Menu Plan Monday: Week of February 28th

I can’t believe today is the last day of February.  2011 is moving full speed ahead! Less than 3 months until lake season.  I want to wear shorts and tank tops and not feel the way I would feel if I had to put them on right now!  I am looking forward to springing forward in less than 2 weeks (eep! so early this year!) so I can spend more evening time outside and to the Farmer’s Market coming back, which really cannot happen soon enough.  Now that things have settled down from my birthday last week (which was freakin’ fabulous by the way, but that post is for another day!) I can get back to my regularly scheduled life, which is a little sad but also kind of nice — I just don’t have the energy to be that busy all the time.

Monday:  Leftover whole wheat rigatoni w/ meat sauce (homemade yesterday with ingredients that were getting sketchy in my cupboards…); Breakfast for dinner — some type of hash is the plan

Tuesday:  Mrs. V is going to be in town on business so we’re planning to meet for lunch; My virtual book club is going to grab a bite before seeing Yann Martel

Wednesday:  Lemon-Cranberry Tuna Salad (WW recipe I’ve never tried before — let you know how it turns out); Baked fish w/ green veggies

Thursday:  Tuna Salad Sandwich; Leftover pasta

Friday:  Tuna Salad; TBD

Breakfasts:  Cream of Wheat, WW Smoothies

Snacks: Fruit, Veggies and Dip, Yogurt <— I’m in a huge rut. Any suggestions would be welcome!

This plan is slightly vague because I haven’t actually gotten to go to the grocery store yet.  Glad to be back on the wagon so to speak.  What have you made lately that was healthy and fresh? Any recipes I should try?

    I would love to hear how the tuna comes out. . .sounds very interesting! (How many points? and what dressing does it require?)

      The recipe listed it as 7 PointsPlus but that included a french roll. I would guess that without the roll the tuna salad will run 3-4 PointsPlus. The dressing is half fat-free mayo and half fat-free sour cream.

  2. One of my favorite healthy snacks is fresh fruit with low fat Cool Whip. It doesn’t even matter what kind of fruit you use- strawberries, grapes, blueberries, bananas, pineapple, whatever. It’s easy, cheap, and healthy- my favorite combination. 😉

    Hope you have a great week!
