Menu Plan Monday


We will be going out of town for Christmas this year and seeing family we haven't seen in a while.  I just dug out my 'nice clothes' today to see if any fit, they are all pre-baby and some even pre-secretary-sit-on-my-butt-for-8-hours-a-day jobs.  I was really happy to discover that I fit in just about everything.  There are a few pairs of pants I need a little 'help' fitting into, to actually look good, so, we will be eating very, very healthy for the next month.  Oh, and my husband wants to drop a couple of pounds as well, so he will be nothing but encouragement for me!

I love that you post your menu plan! I make a menu plan but I don't post it. I am glad you have a good recipe for WW bread, I have been looking for one. Is the pizza crust one you have tried before? Just wondering how you like it.

I have a bunch of Potatoes in my pantry. That Irish Cream Of Potato Soup and your recipe for Tofu Sour Cream sound delicious! I'll have to try them. Maybe I'll put a dollop of the sour cream on top of the soup ;)TFS

Yes, I cannot live without my menu plan either. I enjoy posting it and I think it helps me stay 'honest' and not get takeout or something easy instead!

I have not tried the pizza crust recipe before. Generally I make white pizza crust but need to do more whole wheat. I will let you know.

I will try the sour cream in my leftover potato soup for lunch tomorrow. Why didnt I think of that?
