Thanks again to Laura and Jill for hosting the Meal Plan Challenge!
The plan for this week is simplicity. I plan to keep working until the baby comes, because who wants to sit home WAITING for a baby to come, but this means I am TIRED at the end of the day! I'm hoping for quick, easy meals most nights, with a bit more additional prep thrown in for Tuesday and Thursday as those are the days that Hubs picks up the boy.
Sunday: BBQ at Noni's house - veggie burgers :-)
Monday: Pasta with Quorn Meatballs and Red Sauce
Tuesday: Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas
Thursday: Crockpot Minestrone Soup
Saturday: Mac n Cheese with Broccoli
Enchiladas are a bit more involved than I might normally plan for this week, but I have a craving so it's happening. I am also planning on making a mexi-rice casserole on that day for the freezer. Same type filling ingredients just with rice and greek yogurt instead of wrapped in tortillas.
Last week I made stir-fry for the first time in a long time and wow! I completely forgot how EASY it is to make! I will be adding it to the regular rotation for sure! Unfortunately, I brought some of it to work and it spilled inside my bag on the way in, which was sad and messy. Apparently I need a better method of transport!
I'm also excited that I have officially made it past 37 weeks of pregnancy, and can deliver at my place of choice. Hooray for being full term! I'm looking forward to adding some stretching and walking back into the rotation now that my hips are feeling better and I'm confident that the baby can safely come anytime it wants.
Speaking of the baby, I have been dying to get a photo of myself with the belly and Ben, but being the family cameraman (woman?) I rarely am photographed unless I am able to take them myself. It is surprisingly difficult to photograph your own pregnant belly with a cell phone! This is the best I have been able to come up with.
I'm really going to miss how his foot rests on top of the belly like that! Although I probably won't miss holding him up so high along with the extra 34 lbs I'm lugging around!
