Weekly Meal Plan - Week 2

I'm sorry this is late. I should have had this posted yesterday but really, Sunday afternoon would have been best. Unfortunately that didn't happen but here it is, nonetheless. I've taken out the breakfasts and lunches because I'm guessing they aren't as interesting as the dinners.

Monday: Leftover Italian Beef sandwiches (yummy Portillos!)

Tuesday: Chicken, spinach, tomato & mozzarella cheese
This is a recipe A invented and it's super simple yet very tasty. You can make your chicken anyway you like it. Tonight I sprinkled both sides of the tenderloins with Montreal Chicken Seasoning and then grilled it up on the Foreman Grill. While that is cooking, halve grape or cherry tomatoes, as many or as few as you want and then add them to a skillet over medium heat with about a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Let those soften up just a bit and then add half a bag of baby spinach. Cover the skillet and let that wilt. When your chicken is done, cut it into bite size pieces. Add the rest of the spinach and let that wilt as well. When all of the spinach is added and wilted down, add the chicken and a handful of mozzarella cheese. Stir that around until the cheese starts melting and then take it off the heat. The cheese will continue to melt a bit. Spoon it on your plates and enjoy!

Wednesday: Lipton Onion Soup Baked Chicken (I have an extra packet of the stuff) with mashed sweet potatoes (I never made them last week)

Thursday: Nachos made with Zesty Cheese & Bean Dip, black olives, salsa, sour cream and Tostitos Natural Yellow Corn Chips

Friday: Chicken Caprese - a Rachel Ray recipe recommended by my wonderful friend

Saturday: Chicken Pesto Pasta (I never made it from last week) & green beans

Sunday: Soft tacos made with Quorn and leftovers from the nachos and Chimichurri rice from Trader Joe's

There we go. Hopefully all goes to plan. The only day that might go awry is Sunday because we're (hopefully) going out with some friends we haven't seen in forever but I don't know what time of day and if it will involve eating so we shall see.

This is most likely what I'll be making on Monday of next week since I already have the stuff (can you tell I went to Trader Joe's this week?)

Monday: Asian Style Chicken Stir Fry and Chicken Fried Rice from Trader Joe's

I think I have one other rice side dish that I'll be making next week with some chicken dish since I have a bag of frozen chicken breasts and most are so huge that I cut them in half for us so they last pretty long.

Well I'll make another update next week. Hopefully I'll get it out a little earlier but if not, start with that Trader Joe's stir fry ;)
