I've been finding new recipes that I want to try, but I don't often have the time!  My Master's program is quite demanding this semester.  So, don't be surprised if you see a recipe posted twice (one week after another), it just means I didn't have time to make it and still want to.  But I will say that making a menu on Sunday for the upcoming weeks really helps me to be organized enough to cook, even if I do occasionally have to change a meal.

My menu for this week:
Monday Breakfast:  Paleo Sausage Egg McMuffin (I really want to try these for breakfast, and no, I'm not going Paleo, just trying to shed the four pounds I put on since Christmas and low carb seems to do the trick for me :)
Monday Dinner:  Crab Cakes (and halibut cakes--with the leftover halibut from last week's fish tacos), with Parmesan Roasted Green Beans, Artisan bread and Honey Lime Fruit
Tuesday:  Creamy Coconut Milk Meatballs over Egg Noodles (or Zucchini Noodles for me) with Asian Salad with Ginger Dressing and Egg Rolls
Wednesday:  Cheddar Ranch BLT Sausage Sandwiches with Chips and Relish Tray
Thursday:  Chicken Cacciatore over Leftover Noodles with Green Salad
Friday:  Mom's Night Off :)
Saturday: Waffles and Eggs
Sunday:  Roast, Potatoes, and Carrots with Sweet Dinner Rolls and Green Salad
