Meal Plan Monday 8/15/16



Happy Monday! 

Today's the first day in over a week I've been able to shut off the air conditioner and open up some windows.  (Let that the fresh air in)   Here in Connecticut we've had some of the most oppressive heat I've seen in a long time.  So needless to say this weekend was spent mostly indoors where it was cool.   Except yesterday I did go out on my deck for a couple hours, until I accidentally dropped my phone in the pool!  (I know...GASP!)   Long story, short.. I got lucky.   I jumped in after it as if was one of my own children.   I immediately screamed for husband, who Thank God can take apart an iPhone and dried it out for me. FYI the iPhone 6 Plus is somewhat waterproof.  Apparently it can handle a quick dip in the water, but I don't recommend it.  

Anyhow,  I was able to actually sit down and come up with a meal plan for the week.   I'm a little rusty at this, but here's my attempt.   
Every week I want to try a new recipe from Pinterest.  This week I came across a spinach grilled cheese sandwich.   I know a grilled cheese sandwich isn't much of a "recipe" but hey, at least I'm trying.      I won't be adding any fancy cheese, just normal mixture of American, Sharp Cheddar and maybe some Mozzarella.    

The only other recipe on my list that I think is worth you giving a try is the Hasselback Chicken Caprese.   It's beyond yummy, easy and not too crazy fattening (depending how much cheese you use).   I think everything else on this menu is self explanatory.    

Since I am on Weight Watchers  I do adapt my meals to lower the SmartPoint values where ever I can.   For example, I'll use 1sp bread for the sandwiches, low carb 2sp tortillas and extra lean beef for the tacos, and meatballs..etc.   You get my drift, right?      

Have a great week!
