menu planning monday 03.30.09

Baseball season has begun and last week was so crazy that I let Chef D handle the menu planning.  Chef D's version of menu planning is cooking up LOTS of meat to have available during the week.  It definitely helped to reduce my stress.  But, it is back to my turn again and we only have 2 practices and no games this week.

Our weight-loss accountability program at church ended today.  Chef D came in 2nd place with an 11.8% loss of total body weight.  I came in 3rd with a 9.86% loss of total body weight.   We will begin another 8-week program starting next Sunday...just to help us stay in gear:)  So, in honor of our wins, I am again including calorie counts where available.

Monday: Marinated and grilled Portobello Mushrooms with steamed asparagus

Tuesday: Lemon Pepper Shrimp Scampi (403 calories); Strawberry Blueberry Crepes for our bible reading group dessert. {ended up using this recipe for the shrimp instead -- yummy!)

Apprehension-Free Wednesday: Dinner served at church will be Chicken Alfredo, green beans, salad and dessert with chicken fingers for the kiddos.

Thursday: Spicy Asian Noodles with Chicken (381 calories/1.75 cup serving) with sauteed snow peas

Friday: Fish Tacos (290 calories each) with pinto beans

I hope everyone has a great week!  For more ideas, go over to OrgJunkie and check out all the other menu plans:)
