Weekly Meal Plan - Week 4

Hey look, for once I'm on time with my meal plan! This past weeks grocery total was a record low for us so that was cool and from the looks of my grocery list for this week it's going to be another cheap trip to Kroger. Yay!

Monday: Alphabet Pasta with Great Northern Beans, Italian bread and broccoli

Tuesday: Spinach salad with strawberries and walnuts

Wednesday: Leftover creole with brown rice

Thursday: Asian chicken stir fry

Friday: Lentil soup (recipe from This Week for Dinner)

Saturday: Creamy bow-tie pasta with chicken and broccoli (recipe from

Sunday: Creamy rice, chicken and spinach (recipe from - I'm trying to use up some cream cheese with these last two recipes


Everything else is going well here. My parents are coming to visit soon so we're all very excited about that. K is doing wonderfully. Everyday she talks more, asks more questions, gets taller... I'm getting ready to start her in 4T clothing. This girl is going to be taller than me in a matter of years. =D  Her tushy is basically all healed although it's still red and splotchy. I'm hoping this will fade over time and isn't going to be a scar. We're looking forward to spending some time with friends this week. Even though we had some rough weather last week we were still able to go to the mall playground, Toys R Us to visit the toys, and to Barnes and Noble to play with the trains. She's filled another potty chart so I have some trains on order. We're going to have to figure something out because if she continues going potty as much as she is, we're going to end up with WAY too many trains. At what point do you stop giving rewards for potty training? Also, does anyone have a suggestion on how to get a kiddo to wear underpants? She does great if she isn't wearing anything on the bottom but she doesn't want to wear underpants. I don't know if they feel uncomfortable to her or what but I don't have any ideas. I'm hoping someone else out there might have a suggestion, please!!!

  1. Yay, you posted!! Sounds like a yummy week in your house. I think this week we are doing chicken club sandwiches, chicken and veggie stir fry and shrimp pasta.

    Glad Kaitie's doing so well with the potty training!! I guess it's a good thing to have an issue with too many trains huh? :)
