Meal Plan for the Week

I enjoy looking at other people's meal plans/menus for inspiration so I decided to go ahead and post again on this subject just for fun. I try to incorporate some really inexpensive meals with some fancier stuff. This menu isn't nailed in stone since I will have to see what I can find in the grocery store. None of the sales at the 3 major grocery stores in our area were very impressive this week. I did notice a lot of Mexican food on sale for Cinco de Mayo so we will definitely be having at least one Mexican meal and will be stocking up on salsa and sour cream.

Suppers for the Week:

Bean Burritos (new recipe from my new Taste of Home's 5-Ingredient cookbook) Made with salsa, rice, beans, cheese, and I'm going to throw in some canned chilis since we like them

Salmon with dill sauce and baked potatoes (new recipe from that same cookbook mentioned above) We're trying to eat more salmon since we love it and it's one of the 14 Superfoods!

Crabby Alfredo (imitation crabmeat in Alfredo sauce on top of egg noodles (also a new recipe from above cookbook) homemade breadsticks and salad

Cheesy Chicken (Chicken with cheesy crumb coating, also new recipe from above cookbook)
Vegetables and rice on the side

Tuna Noodle Casserole (Mom's recipe and one of my favorite comfort foods; easy to make too!) French bread, jell-o and fruit

Spaghetti (An inexpensive stand-by that is quick and easy and we have the stuff on hand already. I've been experimenting with making my own sauce using canned tomatoes (since I have a ton from the Safeway deal a while back), frozen green peppers, and various herbs and spices and it's really yummy!) Garlic toast and veggies or salad

Breakfasts:
Usually cold cereal or toast

Lunches:
Leftovers, homemade mac n' cheese, or PB sandwiches

Snacks:
Cottage cheese (I'm trying to get more protein for Justus's sake)
Yogurt
Pretzels
Goldfish crackers
Homemade bread
Fruit
Popcorn

Yum Yum!! I'm trying to get more protein too and so I'm glad I like cottage cheese since it's a good snack.
My appetite has been so weird lately. Starving one day and not hungry the next. How about you? Is little Justus still nice and laid back in the womb?
