Menu Plan Monday ~ January 14, 2008

I can't believe it! Last week I actually made every meal on my menu with one substitution; neither of the grocery stores I shop at had plain turkey tenderloin so I substituted a Jennie-O Lemon Herbed Tenderloin. They were on sale for half price too. It was very yummy and I'm glad I have another one in my freezer.

The steak burritoes were very simple to make with only a few ingredients and a crock pot. They were very good; I will be making them again soon.

The beef and beans ended up being too spicy for the kids so you ever make those, you may want to adjust the chili powder if you don't like spicy foods or have children.

Here's this week's menu. Weight Watchers points are in parenthesis and are based on the nutrition information provided with the recipe. I lost 3.8 pounds last week! Whoo hoo!

Monday (slow cooker): Apple Dijon Pork Roast (5) with 1/2 cup Stuffing (4) & 1 cup Green Beans (0) & Salad (1)

Tuesday: Lasagna with Homemade Garlic Bread & Salad (It's my daughter's birthday so I'm making her favorite food without regard for points. I'll be using my weekly points for this one.)

Wednesday: Terrific Turkey Meatloaf (5) with 1/2 cup Mashed Potatoes (3) and 1/2 cup Corn (1) & Salad (1)

Thursday (slow cooker): Barbeque Chicken Sandwiches (5) with 12 Oven Fries (3) & Salad (1)

Friday: Brown Rice Turkey Soup (5) with Sandwiches (7)

Saturday: Chicken Cutlets in Mushroom Sauce (3) with 1 cup Wild Rice (4) & 1/2 cup Peas (1)

Sunday: Leftover Buffet
