Menu Plan~ A Month of Soups and Salads, Wk 1

I've decided I am going to make only soups and salads for the first 4 weeks of 2013! I'm excited to try out some new recipes and add them to the mix permanently!

I'm also trying to kick start my healthy eating again in the New Year after 6 weeks of binge eating amazing American Cuisine -eek!  Don't get me wrong, it was worth it. But I'm feeling very ready to get back on track again and lose those last pounds- hopefully before Summer!

*If you have any yummy  and healthy suggestions, please post them for me :)

I have been wanting to make that white chili for a long time. Every time I see it on your blog I want to try it! I'm just being lazy and need to do it!

PS- I still love that corn bread recipe best. Sooooo good!! I did find another one that I like too for when I don't have the ingredients to make yours:

Thanks Danielle! I can't get Jiffy cornbread mix, so I've been looking for another one as well ;) Although, I did smuggle some in from my trip home, so I get the good stuff this week!
