Menu Plan Monday October 13th

Well! It is that time of the week to menu plan good, hearty, wholesome meals to feed our family.
I'm going on "You on a Diet" again, (been away and not practiced it for two weeks) and just love the meals because they are not only quick- but very delish!
OrgJunkie.com is hosting these Mondays and if you go to their website- you will find 300 other people who are menu planning too! It is a blast to sit down and see what others are planning for the week. Maybe it will inspire you, help you remember a forgotten recipe, pique your interest to try something new....go check them out!

Monday: Chicken Kabobs with fruit salad, corn and a crisp salad (version altered from p. 294)

Tuesday: Royal Pasta Primavera Provencale with Rock Asparagus, and yellow squash p. 290, and 301 respectively

Wednesday: Apricot Chicken with Green Beans and Almond Slivers, crescent rolls, and salad wedges p. 291

Thursday: Asian Salmon with Brown Rice Pilaf (substitute pilaf for Rice-a-Roni), crisp salad and bread p. 285

Friday: Turkey Tortilla Wraps and Red Baked Potatoes (with the works) p. 292

I have had all of these already- all very yummy and nutritious- as well as FAST!

Buy the book! It will save you time and give you great ideas for eating healthy!
Amazon has used copies for .99 cents! Can't beat that price! I got mine at Costco for around $12.00, hardback.

PS- anything in red is NIR= Not In Recipe I've added it because my family wants it :)

Do you realize that the BLUE COLOR of the book would qualify for a BLUE MONDAY post? I know you're probably at work, so sigh... I guess you can't link in. Ah well, maybe another time.

BTW: you know what the first three letter of the word "diet" spell, don't cha?

In theory meal planning sounds good, and then I get all sweaty thinking about preparing far enough in advance to actually have the right groceries ready.
