It’s that time again!  We didn’t use all of our meals this past week so some are repeats.  Also, I planned the next 2 weeks using lots of ingredients from our freezer and/or pantry in order to save some money.  The hubby & I need new shoes since we’re working out so much…yay!   Here’s what we’ll be munching on this week…

MondayStuffed Bell Peppers, Steamed Broccoli, Guacamole w/ Crackers

Ok, I promise I have still been making meal plans and cooking healthy…I’ve just been really bad at getting them posted so that you can see!  Just for the record, my total weight loss of 2010 is now up to 17 pounds!  Woohoo!  We are still thoroughly enjoying trying new recipes each week.  However, some evenings I have to make myself cook after a long day.  Knowing what I am cooking in advance really helps me get in gear though.  Here’s what we’re up to this week…

Sunday:  Stir Fried Steak & Veggies, Oven Fries (Weird combo but I need to use the potatoes before they go bad!)

Monday:  Leftovers

Tuesday:  Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi, Brown Rice, Eggplant, Sweet Potatoes

Wednesday:  Stuffed Bell Peppers, Sauteed Fresh Spinach

Thursday:  Chicken Provolone, Slow Cooker Veggie Rice

Friday:  Hearty Bean Burritos, Corn Chips & Salsa

Saturday:  Country Chicken with Gravy, Leftover Sides

Extras:  Lara-Type Bars, Apple Bread (I will probably leave the topping off next time to reduce the sugar content…but the bread is really good!)
