Weekly Menu 12/29/13 - 1/2/14

So, uh it's Sunday.

And on Sunday's I'm supposed to share the meal plan with you for the week. Preferably in the morning. Except I completely forgot today was Sunday. These holidays in the middle of the week are really messing with my brain. I haven't known what day it is for like the past week.

I probably should also talk about New Years Eve and those dreaded resolutions. We can start with NYE. We're staying in (as usual) but not having a party. I honestly was too preoccupied with other things to remember to invite people in an adequate amount of time. If it turns out any of my friends end up without plans, then I'll definitely ask them to stop by, but otherwise I think it's just going to be a quiet night in. I am making a variety of appetizers for dinner though, which should be fun.

As for the resolutions, as cliche as it is, I absolutely have to lose weight this year. It's been over a year since I started that horrible birth control pill that made me gain weight and more than 6 months since I've stopped it. I have absolutely no excuse for not losing weight. Well, there is the small issue that my metabolism and I don't get along. As in, it fell over and died. But I'm determined to revive it somehow and actually fit into my old clothes. Mainly because I am too damn cheap to buy any more in my current size. And because I am completely uncomfortable with how I look in the mirror and pictures.

Actually making recipes from my recipe binder is another resolution I'd like to stick to. Along with keeping my file drawer and closet better organized, since I've reorganized and cleaned both out way too many times in the past few months.

One of the cookbooks I received was for make-ahead and freezer meals and I'd like to get back into that as well since there are a decent amount of healthy recipes in there.

And onto the menu

Sunday - shrimp scampi

Monday - chicken fried rice 

Tuesday - appetizers (see below)

Wednesday - crock pot pork and sauerkraut, mashed potatoes

Thursday - jalapeno popper pizza

Friday - leftovers 

The appetizers I have planned for New Years Eve are steak and blue cheese bites, blue cheese bread, bell pepper bites, buffalo chicken cups, brown sugar meatballs and veggies and dip.
