This week is a bit chaotic for our little crew because I am up in Los Angeles and back three times for business. But I still did a plan because it was my one attempt at control in the upcoming five days of crazy. Here’s what it looks like:

Sunday lunchSummer corn, bacon and potato chowder from Weight Watchers. I pinned this last week and bought all the ingredients and am only getting around to it now. I am not on Weight Watchers (though I am seriously contemplating hopping back on, I think it’s great) but this looks yum whether you are counting points or not.

Sunday dinnerIna Garten’s steakhouse style steaks (I have been drooling over these since I saw them on a recent episode of the show) and A Cup of Jo’s panzanella salad (pictured above – this was my absolute go-to summer salad last year and since today’s blue skies and time change are hinting at the summer months on the horizon, I am in the mood for it all over again).

Monday lunch – leftover meatloaves from A Smitten Kitchen. I made these the other night and have to say I enjoyed them more than the Ina meatloaf I made a few weeks back. But note to self: this is definitely a weekend recipe.

Monday dinnerGwyneth Paltrow’s chicken milanese. I told you this was a staple around here.

Tuesday lunch – Trader Joe’s chicken curry over jasmine rice

Tuesday dinner – I will be in Los Angeles enjoying dinner with some girlfriends before an early Wednesday morning call time; back home, it will be Taco Tuesday, of course.

Wednesday lunch – Leftover tacos for my man

Wednesday dinner – Homemade burgers and sweet potato fries (I buy the frozen ones at Trader Joe’s and amp them up with this mix of spices).

Thursday lunch – I will be back in Los Angeles so takeout all around

Thursday dinner – I am still in Los Angeles working an event, so frozen pizza for my man (nothing but the best…)

Friday lunch – Still in Los Angeles. Probably contemplating moving back right about now. Frozen orange chicken for my man.

Friday dinner – Finally home. Busy week finally over. I will not be cooking a thing. There will likely be takeout and there will definitely be wine.

Happy Sunday ~

    so many things i want to try here! yum.

    i’ve been making ribs in the crockpot lately… it’s been a rad addition to the weekly menu because i can make as much extra as we want and it rules just as much left over! oh, and it’s easy as hell and everyone loves it.

    sounds like a busy week ahead – so nice to have the menu sorted out! one less thing to juggle.
    have a great one… xx

    sounds like a perfect it’s-almost-spring-isn’t-it-really menu! i had plans for a glorious week o’ food (and smoothies – going on the clean program), but they’ve been derailed by a stomach bug. boo. and yes! to WW! it really is the best – combine that with your TDM? you’ll rock that bikini in no time!
