Yay, we made it to our second week of Menu Plan Monday with OrgJunkie.com!  This week, instead of copying a meal plan off of someone else, I actually checked out my fridge and came up with a plan of my own.  Go me!!

Net carb counts per serving are in ( ), and the meals don’t correspond to any certain day of the week since I like to change my mind often.  I’ll plan 5 meals for the week since one day will be left overs, and Sunday’s we try to do tacos or something fun with friends.  I’ll add those recipes at a later date.

It’s been quite a long hiatus, especially since Devyn and I only have a few posts on this blog to begin with.  I kind of freaked out today when I realized that I hadn’t been to the grocery store since before Christmas, and I was hungry.

I decided to be a cheater.  Not a bad cheater, just a busy one.  You see, usually when I plan a weeks worth of menus I’ll pull recipes from all over the internet or from my own arsenal.  Not today, because today I got lucky.  I remembered back before I started my own business that I used to frequent really awesome blogs with stuff I used to actually do.  I’m An Organizing Junkie is one of those awesome sites, with an even more awesome feature called Menu Plan Monday.  I’ve wanted to contribute hundreds of times, but I think I only did it twice.

Anyhow, when I logged on to her site this morning before I hit the grocery store, I expected to find a few great ideas.  I didn’t realize I’d practically adopt the entire menu.

So, thanks to Laura at OrgJunkie.com we will be heating well this week!  I didn’t choose specific days for each meal as I prefer to go with what I’m in the mood for that day, or what’s ready to expire in my fridge.  Here is her original post.  Carb counts will be added as I post them each evening.
