Menu Plan: February 27- March 5

*For those of you who may be new: We eat mostly organic, whole foods. Meats are free range, antibiotic free. I still use regular dairy at this time due to cost. 'We' meaning myself and my toddler son. My husband still has to have his white pasta, white bread and soda*

Seriously lacking motivation to menu plan here! I blame it on the pregnancy ;-) Nothing sounds good to eat! Still, I need to do it and so here it goes...

I'm also starting to make a list of super easy meals that are easy to prepare after baby arrives. Husband doesn't eat ANY casseroles or leftovers. Basically I have to cook each meal fresh. He doesn't know how to cook, BUT he can grill meat decently (I don't even know how lol). So I'm making a list of meals that are either grilled (like chicken fajitas and hamburgers) or something I can throw into the oven frozen (like my BBQ baked chicken) and add beans to the crockpot and steam frozen veggies in the microwave and call it good. It's a limited amount of meals, but it will get us by at least those first couple of weeks.

Sunday: Hamburgers

Monday: BBQ baked chicken, baked potatoes, pinto beans and steamed broccoli. 
Tuesday: Chicken fajitas and black beans

Wednesday: Whole Wheat spaghetti with meat sauce, corn and salad

Thursday: Beef burritos with beans. 

Friday: Italian Baked Chicken, brown rice, salad and steamed brussel sprouts.

Saturday: Tuna Patties, Macaroni and Cheese*, navy beans, and corn.

Breakfasts: cereal and apple crisp

Snacks: fruit. Going to make some snacks too but I'm so focused on getting more things done on my 'to do list' to prepare for baby.......more nesting!

Ugh! Sorry your hubby doesn't eat leftovers. :( We have one day a week that we do leftovers and sometimes eat them at lunch.

I know how you feel! We're due mid April and I just checked out a whole bunch of freezer-type cooking books from the library. My goal is to have 2 weeks of meals that my husband can prepare without worry, even if they have to be defrosted overnight before throwing in the oven. Best wishes!
