Menu Plan Monday 10/26-11/1

Well, I feel pretty good about last week (as far as WW goes), even though I only cooked one night the whole week! This week is only a little better as far as schedule goes, but that is life and I am going to have to learn to make healthy choices regardless of my busy life. Time to suck it up! Ha! I spent all day in the kitchen today, but I'll post more on that later. Here is the plan!

  • Lunch: sandwiches, veggies, fruit, leftovers
  • Dinner:
Monday- Teriyaki Chicken Stir-Fry
Tuesday- Leftovers (Mr.Pate is working and I have dgroup so we are
fending for ourselves)
Wednesday- Dinner at Dustin's
Thursday- Dinner at a church members house
(rescheduled for last week)
Friday- Baked Rigatoni
Saturday- Turkey Dogs (at Trunk or Treat! at church)
Sunday- Zero Point Soup
