Menu Plan Monday, April 23rd to April 29th
Join us for Menu Plan Monday at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
Last week was a busy week around here and I haven't been feeling my best. You know how it is when you aren't sick enough to stay in the bed all day but you aren't feeling good either. It's almost more frustrating than being full blown sick, you don't feel good enough to do anything but you don't feel completely awful either.
This will be week number three for my husband on The Cardiac Diet. He is adjusting pretty good to the diet, and everyone in the house has been eating the heart-healthy meals. He has dropped a total of 10 pounds now, but the scale hasn't moved for me yet. How does that happen? I guess I need to look at it as the goal is to be healthier not necessarily skinnier!
We tried several new recipes last week since we are having to change our entire way of cooking and I must say they were all hits. So if you are looking for heart healthy recipes you might want to check out my menu from last week, as all of the recipes we used last week will be added to our regular cooking rotation and I highly recommend them.
Here's what I have on the menu for this week:
links to recipes are in red
Monday: Baked Cod, Crispy Seasoned Oven Fries (we have tried these a few times now and love them)
Tuesday: Honey Crusted Chicken (new recipe), Classic Boston Baked Beans (although we will be leaving off the bacon, the recipe is in the Mayo Clinic heart healthy section but bacon is listed as a big no-no on the list from my husband's doctor)
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas (recipe to post soon)
Thursday: Baked Salmon Patties (will be using a variation of my normal Salmon Patty recipe and will post the recipe soon), Crispy Seasoned Oven Fries
Friday: Pineapple Chicken with brown rice instead of white rice
Saturday: Trout-in-a-Pouch with Fresh Herbs and Garlic, Wild Rice
Sunday: leftover night
