Menu Plan Monday

Sorry I missed last week's menu plan! I've been quite preoccupied while I work to eliminate, or at least reduce, high fructose corn syrup from my children's diet. I'm also still trying to come up with a good, workable plan for continuing a low-carb diet for my dh and I (we're doing quite well, I've lost 20lbs and dh has lost almost 35lbs! Woo-hoo!), while cooking nutritious meals that the boys will actually eat - and not cook two meals each night. Look for more details on both of these issues in the next month or so! Here is what our menu plan looks like this week...

Monday: Dh unexpectedly worked from home today, and it's a beautiful day. We're going to do a bit of yard work, then dh surpised me by saying we could go out to dinner tonight. Horray, what a treat!

Tuesday: Creamy chicken over rice (kids) or cauiflower (mom&dad), side salad

Wednesday: Happy Valentine's Day! Steak, mini lobster tails (on sale for Vday!), salad, low-carb chocolate cupcakes

Thursday: BBQ Chicken, coleslaw, french fries for the kids

Friday: Shrimp Scampi, rice for the kids, salad

Saturday: Pizza for the kids, chicken wings and vegies&dip for A2, mom and dad

Sunday: Roast beef, potatoes for the kids, "Just like Stuffed Baked Potatoes"
