Menu Monday

Breath in, breath out, breath in, breath out....

I have to keep telling myself to breath slowly these days.  I have been swamped at the office and haven't had time to do much but work & stress about work.  It's not healthy, but I think the workload will decrease soon!

I have some easy meals planned for dinner this week so that I can still eat well and have time to work and workout!  By the way, November Workouts are found HERE!

Meal 1 - Warmed Spinach Salad with Shrimp
This meal is quick and tasty!  Warm up some shrimp with a 1/2 T butter and some creole seasoning in a pan on medium heat in a large pan.  In a small pan,  toast up 1/8th of a cup or so of almonds.  In the shrimp pan, add 1/2 a container of chopped roasted red peppers.  Once those were warmed, add in 4 heaping handfuls of spinach, your toasted almonds, and about 1/4 a cup of freshly shredded Parmesan.  Cook until wilted and top w/ your toasted almonds!

Meal 2 - Beef Stir Fry
All you need is the meat of your choice (we chose beef), frozen veggies, and your favorite sauce!  Cook the meat on a stove top over medium heat, add 2 cups of frozen veggies per every 4 ounces of meat, and then coat with your desired amount of sauce!  We normally mix some teriyaki, sriracha, and soy sauce.

Meal 3 - White Chicken Chili
We follow this Bush's White Chicken Chili recipe.  We add salsa to flavor while we cook and then since I am not supposed to eat tomatoes, I normally add some sour cream to mine so my throat doesn't hurt ad badly!

Meal 4 - Chicken Divan
This recipe is courtesy of Neal's mother (we cut it in 1/2 so we don't have a ton of leftovers)
1 10oz package of frozen broccoli
2 chicken breasts cut in to bite sized pieces
1/2 cup toasted bread crumbs (or crackers)
1/2 T butter
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheese
Use the butter to spread a layer on an 8x8 baking pan.  Layer the broccoli & chicken.  Pour the sauce over this and top with the bread crumbs.  Bake for 25-30 min at 350 degrees.
