Back In the Kitchen Again

I promised myself I wouldn’t turn the blog into a full on “mommy blog” once Sophia was born. Not that there’s anything wrong with mommy blogs, some of my favorite blogs are in fact mommy blogs but I started this blog well before I was pregnant and I still have other interests and an identity beyond Sophia.

Towards the end of my pregnancy I started getting super lazy tired and cooking fell by the wayside because I couldn’t stand for more than ten minutes without needing a nap. Now that Sophia and I are getting a rhythm, dare I say a schedule, for the week I’m going to venture back into the kitchen and start cooking meals again. I’m also aiming to eat a bit healthier because I’m nursing Sophia and hoping to get into better shape (I certainly wasn’t in my top form before I got pregnant) but that’s another post for another time.

I spent the better part of an hour and a half yesterday looking for recipes to make my meal plan for the upcoming week. Below is what I came up with; I’ve linked to the blog or recipe that was inspiration but I’m sure I’ll have my own twist on each dish. I’ll be sure to post my actual recipes at the end of the week.

Monday: Buttermilk Grilled Chicken with Pasta Salad and Mixed Veggies

Tuesday: Smothered Pork Chops with Sautéed Apples

Wednesday: Chicken Taco Salad with Warm Tortillas

Thursday: Grilled Eggplant and Hummus Sandwiches

Friday: Mediterranean Pizza

Saturday: Mustard Cream Chicken with Rice and Mixed Veggies

What’s on your menu for the week?
