My Super Busy week ahead

We have a super busy week ahead..... I'm busy at work and my baby will be turning 16 on Wednesday! AH! So, that includes birthday dinner. And, I am in the middle of throwing her a surprise party on Friday night. Then Saturday she has a competition and a basketball game to cheer at all in one day. Sunday might be my next day to breathe. So this week's menu is going to be easy on me.

Side note: I made the marinated London Broil that I had found the recipe online and no one liked it. Fail!
And, for the Super Bowl I went a little crazy...  I made wings, pizza dip, meatball sliders, smokies in a blanket and best of all I made Fudgy Black Bean Brownies. YUM! Don't tell my family they have black beans in them!
  • Super Bowl Leftovers! Including Buffalo Chicken Stuffed French Bread from Dream Dinners that will go nicely with those leftovers
  • Creamy Thai Shrimp with Coconut Rice from Dream Dinners
  • Birthday Night out for Jazzy to Red Robin
  • Chicken and Pasta of some sort- I have a Philadelphia Cooking Cream in my fridge I want to use.
  • Friday Night surprise party- details later

Meal Plan for the week of Jan. 30


I'm ready to get back on track with some menu planning...

On Thursday I am going to Dream Dinners. I bought this deal on Living Social so long ago and now that's about to expire I need to go make some dinners. I will come home with six meals (serve 3 each) to put in my freezer. Which sounds great expect I better start clearing out my freezer a little more. I had to pick only from there Feb. menu so, here's what I'll be making there: Creamy Thai Shrimp with Coconut Rice (2), Buffalo Chicken Stuffed French Bread, Pesto Cheese Ravioli with Chicken and Walnuts, Baked Chicken Tetrazzini, and Old Fashioned Meatloaf with Twice Baked Potatoes. Not sure yet what the calorie count is on all of these but they all sound good.

This week I'm making:

Southwest Chicken with black beans
Dream Dinner
leftovers x2
Super Bowl Food: Wings, Smokies in a blanket, Popper Dip
