Menu Plan Monday

I'm dealing with a lack of inspiration this week. This was all I was able to come up with!
What's on your menu for this week?

Menu Plan Monday

This week I stuck to my menu plan pretty well! The only one I had to omit was the Chicken Cordon Blu as I forgot to buy some ham. :( Oh well. The hubby and I also made Pumpkin White Chocolate Cookies and Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies for some friends we had over earlier in the week. I made the pumpkin cookies last fall and we LOVED them. They are going to be a fall staple in our household!

My menu plan for this week has some repeats, either because I haven't gotten around to making them or because we (I) loved them so much the first time around. I made the White Chicken Chili last night and it's to die for.

Have a great week!

Menu Plan Monday

Yes, I know I am a day early! Last week I completely forgot to menu plan. It was my first full week of a new job and I was swamped with work. I came home every night having no idea what to cook! I wasn't able to go grocery shopping until later in the week, forcing me to deal with what I had in the fridge. :/ This is not going to happen this week!

I've went ahead of myself and started jotting down ideas on Friday. The hubbs and I are trying to eat healthier! My hubby just finished his cardiologist sequence where he learned A LOT about healthy eating. His professors continuously stressed eating a Mediterranean diet; fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, nuts, and whole grains. Hence the salmon recipe listed here today. When I was finally able to go to the store last week I bought carrots, grapes, strawberries, lettuce, and corn. Today we will be making a second trip to pick up some more ingredients for our new recipes, as well as a bottle of red wine and green tea leaves (very important aspect of the Mediterranean diet, having a glass of red wine with dinner every night).

I am also going to try to implement salmon into our weekly menu. Red meat will be taking a back seat, as it is not recommended to eat very often. I have NEVER made salmon, I'm a little nervous! I have no idea how to make it! I did some searching through my cooking magazines and blogs online. I found an awesome recipe on, Alaska Salmon Bake. It sounds delicious and has great reviews. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Here is the Menu Plan for the week, in no particular order.

How are you trying to eat healthier? Have you tried to follow the Mediterranean diet, or do you already?
