Meal Plan of the Week

Hi Guys! I hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend and possibly a three day weekend. The weather here in Massachusetts has been amazing -- so I'm hoping for a Columbus Day hike tomorrow. If you follow my FB pages, you may have known my little guy was super sick last week (no worries, back up to his old monkey-tricks now) --- thankfully I had most of the meals made ahead of time from last week's meal plan. It was a total life-saver as I worked from home and took care of him and only lit a fire under me to make sure I am on top of things this week, as well. Lucky for me, I had a little extra help in the meal planning this week, since the kids decided they would help me out and wrote up this week's meal plan for me:

They erased last week's plan and wrote this in its place. Hilarious! I have to say I wasn't surprised by the pancakes, waffles, tacos, and pizza, but seeing "Calchips" (AKA Kale chips) on there made me smile! We had a break-through this week, and after years of declaring kale chips "gross" Evan finally decided he likes them (woot! score! hi-five!!!!!) Now I just have to hope we get some in our CSA box this week.
I can't say we are following this plan to a T, but in the intereste of compromise I decided to incorporate some of their ideas into our week. (They do keep reminding me that they decided on the meal plan) Ahem, but I reminded them that they are welcome to stick to it if they want to be the ones cooking every night. Deafening silence... yeah, I thought so. No one wants to be in charge of cooking every night !
So here's what I came up with:
Sunday: Maple Roasted Salmon, maple-bacon brussel sprouts (winging this! I hope it comes out yummy!), roasted sweet potato.
Monday: Chinese Chicken on Noodles, sliced oranges
Tuesday: Brinner! I will let the kids choose from pancakes, waffles, French toast, eggs, bacon, sausage and fruit that night... and yes, they will be helping me make dinner! I will have a couple eggs, and some sautéed greens.
Wednesday: Easy Crockpot Chili , this is a no-brainer, I have leftovers in the freezer, might cook up some cornbread to go with it!
Thursday: Dad is in charge! I'm going out with some girlfriends, so he can make tacos or do whatever he feels like.
Friday: Panera - kid's choice and I won't argue, it is right across from Friday night hockey practice.
The past couple weeks I have gotten off track with my fitness and eating and I am feeling it -- so I'm excited to get back in gear and start a whole new program -- p90x3! Between the 21 Day Fix clean eating plan and p90x3 workouts, I'm hoping to have my groove back ASAP! p90x3 is all 30 minute workouts (totally do-able 6 day/week), so I'm hoping to in the best shape possible before the holidays hit. I will be modifying some of my recipes to fit in with the 21 Day Fix program, and share most of these on my instagram (@freshmamablog) -- so check it out! If you have any questions about the 21 Day Fix or any of my fitness programs, leave your email in the comments or pop me an email at !
Have a great week everyone!
