Meal Plan Monday

I have been meal planning for a long time, but came across OrgJunkie's Meal Plan Monday on another food blog that I read: Two Novice Chefs, One Tiny Kitchen.

In order to eat healthy, food planning can be your best friend. Not only can you depend on your menu to help count calories, but it also saves you from eating out or grabbing something to go because you don't know what to fix for dinner. Plus, I find that I use fresh food items more efficiently over several meals if need be. So, without further ado, my first Meal Plan Monday!!

Monday: On Your Own/Leftover Night (Class)

Tuesday: Lemon Chicken Soup with Orzo

Wednesday: Beef, Bean and Cornbread Casserole

Thursday: Rigatoni with Broccoli & Canadian Bacon

Friday: Layered Enchilada Bake with Rice and Beans

Saturday: Cornmeal Crusted Catfish with Mushroom-Curry Bulgar

Sunday: Lunch at church and leftovers!

Check out what's on other bloggers' menus and OrgJunkie's menu here!
