Meal Plan Monday

I have discovered it is very hard to diet with Eli around. He, like me, loves food. Good food with lots of fat and sugar in it. My first week of the Challenge went so well because he was away at a conference so I was able to eat when and what I wanted. This week with him home has been a bit.....well, a real challenge!

But here I am with my first Meal Plan and I think it's going to be pretty good.

Sunday- Crock-pot Roast, potatoes and carrots
Monday- Pot Pie from my new cookbook (thanks Vicki!) The Pioneer Woman Cooks (Not Low Fat but Very Tasty!)
Tuesday- Turkey Burgers w/Tex Mex Sweet and Red Potatoes, Salad (Low Fat, recipe coming soon!)
Wednesday- Spaghetti Bolognese (Low Fat, recipe coming soon!)
Thursday- Chicken Fingers w/ Honey Mustard Sauce, oven Potatoes (Low Fat, recipe coming soon!)
Friday- Leftovers
Saturday- Stuffed Peppers (Low Fat w/Chicken and brown rice) + some sort of side?

Now, if I can just keep Eli from making another Chocolate Cream Pie.......

You can do it!! You have wonderful low fat cooking! I wish you here cooking for me!! Tell Eli to make the chocolate pie for date night once a month!!

I just eat less (when I think about it; I ate the "normal" amount of tacos tonight and forgot I was going to only eat one...). My husband can sabotage any diet too although he's learning to eat less as he gets older because, as he says regretfully, his stomach's getting smaller. Funny, I'm the same age and haven't noticed that yet. It's what I'm aiming for!! (In a different way, of course.)

Oh, yumm, all sounds so delicious. I'd love some of your recipes. I also love the mean planning. Maybe I'll get myself together enough to plan out our family meals for the week...but I'd love your suggestions!
