Weekly Menu

From about the 5th week of pregnancy to the 10th week I could hardly stand the smell of food, more or less planning our meals and preparing them. So that meant a lot of take-out meals or eating whatever simple food sounded good at the time. Feeling nauseous for several weeks and not knowing what I wanted to eat was definitely a low point of the first trimester. Glad that's all behind me now!

The past couple of weeks I've been getting back into the groove of planning our meals for the week and making one big grocery trip to Publix on Sunday. In an effort to continue with this, I'm going to try and post our weekly dinner menu. I always love reading on other blogs what recipes friends are enjoying, so maybe they will get ideas from here too. Although we are almost half way through the week I thought I'd go ahead and post this weeks menu because we are having some of my favorites!

Sunday: Dinner out-- on the road from Augusta to Tuscaloosa.

Monday: Grilled Salmon Sandwiches (these are a favorite in our home!) and Corn on the Cob

Tuesday: Tomato Pie (recipe below) and a Grilled Chicken Salad

Wednesday: Mexican Lasagna 

Thursday: Leftovers 

Friday: Date Night

Saturday: Tomato-Chicken-Spinach Linguine (recipe below) and a Salad
