Menu Plan Monday - Trying to Watch our "Points"

This past week was again hit and miss. While we made several of the dishes planned, they were prepared out of order. We skipped some because of more leftovers than planned. Then we added a meal on Saturday since Mr. Gooch decided he wanted to make steaks on the grill for his birthday. With our having 60 degrees in February temps, I can't blame him.

So we moved the Southwestern Salmon from last week to this. We have been trying very hard to embrace eating healthy and so are trying to incorporate more recipes from Weight Watchers and Cooking Light.

Sunday: Leftovers from the birthday dinner (otherwise known as Forage in the Fridge or FITF)
Monday: Weight Watchers Southwestern Salmon (Fresh salmon marinated in a zesty mix of cilantro, lime juice, cumin, and hot pepper sauce, then baked on top of fresh yellow and red bell peppers) - 6 points a serving
Tuesday: Roasted Chicken with Saffron and Honey (I think this will be about 6 points per serving).
Wednesday: FITF
Thursday: Balsamic Rosemary Grilled Pork Chops - 6 points a serving
Friday: Out for dinner at Marion Street Cheese Market's Cafe to celebrate Valentine's Day. Check out the tasty menu. I can't wait to try the Ginger Carrot Bisque.
Saturday: FITF

Served at each meal will be a salad and veggie. We are trying to cut down on the carbs/starches so we will only have rice, potatoes or pasta a couple times a week from now on.

Breakfast will be either high fiber cereal, homemade granola with LF yogurt or LF cottage cheese with peaches. I may try to make some high fiber fruit muffins as well.

For lunch, DH has his usual items he brings with him to work. I will be having leftovers, an apple (or other fruit) with carrots (or other veggie) with LF chicken salad or another low-cal/high fiber recipe yet to be found.

Make sure to visit to see what others have planned for this week.
