Meal Plan Monday: 1/6-1/12/14

Wondering how or why to meal plan? Read this first.

It is cold outside! Like freeze your face off cold. Therefore, we are going to be eating soups, spicy and hearty foods this week.

This week you'll notice that I've included a grocery list to go along with the meal plan. Thought I would try something new, so let me know if it's helpful to you.

But first, in honor (or annoyance, however you want to look at it) of it being super cold, I've compiled a list of yummy soups.
Jalapeno Popper White Chicken Chili
Slow Cooker Chicken Quinoa Chili
Savory Bean and Spinach Soup
Panera's Baked Potato Soup
Chicken Noodle Soup
Cauliflower Soup

Here's what we'll be eating this week:

Monday - Sweet and Spicy Stir-fry with broccoli and brown rice

Tuesday - Chicken Tortilla Soup

Wednesday - Terriyaki chicken with pan-fried spinach

Thursday - Taco Salads

Friday - My baby is turning 1 on Friday! We will probably have dinner with family.
