    Weeee... starting a new diet Monday to see if it helps my tummy issues. Pretty much a Mediterranean Diet but without the things I can't eat due to other problems. Whole grains, veggies and fruit, lower fat, lean protein, beans... that sort of thing. I won't be perfect I know that, but hopefully this can help settle stuff down. Plus, I need to lose weight which will also help my health.

    Breakfast: Vanilla greek yogurt with frozen strawberries and mango
    Lunch: Teriyaki chicken meatballs with rice, steamed veggies, and kimchi
    Snack: Triskets with laughing cow cheese

    Yesterday: Turkey, stuffing, and green bean casserole
    Tonight: L/O
    Monday: L/O
    Tuesday: L/O
    Wednesday: L/O
    Thursday: Instant pot coconut tandoori chicken with rice and steamed broccoli
    Friday: L/O

    It's been a few weeks, but I've been cooking away - I pulled off Thanksgiving and a dessert party on Saturday, so while I have no turkey, I do have a few sides (and a lot of fruit and cheese) to get rid of to start the week...

    Sun - Lemon Dill Baked Fresh Salmon filets (got a great deal yesterday b/c no one eats fish while they are having turkey:)), Leftover Stuffing, Homemade Dual Apple Fruit Tart (used my homemade Maple Honey Cooked Granny Smith Apples dish with a chopped Galas apples from last night's Apple Pie meets a Fruit Plate dish), Fresh Blackberries
    Mon - Stouffer's Lasagna (still have to buy this, but I don't wanna cook real food yet, and pasta seems great after no pasta for weeks - if I don't buy this, it will be Spaghetti and Meatballs), Pumpkin Dip with Pears and Grapes
    Tues - All Beef Hot Dogs, Baked Fries, Raspberry Mango Smoothie (I have both leftover fresh raspberry sauce and mango pulp...some yogurt and another fruit will make this pretty good)
    Wed - Grilled Cheese (I have leftover Brie and Aged Cheddar), Homemade French Onion Soup (this was a huge win last month, and I have the stuff to make it again - will have the grilled cheese as dippers instead of doing the whole crock thing b/c family preferred it that way), Carrots and Celery with Dip
    Thurs - ?? Maybe Leftovers from the week - maybe a Baked Chicken Breast with a Homemade Marinade
    Fri - Shopping, so something will come from this...
    Sat - OUT

    I am still trying to clear out the pantry and freezer.
    Black bean and beef tacos, Mexican corn
    Cabbage veggie soup
    Sausage gumbo
    Stroganoff
    Bbq ham pizza
    Soup beans and cornbread
    Some kind of beefy vegetable, maybe barley (if I have it already) soup and home made rolls

    For lunch I am making a bunch of extra dinners. Baked ham with sweet glaze, mashed potatoes, green beans, spaghetti, chili Mac, and shrimp tempura sushi.

    I just need fresh ginger, cabbage, tomato juice, crushed tomatoes, pasta, and tomato paste to complete all these dishes.

    Hi there! Unfortunately, I'm not technically allowed to share the exact recipe since it's a pay to have program I'm on. But it's basically oatmeal with apple slices, protein powder, almond butter and cinnamon ;)

    Hi! Longtime lurker on this thread, but i've never posted in it before. I love coming here to get meal ideas, even though I don't tend to do weekly meal plans. But I thought i'd stop by and post the link to this recipe for one pot lasagna soup. It's a super yummy and easy recipe (i'm making it again tonight) and with these cold winter months upon us, I thought others might enjoy it. http://carlsbadcravings.com/easy-one-pot-lasagna-soup/

    I don't make the recipe exactly to a T, I omit a few things, use turkey instead of beef, and I also prefer to use small pasta shells instead of breaking up the lasagna noodles. But however you make it, I hope you enjoy!

    I made it through the crazy extended weekend of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday at work- aaah! With DS2 being gone at Disney with his GF and her family, and me working the longer hours, it lent itself to DH and I creating our own put together meals and eating up a lot of random leftovers in the fridge, which is a good thing. The rest of this week and next had me also using up some extra things and I only had to make a small grocery trip Tuesday.

    Tue (off): loaded turkey melts with baked beans
    Wed (1-10): Hawaiian pizzas- finally, I'd been holding off making these for like two weeks!
    Thu (2-11): chicken and broccoli Alfredo
    Fri (8-5): crock pot meatballs with mashed potatoes & gravy
    Sat (off): dinner out after church
    Sun (8-5): turkey potato cheese soup with rolls
    Mon (8-5): slow cooked beef roast & veggies
    Tue (off): chicken quesadillas with guacamole
    Wed (off): chimichurri steaks with green beans & garlic break
    Thu (2-11): cheeseburger pizzas
    Fri (2-11):smoked sausage & veggie skillet
    Sat (7-4): diner out after church

    Mmmm Love me some overnight oats! That sounds an awful lot like this recipe (google is my friend.) https://amindfullmom.com/apple-pie-oatmeal/
    this one looks good a well, although it has some different ingredients https://ohsheglows.com/2011/01/24/apple-pie-oatmeal/

    Phew, 2 parties done the last 3 weeks...so, while I've been eating at home, I've been planning last minute...this week is easy b/c I bought a cheap spiral sliced ham, since we don't eat that for Xmas (we do Peking Duck), so ham for this week it is (we have so many activities at night that having the leftovers will be great)...

    Sun - Spaghetti and All Beef Meatballs with Clean-Out-The-Fridge Veg Tomato Sauce (added onion, garlic, green onion, taiwanese spinach, tomatos, carrot, and korean radish), Banana and Blackberries
    Mon - Frozen Pizza (great deal and only feeding 4 and have night activities), Mango and Pomegranate
    Tues - Brown Sugar Glazed Ham, Scalloped Potatoes, Roasted Broccoli
    Wed - Make Your Own Western Scrambled Eggs (Ham, Cheddar, Red Pepper, Onion), Hashbrown Patties, Fruit Smoothies
    Thurs - Ham and Cheese Grilled Cheese, Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup, Sliced Apples
    Fri - Leftover Ham and other leftovers or Frozen Lasagna, 2nd set of Fruit Smoothies
    Sat - Game Night (so we'll go out for fast food) - I have Xmas cookie trays to make for each guest to take home, so I'll bake Friday (thus, no work that day:)...
