Meal Plan

So, in order to assure that we wouldn't be eating out this week (something we did, oh, most of the weekend) I was up at 3 a.m. this morning (couldn't sleep) writing a meal plan and grocery list.  Garret was kind enough to tell me to get some sleep, to not bother going into work with him, and that he would pick up what we needed.  So, although there is a lot of repetition, I thought I would share what we plan to have this week!

Lunch:  I believe this will be a simple frozen pizza to enjoy while I prep for dinner ( I didn't write anything up because I assumed I would be picking some sushi or whatnot up from the commissary for lunch).
Dinner:  Roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus and baked tomatoes.  Brownies for dessert with coffee.
Roasted Chicken, we just won't be doing these veggies!

Lunch:  Roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus.
Dinner:  Homemade chicken noodle soup with plenty of veggies and a salad on the side.

Lunch and Dinner:  Chicken noodle soup and salad (and nope, we never get sick of soup, so although it's a repeat we'll both eat it up!)

Lunch:  Chicken noodle soup (Tuesday and Thursday are the days G eats lunch at work, so we keep it simple for him.  That way he can eat at his desk if he wants and use his lunch time to run errands, read, etc.)
Dinner: Nicoise salad (salmon with eggs, fresh green beans, new potatoes, olives, tomato, etc.)

Friday (because of Lent we don't eat meat on Fridays, so I had to think on this....originally was going to be homemade pizza!)
Lunch: Dijon Salmon with roasted asparagus, roasted red potatoes and a salad with dijon vinaigrette.

Dinner: Thin spaghetti with garlic shrimp, mushrooms, and onions in a tomato sauce with salad and red wine.

I got hungry just typing this up!  Are you cooking anything super yummy this week?  Trying out any new recipes?  Perhaps being inspired by a recent dinner out (we do this a lot....copy meals we had out)?

(photos from the past year or so.....we've made all of this before)
