  • I suck at meal planning but here's what I have...

    Monday: Turkey Tacos

    Tuesday: Butternut Squash and fresh spinach risotto

    Wednesday: Salmon patties and sweet potato fries or leftover risotto

    Thursday: Chicken, probably lemon pepper, with salad

    That's all I've got.  I'm guessing the risotto recipe will easily last 2 days so the chicken will be pushed to Friday.

    Yesterday:  Salmon, mac & cheese, peas

    Today: Chicken w/ green chilis (I made the recipe up), quinoa, green beans
