Weekly Menu Plan ~ January 25, 2009

Here we are at the end of January.  Let the SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) begin.  I always thought that this was a joke in the past, but maybe there is something to it.  Boy, have I been cranky lately!  Maybe I should go hop in the tanning bed and get some “light therapy”!  Just kidding.  I’ll take a little sleepiness & crankiness over skin cancer.  I just hope that Mr. Groundhog doesn’t see his shadow next Monday and we have an early Spring!  That would be very, very much appreciated!  Hear that Punxsutawney Phil? 

On with the plan.  Nothing really special going on this week.  Just keep on keeping on.  Report cards are coming out Monday.  Hockey continues, as does figure skating. 

Sunday ~ Breakfast for dinner (omelets, sweet potato hash browns & toast)

Monday ~ Lemon Butter Tilapia, quinoa, sauteed okra & spinach salad

Tuesday ~ Bourbon Chicken, brown rice, steamed broccoli & salad.

Wednesday ~ Homemade Mac & Cheese w/quinoa pasta, baked beans, salad & veggies

Thursday ~ Herb Roasted Pork Loin roast, mashed potatoes, steamed sugar snap peas & salad

Friday ~ Homemade pizza (cheese & pepperoni) and salad.

Saturday ~ Pei Wei or leftovers

Baked Goods


Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Banana Bread

  1. Hi Kim,

    The “SAD” has set in at my house too! LOL! Hey, I’ve noticed that you include some type of fish just about every week in your menu plan. I think that’s great. I’ve tried to do that in the past, but received less than great reviews from my family. The only way my husband will eat it is fried in batter. Eeek! Anyway, I decided that I would try to have fish for my lunch this afternoon. I’ve only had salmon once that I can remember, but after seeing your blog, decided to give it another try. I fried it up in a pan with some light caesar dressing and plopped it on top of some mixed greens. Boy, was it yummy! I may even get the guts to try it on the family. Thanks for the weekly inspiration to eat healthier!!!


  2. Hi Lisa!

    My family isn’t really big on fish either, though DH will eat salmon and fried tilapia. The lemon butter tilapia is a new recipe, we shall see how that goes over. Jon eats salmon b/c I pretty much make him. 😉 Bribing with GF desserts doesn’t hurt. 🙂

    Thanks for the compliments. I am glad I can inspire others to eat healthy. 🙂

    The salmon with the caesar dressing sounds good! I bet Jon would like that…he is a big fan of caesar dressing.
