Menu Plan Monday~ 2/4/13 (Giveaway!)

It's February?!?! How did that happen?? The end of the year flew by so fast in a wave of holidays and sick kids (and parents!) I feel like I missed December and January! But everyone is FINALLY healthy and we're starting to get into a routine now that I've been back to work for almost 2 months.

I really miss cooking. Menu planning/grocery shopping actually kind of bums me out because I know I won't be home for 5 out of the 7 dinners (I work the evening shift...). Plus I try to make the 3 meals that my babysitter needs to make pretty simple and something I know the kids will eat. That gets pretty repetitive! But I just can't NOT menu plan. Even though I don't always post it, I can't remember the last time I didn't make a menu for the week.

Through into the mix that I'm back on track with Weight Watchers and it makes for a longer grocery list. I tend to focus on my lunches since I usually take a frozen meal in to work for dinner. I found a pretty tasty option to throw into the mix (hence the giveaway after my menu)!

Sunday 2/3- Turkey Club/BLTs, Chips/Veggies/Dip

Monday 2/4- Chicken Ranch Pasta

Head over to OrgJunkie for more menus!

And onto the giveaway!

I was really excited to try the ProgressOh! Light soups. Soup is quick and pretty mess-free which is super helpful for this mom of 4! Plus my husband has been using this awesome personal size travel Crockpot at work and soups fit perfectly. We received two type to try:

I tried the Chicken Pot Pie and it was actually pretty good and filling. The fact that it said Chicken Pot Pie made me crave the buttery crust though. It's so low in Weight Watchers points that I could definitely have a biscuit or something to feed that craving. :) A lot of cream style soups are watery but this one was pretty thick. I would buy it to have again!

My husband has the Creamy Potato at work today. It's not lunch time yet but I'm pretty sure he'll be happy. How can you not like something with bacon and cheese in it? Personally I would probably add extra cheese because I LOVE cheese. :)

our favorite quick meal is pasta with diced tomatoes and sauce. Add a salad and garlic bread and you are done.
