Meal Plan - 1/13 - 1/19

Here is my meal plan for this week.  If any of the recipes turn out great, I will be sharing them in future posts.  If you want any of the recipes before I have a chance to see if they are good, just ask and I will add them :)  Some meals are pathetic, and please keep in mind I am trying to get away from processed food, but I am not going to quit cold turkey.

These are just main dish plans.  So it doesn't seem like enough food, but fruits and veggies will be added, as well as rice or pasta when it fits the meal.

I also plan to serve a big salad right before dinner, so Michael and I can fill up on salad before we eat the main meal.

Sunday 1/13
Breakfast: Breakfast Smoothie
Lunch: Probably something crappy like raviolis or ramen
Dinner: Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Monday 1/14
B: Banana Blueberry Smoothie
L: Caesar Tortellini
D: Penne with Spinach Sauce

Tuesday 1/15
B: Fruit and Cheese (pretty much just what it says)
D: Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Garlic Chicken Breast

Wednesday 1/16
B: Breakfast Burritos
L: Ultimate Chicken-Pasta Salad
D: Teriyaki Steak Lettuce Wraps

Thursday 1/17
B: Green Smoothie (never tried a green smoothie, we will see how gross it is...)
L: Tuna Sandwich
D: Baked Pork Chops

Friday 1/18
B: Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie
L: Popcorn Party Day (I watch a movie with the girls and we eat popcorn, cheese, fruits and veggies)
D: Frozen Pizza

Saturday 1/19
B: Sweet Peach Smoothie
D: Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Chicken Breast (Yes, I know its already planned for Tuesday, but I can't really make a portion for two people in a slow cooker, and I can't really have it sit in the fridge for a couple weeks either.  Hopefully its not gross.)

SparkRecipes.  Almost all of them were "diet recipes" so they used non-fat milk, yogurt, mayonnaise, etc.  I would rather have the extra calories and get all the goodness of the fat, along with less chemicals and processing.

This post may be linked up with one or more of these wonderful blog hops:


  1. Sounds yummy! Can you share some of your recipes? Like the chicken... and the pasta salad?

    1. After I make them and find out if they are good or not, I will post the yummy ones :)

  2. Rachel, did you like the Broiled Tilapia Parmesan? I tried it tonight (the recipe off the site you posted). We loved it. I made a little too much "sauce" because I only did 3 fillets, but it was way better than the other way I make tilapia. And it took much less time. It's a keeper for us. Hope you guys enjoyed it too. I really like the site you mentioned, I have found many recipes I want to try already there. Tomorrow night I am going to try Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas.

    1. I ended up having the salmon recipe I had planned for a different day. Michael is being a little unenthusiastic about my getting back into meal planning. For instance tonight we were supposed to have Penne with Spinach Sauce but ended up switching for Friday's frozen pizza :( He isn't digging the "diet food" I am making. I have had the Broiled Tilapia Parmesan quite a few times (from various websites, not the exact recipe), and its actually one that we both really like. I always end up with a little to much sauce too. The salmon I made was really gross actually, and we ended up just scraping the sauce off and giving it to the dog, and eating the fish plain.

    2. Oh sad about your salmon. It is so discouraging (to me at least) when I finally try something new and it doesn't turn out like I thought it would taste. I went shopping at Waremart today (with my coupon)and got a bunch of staples I was running low on and some ingredients I didn't have for recipes I want to try.

    3. I am fixing Tilapia tonight and decided to try the Parmesan recipe. My husband and daughter are fans of anything Parmesan. Eager to taste it.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
