menu planning monday 03.16.09

Schedules went all awry last week and I did not get to try the two new recipes I had posted and linked.  I am going to try one of them again this week.  It is Spring Break for my children (for both the two in elementary school as well as my college girl) so our schedules are a little different this week, too.  We have lots of ball practices so I picked out some meals that can either be made in advance or cook while we are gone (crockpot, etc).

Weigh-in this week was good for Chef D (down 3 lbs!), but not so pretty for me (gained 1 lb).  Although I kept up with my exercising, I did not do as well with my water intake and tracking the food I ate.  I will do better this week!

Monday: Spicy Honey Chicken with Spinach Apple Salad [baseball practice 5-7 pm]

Tuesday: Three-Cheese Chicken Pasta Bake [baseball practice 5-7 pm]

Wednesday:  Dinner at church this week will be Chicken Enchiladas.

Thursday: Tilapia in foil packets/Crockpot with whole-grain pilaf and crudites  [baseball 6-8 pm] [edited to add:  this tilapia recipe did NOT work for us at all -- I will not make it again]
