Manic Meal Planning

So I am finally back to somewhat of myself, as much of oneself as you can get while pregnant. Which means trying to get us all back on track with healthy living. We need to retire the almost daily fast food and takeout asap. It is just not good for us and makes me oh so guilty.
And the best way I have found for us to stay on track and not have the 4pm meltdown of "ugh what's for dinner" is to meal plan.
I have noticed a lot of other bloggers listing out their weekly menus and I have to say I love it. It is so easy to get into a rut of eating the same foods all the time and I like variety and so does my husband.

This week's menu is as follows
Monday- Tacos and Homemade Salsa
Tuesday- Roasted Turkey Breast, Red Potatoes, & Green Beans
Wednesday- Vodka Pasta with Chicken
Thursday- Pork Chops with Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Onions
Friday- Homemade Chicken Pesto Pizza

I was able to rock it at the grocery and stock us with everything and tons of fruit, snacks and breakfast goods for 88 bucks. I was way impressed with my shopping and couponing this week. Our healthy living has really upped our grocery bill but its important to me so its worth it. What are y'all making this week? Anything good that I want to try for next week?
