I wanted to make this month a fun food month so that ideally we don't even miss eating out. So last Monday I headed to the grocery store to stock up on our weeks grub!
On the menu for last week:
- Stuffed bell peppers
- Parmesan Tilapia with sauteed veggies
- Sauteed shrimp over spinach & feta orzo pasta
- Big salad (ha! that's our version of a salad with all kinds of goodies on it...turkey, bacon, egg, avocado, etc.)
- Chicken Quesadillas
I'm also realistic and know that there are days I won't want to cook dinner and will be running late in the morning and won't have time to pack a lunch so I've got got that covered buy buying a few of the heat and serve skillet meals and hooray for the grocery store having a sale on Healthy Choice "nuke-a-meals" (that's what I call frozen lunches).
Turns out the Tilapia didn't make the cut last week since two nights we were at events and fed there so between leftovers and sandwiches we had plenty of food in the fridge.
The hard part is coming up with new stuff- I mean you can only have meat sauce and a different kind of noodle and call it something different lasagna, spaghetti, ziti so many times before it's just noodles with meat sauce.
Anyone have any fun dinner ideas???
