Meal Plan 1/1/12-1/7/12

I've been a slacker blogger over the last few weeks.  Besides the craziness of the holidays, I've been feeling pretty out of sorts with this pregnancy.  Don't worry, I'll post an update on that in the next day or so, but the thing to note in the context of our meal plan is that I'm trying to cut out as much acidic food as possible.  Since our dinners in the past consisted a lot of either Mexican or Italian (ie. tomato-based foods), I'm going to be trying some new recipes.  Any recommendations would be very welcome!

Sunday: Sausage, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes--I've never worried much about following the tradition of eating pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day, but it just sounded good to me.
Monday: Honey Lime Enchiladas--this will be my foray into trying to do some Mexican without a red sauce.  We'll see how my body likes it.
Tuesday: Cream Cheese Chicken and Veggie Soup
Wednesday: Creamy Stovetop Mac & Cheese
Thursday: Smoked sausage, cabbage, and potatoes--a comfort meal that reminds me of growing up.  We had this just a few days ago as my first try at a non-acidic meal because I saw cabbage on sale.  It's a great, cheap meal (about $5 for the entire meal and it made about 7 or 8 servings) and, best of all, my body liked it.

The rest of the week will be up in the air.  I'm sure one of those days I'm not going to feel like cooking, so we'll end up eating out, pushing a meal later in the week.

We have been having white pizza. Jiffy pizza dough, pesto, shreaded chicken, and moz cheese slices.

Its pretty cheap, one jar of pesto should make at least five pizzas, have made 3 so far. Hope you feel better!
