Menu Plan Monday – April 27th

Menu Plan Monday

So, this first trimester thing is really kicking my tail.  I just don’t like thinking about food and just want to eat a bowl of cereal at every meal.  But, I am managing to get some fruits and veggies in too.  What is it about pregnancy hormones that make you want to eat only carbs and chocolate??? 

Here is what I will ATTEMPT to make this week.  Perhaps with a little extra help from Hubs in the kitchen!

Monday – BBQ Chicken and Cornbread Casserole (Recipe from A Year of Crockpotting!)

Tuesday – Pork and Sweet Potato Stew (I did not end up making this this week!)

Wednesday – Tex Mex Chicken and Rice (Recipe from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures)

Thursday – Black Bean Soup with Corn

Friday – Out to Eat with Aunts and Uncles!

Saturday – Wedding Reception for Friends!

Sunday – Grilled Pork Chops

I will post the recipes each night after I make the meal. If you see a meal you are interested in, please check back for the recipe later in the week!  I’ll also be posting my MAY MENU PLAN later in the week!

Thanks to Andrea at Mommy Snacks and Marcy at Stretching a Buck for posting the best deals and coupon matchups at my stores each week!

    All I want is cereal too but I am already 37 weeks!! I have been too ashamed to admit it! I always do nice menu plans and then my husband has a real dinner and I have Raisin Bran. Thank heavens we have a massive stockpile of free and cheap cereal :)

    Congrats!! I had a horrible addiction to Krystal’s with my last baby. Now I get morning sickness just thinking about a Krystal! (and I’m not even pregnant…lol)

    Carbs and chocolate… probably why I gain so much during pregnancy. lol. Even if you don’t make the meals, don’t beat yourself up. If the Lord does bless us with another baby someday, I think I’ll do freezer meals for the 1st trimester!

    My fav during pregnancy was Total cereal. It gave me all the Iron I needed towards the end. I drank a gallon of milk and ate a box of cereal every week. I convinced myself that it was fine-who couldn’t use extra vitamins?

    Where do you post the recipes? I tried looking back to the menu plan for last week but didin’t see the recipes. Am I looking in the right place?
    Thanks in advance!

    Do you have a monthly calendar print out that you can post? I was hoping for a monthly calendar that you have these on them already and I can just print out the calendar and then have the receipes behind it print with the calendar?

    I was also looking for the recipes from last week. The lasagna soup sounded very intriguing. Are they posted somewhere I am missing?

      I don’t always follow the plan to a T! Especially these days when I feel so queasy! You can find recipes in the Recipe Index (tab at the top of the site.)
