menu planning monday 02.02.09

We had a good week last week watching our calories.  Chef D lost another 4 lbs. giving him about a 20 lb. weight loss since January 4.  I lost 2 more lbs. and am down about 14 lbs. :)  It seems that counting calories is helping so I will continue to try to choose dinner meals that are 500 calories or less.  I will try to note what the calorie count is for each of the menus posted.  This week's menu will be using up some of the frozen meat/fish in the freezer.


Monday:  Shrimp and Pasta (411 calories -- with a few adjustments from this recipe)

Tuesday:  Grilled Spicy Tex-Mex Chicken (136 calories/4 ounces) with miniature ravioli (135 calories) with sauce (20 calories) and a side of steamed broccoli (25 calories)

Apprehension-Free Wednesday: Dinner served at church will be roast beef, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad and dessert.

Thursday: Fish Tacos (290 calories each) with salsa and gaucamole

Friday:  Scrapbooking Crop for the girls, Boys' Night Out for the boys.  

Saturday:  No sous-chef Saturday this week because we will be attending a wedding and reception this afternoon

Hospitality Sunday: TBD.

Many thanks to Laura at OrgJunkie for hosting Menu Planning Monday each week.  Check it out for more menu planning ideas!
