I wanted to start this post off with pictures of Rita’s Burpee Mile, and how it all went, but I sadly left my camera at the gym.  Can you believe it!?!  I’m not happy with myself, because there are some great pictures, and Rita did an amazing job.  I’ll have my camera back and a write-up of the Mile for you on Tuesday!

This morning:  I’m making the World’s Best Blueberry Muffins, and they are the BEST EVER!!  I already have all the ingredients, and the blueberries were on sale, so I figured they would be a nice treat this weekend.

On to this weeks menu.  Sadly my husband was affected by the recent government sequestration that hit a lot of government workers, and he has furlough time now.  In the interest of saving money, my goal is to use the food in our house and only have to shop for produce this week.  We have a lot of meat in our freezer, so I know this is doable.

Monday:  Chicken Enchiladas with Spanish rice and corn.  This is my own enchilada recipe, and I’ll do my best to get some pictures and type up the recipe for you this week.

Gluten free, diet noodles with peanut sauce recipe

Tuesday:  Spaghetti Squash Noodles with Thai Peanut Sauce from Family Fresh Cooking is my new “pin” recipe to try this week and it has me intrigued. The recipe looks delish, and I’m always looking for a healthier or cleaner version to my favorite Thai meals.  I think I will also add some shredded baked chicken breasts for more protein.

Thursday:  Caprese Pasta from Aris Menu.  This just screams yummy!

Friday: Breakfast for dinner!!  Of course we will have some fruit with our pancakes or waffles Smile

Saturday: Italian Wedding Soup…I make my own using ground turkey breast for the mini meatballs.

Sunday: We are having company over, so I’m thinking my Crock Pot Pulled Pork or grilling hamburgers and hot dogs.

What is on your menu this week?  Are you trying anything new?

    I hope it’s a very short term thing for your husband! That’s tough. Your menu looks awesome- I need to try that Caprese pasta soon!
