Menu Plan Monday - Jan 19th '09

Yes I KNOW this post is a day late....blame it on my pregnancy and a LOT of stuff going on right now! Seriously...I forgot that the little person inside isn't just growing, he/she is also sucking my brain dry of my smarts. I occasionally lose command of English, so being late with my menu plan is a small boo-boo in the grand scheme :)

In spite of being without a computer for a few weeks, I did still keep up with making menu plans, but I had been so tired at the end of every day (and nauseous....like clockwork, every day at 4pm) I didn't have much tolerance or energy for cooking. Hubby stepped in and rescued me a few times, and we had enough leftovers and frozen stuff to get by for the other days. But as I'm coming to the end of my first trimester, I'm back in the saddle!

This week I'm not trying any new recipes, but I am going to make double Spinach lasagnas on Friday - one will get cut in half and go directly into the freezer for future meals. I've got to get in the habit of doing that more, I want to have several meals frozen and ready when the baby comes in August but if I wait until summer to start making that part of the plan it will never happen. I've also got plans to make blueberry and cranberry muffins, to capitalize on a really good fruit sale this week.
