Meal Plan Monday in MA

27 07 2008

Another week, another meal plan! Food has not been a friend to my preggo belly lately, but hopefully this week I’ll transition from the queasiness of the 1st trimester into the bliss of the 2nd.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share this nifty brand that I discovered in my local mega-mart: Bilinski’s Gourmet Meats. They’re natural and organic, but don’t taste like the packaging like some natural products I’ve had. I had to stop my dh from eating all the beef franks the last time I bought them so I could have seconds the next day. Bilinski’s is a New York family-owned company, so I’m not sure if their products are available outside the North East. But if you do see them, give them a try!


Monday: Saturday’s Roast Chicken: Part II (I adapted the giant turkey recipe for a tiny chicken) & potatoes

Tuesday: Leftovers that are taking over the fridge

Wednesday: Broccoli & Cheddar Quiche with a Fruit Salad

Thursday: Mac’n’Cheese with Hotdogs and Salad

Friday: Baked (or Grilled) Fish and Creamed Spinach

Saturday: Forage for something in the fridge. There will be leftovers…

Sunday: Breakfast for dinner–Sausage and Waffles

Truely it’s Orangey!

27 07 2008

     I was so excited this week to find my grocery store has started to carry True Lemon products. I had tried a free sample over a month ago and was really impressed. True Lemon is a crystallized lemon substitute in convenient little packets. Just think, when you sprinkle sugar on something, it gets sweeter; but when you sprinkle True Lemon, it gets “lemony-er” without any extra calories! It’s a great pick-me-up for drinking water or a quick & tasty addition to marinades and rubs. The company also makes a lime and orange substitute.
     I had been carrying a coupon for the product around with me for awhile, so when I saw it, I decided to buy a box of True Orange. Back at home, I started to make a fruit salad. Maybe they were just old, but my oranges had no flavor. I diced them anyway and then sprinkled them with a packet of True Orange. When I mixed them in with the rest of the fruit and tasted the salad, my mouth did a little happy dance! It was the best fruit salad I’ve had in a long time; hurray for True Orange!
