Menu Plan Monday (a little late)

holidaympm-1.jpg's back to normal life again.  Holidays are almost over and school will be starting next week so we need to get back into a routine this week.  We had a great Christmas and enjoyed our family and friends in Tualatin.  Ayden was of course spoiled by his loved ones in Tualatin. He got so many presents.  But that is okay because it was his 1st Christmas and he needed some new toys.  Thank you everyone for all the gifts.  We love ALL of them!  

One of my new year goals is to lose at least 15 pounds for the wedding and to get into better eating habits.  So we are going to start making some healthier dinners.  I love the website and I will be using a lot of recipes from there.  I will also just modify a lot of recipes with less butter, oil, etc.  I hope you enjoy this week's menu.  Have a fun and safe New Years!  If you are interested in more weekly menus go to 

Monday- Shrimp stir fry

Tuesday-  Potato, leek, and broccoli soup with some yummy warm bread

Wednesday-We are having a little New Years Eve fiesta at our house with a few friends.
Appetizers- Taquitos, Chips and Salsa and Queso

“I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which, uh … is odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And, uh … and watch TV. And get a bone density test. And, uh ... try to figure out what my phone number spells in words.” – Ellen DeGeneres
