I just love a new month. Something about turning that page on the calendar always makes me feel a rush of anticipation, that feeling of a fresh start. I feel like I've put the bad stuff from the previous month away, just by the mere act of turning that page.
So, in honor of starting the month off right, here is my weekly meal plan.
Monday: Chicken soft tacos, brown rice, guacamole and beans
Tuesday: Leftover Mexican food
Wednesday: BBQ beef chili
Thursday: Stir fry w/ cooked chicken breasts and broccoli
Friday: BBQ chicken pita pizzas
Already made are grilled chicken breasts and BBQ beef chili. Today, since I have the day off, I'm making a yummy fiesta meal for supper. I have salad fixings, baby carrots, and prepped veggies for the stir fry. I need to pick up some fruit and the week is set.
Tip of the day: Freeze the Halloween candy your child is not going to eat this week and take it out in the mornings to put in his or her lunch pail. You are less likely to eat it if you risk breaking a tooth to do so!
