Meal Planning Monday - Week 1

by Michelle in , ,


In order to help me and the husband stay on track and try to get some weight off of us and maybe have better eating habits for when our Sweet P is eating the same foods as us in a few months, I am making it my goal to create a weekly meal plan and post it here on my blog.  Feel free to share any recipes or blog sites with great recipes.  I am a picky eater so you will see lots of meat and potatoes...and corn!
