Healthy Meal Plan Friday: School's Back in Session

As I type, G is at his first day of Kindergarten.  I wanted to drive him, but he would hear nothing of it:  he was riding the bus.  In a couple hours I'll meet him and R at the bus stop, a surreal moment, the realization that I am no longer a mother of a preschooler, I am a full-fledged elementary school mom.

With school back in session I am kicking off Meal Plan Friday.  I used to share our meals for the week on Monday during the school year, but many of you told me you plan for the next week during the weekend, so I'll start posting meal plan ideas each Friday.

I'll include a weekly Meatless Monday, as well as one or two other extras, like a lunch idea you can make early in the week and eat during the week, or a special snack creation.  I'll also try and mix it up with some vegan, vegetarian and traditional dishes.

Let me know what you think!

Meal Plan:

Our Dinners:
Caramelized Onion Calzones, Fresh Mango, Steamed Broccoli

Sweet Potato Enchiladas, Brown Rice with Lime and Cilantro, Fresh Pineapple
Citrus Glazed Chicken, Couscous, Cucumbers, Summer Marinated, Red Grapes

Macaroni and Cheese (with Broccoli, Cauliflower and Bacon), Kiwi Slices
Pizza Soup, Tossed Salad, Raspberries
Thai Vegetarian Wrap, Sweet Potato Fries, Peaches

After-School Snack Special:
Apple Nachos

Lunch Special:
Quinoa and Curried Chickpea Salad

Happy Friday All!

Life is sweet,

Love this idea! And I still want to try the caramelized onion calzones... maybe I can trick Liam into eating onions? :)

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
