Menu Plan Monday - Feb 2nd '09

I've got to be honest. Menu planning has become even more of a challenge this week, because I have reached the point where food in general just makes me gag. Oh, the joys of pregnancy! I'm coming out of my 13th week, so this all *should* be passing soon...but the wait is agonizing :)

In spite of my own malcontent, I did manage to stick mostly to the menu plan last week - I did a grilled cheese dinner one night and we got hit with a stomach bug over the weekend so it's been seriously light fare for all of us since Friday. Since we're moving at the end of the month I'm working hard to plan meals around our stockpile...I don't really want to be moving 30 pounds of frozen meat! Resisting the sales is tough, but I know they'll come around again ; ) We're also out of town from Friday through Sunday, so this will be a short list...

Don't forget to visit I'm an Organizing Junkie for all of the other menu mamas!

monday - Leftovers!

tuesday - Chickpea Stew - never got to it last week! ($3.44 for 6-8 servings)

wednesday - Crockpot Fried Rice ($1.25 for 4 servings)

thursday - Kielbasa and Pasta ($3.10 for 6-8 servings)

friday thru sunday - Away to NYC for Comic Con...ooh the joys of nerd Valhalla :)

I hope you are feeling better soon. It is the worst when you don't feel like eating.

I remember having morning sickness the whole day. It was no fun at all! I even went to an accupuncturist in desperation.

But you are right: it seldomly lasts more than 16 weeks.

Good for you for sticking to your menu despite your nausea!

Having morning sickness is not fun, I hope it passes quickly for you. I'm going to have to check out that Crock Pot Fried Rice.

I'm going to have to steal your menus b/c I just don't have the energy to plan my own!

And, lol, I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one with sound barrier breaking burps. And, you're right. . . a dueling burp-off would sooooooo make You-Tube! lol

I want in on the e-mail when you and Rachel do the burp-off! Feel free to pop by and steal some of my meals from Mom Tip Monday this week. I hope it helps with the freezer a little before you move! (I hate moving food!)
