your thing is 3 course meals this is not for you!

{Im starting on Sunday, June 5th because thats the first full week we are back from vacation}

June 5- Taco salad
June 6- Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken
June 7- Brown Rice and Summer Veggies [this is from our fat-smash diet days. I saute tons of zucchini, onions, pepper, mix in black beans and diced tomatoes. Its really healthy and filling, so we are eating it every tuesday--adding chicken to it is yummy too, but we need a couple vegetarian days thrown in!}
June 8- Omlettes {Wed. is breakfast for dinner night}
June 9- Pepperoni Pasta salad {Thursday is Italian night}
June 10- Spicy Summer Soup {another fat-smash recipe. Pretty much all the same vegetables, i usually add corn too...and I make a tomato-based soup--and add a lot of spices to it}
June 11- Layered Salad, homemade bread, No-bake chocolate peanut butter cookies {sat. is dessert night}
June 12- Chicken and Black Bean Quesadillas with chipotle dipping sauce
June 13- Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf
June 14- Brown rice and veggies
June 15- Pancakes and sausage
June 16- Toms Tuna and Pea suprize {I have enrichment, so he gets to eat his favorite nasty concoction--penne, alfredo, peas and tuna. gag.}
June 17- Homemade pizza
June 18- Hamburger/Hot dog, Baked beans, Potato salad, Watermelon, Cheesecake
June 19- Steak, Homemade Cheddar Bacon bread, corn on the cob, salad {Daddy's pick}
June 20- BBQ-Ranch Chicken salad and homemade dinner rolls
