Meal Planner Monday
I'm not going to be so lucky. I will be cooking, but I'll be spending the evening with Chris and my OBGYN, so it will be somewhat enjoyable. That is, as long as Chris remembers to tell me I look pretty and the Doc tells me "It won't be long now Mrs. Izzo!"
I'm shifting to an easy routine this week. I'm entering week 38 of pregnancy and I'm finding myself very tired and run down, not to mention barely able to walk up right like a Homo sapien. Yes, I somewhat resemble an ape these days, slightly hunched over and holding my belly for extra support.
So, this week we're going to take it down a notch. I'm planning easier, faster meals (that require less standing) compared to the more adventurous meals I tend to make for the family. I'm going to TRY to take it easy this week. I'm selecting for you six fast and easy recipes to help you through your week.
Have a very romantic day and if you hate Valentine's Day, look forward to next Monday...it's Presidents Day...killer sales!!
Honey Mustard BBQ Chicken
Slow Cooker Taco Soup (You have to wait a long time for it to cook, but it is super fast and easy to prepare!!)
Spaghetti and Meatballs -consider making your own meat balls instead of buying those salty processed balls at the store! It's fun and they taste like real meat, but if you're really not up for it buy a bag of balls...go ahead, no one's looking!
Greek Pasta with Tomatoes and Beans
Grilled Chicken Panini
Bow Ties in Beef Blush Sauce
