Hey everyone! I hope you have been checking out our blog the past few weeks, there have been some yummy recipes posted by Alisha and Katie. The meal plan this week isn't as creative as I tend to like things, but after the holidays- I scaled back a little on the amount of time spent cooking in the kitchen and stuck to things I can whip up quick.

Monday- Chicken, Tomatoes & Rice w/ Steamed Broccoli
Tuesday- Cheese and Ham Melts
Wednesday- Taco Bar w/ Rotel Cheese dip
Thursday- Tater Tot Casserole w/ green beans
Friday- Fettucini Alfredo w/ garlic bread and tossed salad
Saturday- Out to eat or Pizza Night
Sunday- Chicken Quesadillas
