Meal Planning week of 4/15/13

I have been better about making meal plans over the weekend, both for dinners (usually which my son, Kent, starts before I get home so we can eat at a decent hour!) and for myself, for breakfasts and lunches I can pack and take to work. I love to eat out, and would probably do it every day (especially with multiple cafeterias and restaurants to choose from within a few minutes walking distance from my office!) but am trying to be good and make sure to eat a balanced diet that is healthy for me and this little growing peanut - not to mention much more cost effective for our family!
