MPM + review of last week's menu

So it's a busy time right now with trying to make some changes to the first draft of my thesis. I handed it to my reader a bit ago and he gave it back with some needed change, but not a ton - which is SUCH a blessing.  So i'm trying to polish it up right now to get to the technical reader by Wednesday, then all that's left is a 2nd draft and a  presentation via Skype-woohoo!

All that to say, my menu is pretty simple, not very many pics and not all the calorie counts I normally have. Hopefully I'll be back on track with that next week.


Hope you all have a great week and some good cookin' planned :)


Monday - Cobb Salad: Romain lettuce topped with grilled chicken, bacon, hard boiled eggs, and cheddar cheese - yum!
Tuesday - Baked Chicken 
Wednesday - Chicken Noodle Soup
Thursday - Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole, (410 calories a serving)

Friday - Meatball Subs

Quick review of last week's new recipes: 

Lemon Dill Salmon - Tim and I both rated it a 9/10 -yum! -WILL do again :)
Lemon Dill Vinaigrette - 5/10 - too sour - Will NOT do again :(
Cheddar Bay Biscuites - 7/10 - tasty, but so greasy and not that amazing(to us) to be worth all the calories - Probably Will NOT do again :(
Sesame Chicken - 5/10 - Just bland and blah - not worth the effort - Will NOT do again :(
Chicken Caesar Salad - amazing! We both rated it a 9/10. I think the homemade dressing and homemade croutons made it so yum! WILL do again :)

Have you already finished writing your thesis paper? I think it would be a good idea to have a break, like cooking to relieved some stress came from formulation thesis topics ideas and revising the draft again. Anyway, I do hope everything went well with your paper.
