Monday Menu October 5, 2015

I'm going to admit this up front. I think I have gained 4 pounds! (doesn't sound like much but it is!)Even though I was eating what was our menu I have been munching on a lot of unhealthy foods. SO I'm putting myself on a diet, kind of. I hate the word diet, I think of it as starving myself of good food my body needs. So after talking to my wonderful hubby about portion sizes I have come to the conclusion that our family is eating the "American portion" sizes and I feel this needs to stop. I found on Web MD  a great article about this subject. you can read about it here:
One great example is the Bolt House juice I bought. The serving size stated on the bottle 2, however, following the French serving size of 6 oz I have figured out that I will get 3 serving from each bottle.
This a great blog about French Portion Sizes:

So I am going to start cooking smaller portion sizes. The 1st night I did this was Saturday night and it worked out great. Everyone wasn't overly full but was satisfied. We sat at the dinning room table and had a great dinner. I had even made desert for the kids.  I am going to make sure we are eating healthier with our food.

Now last weeks menu fell into this week due to Momma getting sick and not wanting to cook because, well I just couldn't,


Lunch: Leftovers

Dinner: Chicken Fajitas with Cinnamon Dessert Nachos

Momma only had 1 Cinnamon Nacho chip and no ice cream. The Kids LOVED it


Lunch: Leftover chicken fajitas (hubby took to work) I had 1 fried egg and half of a bagel
Dinner: Crock Pot Buffalo Wings

Lunch: Salad for me. Fried Chicken for Hubby
Dinner: Nacho Casserole
This is a Family Favorite I won’t have any leftovers


Lunch: Salad for me. Boneless Buffalo wings for Hubby
Dinner: Chicken, Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

Dinner: Chicken Noodle Soup

Lunch: Soup and Salad for me. Fried Chicken or Leftovers for Hubby
Dinner: Left Over’s
