Thoughts from the comfy chair: He is still a baby 


Meal Plan Monday 2-15-13

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was happy to spend time with my boys.

Who wouldn't want to spend all their time with these two? I mean look at those faces!!

But here we are at another Monday. We have a great giveaway this week! I have some work projects to finish, I need to get my house clean for my mother-in-law to come and visit and of course, I have got to get things ready for our new baby boy who is coming in just 12 more weeks (give or take)!

So, here is our Meal Plan Monday. 

Don't forget to get a copy of my free ebook and check out the WAHM series I have been working on

Monday: BBQ Pineapple Chicken in the crock pot. You just dump chicken breasts, thighs or leg quarters in your slow cooker with a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce and a can of pineapple! I am going to serve this with brown rice and roasted brussel sprouts. 

Tuesday: Lasagna. Did you know you NEVER have to boil lasagna noodles? Even if you don't get the oven ready kind? I am making mine with venison because I have a freezer full (how redneck do I sound?!) and cottage cheese because you really can't tell a difference sometimes and that's how The Pioneer Woman does it. 

Wednesday: Pizza Pot Pie with roasted green beens. 

Thursday: Summer Ravioli 

Friday: Tilapia Tacos!

Prosciutto and Kale with Orzo 

One of my favorite things to make is a pizza with caramelized onions and prosciutto. The salty and the sweet are incredible together.

What if I took my favorite elements of the pizza and made pasta I could throw in some baby bella mushrooms and the kale and the meaty baby bella and the bitter kale would balance each other. Right? Yes!
