Menu Plan Monday~ March 19, 2012

It's been a bit of a "sick week" for the Baylors. In the beginning of the week, Rose spiked an almost 104 temp and was sick to her stomach with a nasty nose. Poor girl. She just laid there staring for a couple of days! The immediate care nurse relieved my concern by checking her out late one night. The fever broke and in about 3 days or so she was back to normal. Then of course slowly each of us caught the bug. But fortunately for Maddy, Tim and I it was only a nasty head cold type of flu. I think we are all on the upswing now. I am never as thankful for health as after we have all been sick!

On a positive note, we are getting more and more light back each day! It's been so refreshing and uplifting to our spirits! The sun is coming up now at about 6am and going down around 6pm - woohoo -10 hours of sunlight! But before we know it, there will be more light than dark. So I need to get moving on finding some black out blinds for the girls so they will still sleep :) But I'm not complaining!

I was able to use plenty of leftovers last week and we were also invited over for a few meals, so I have 2 repeats this week.  Hope you have a great week of cooking in your house!

Monday~ Broiled Parmesan Haddock (402 calories a fillet), crispy broccoli
The recipe uses Tilapia, but it's easier to find Haddock here. So use whatever sturdy white fish you can find :)

Tuesday~ Pat's Famous Beef and Pork Chili (469 calories per 1 cup), cornbread

Wednesday~ Beef Tacos, guacamole(105 calories per serving), chips
We cannot seem to get off this guacamole train - so yummy!
Thursday~ Coconut Chicken (419 calories per 4 strips), parmesan green beans (green beans cooked in olive oil and salt and pepper in a skillet for about 10 min, then sprinkled with Parmesan.

Friday~ Spaghetti and Meatballs(303 calories for 1/4 of the meatballs in recipe, then add calories for whatever pasta you use), Salad
