Weekly Meal Plan: 4/29 - 5/5

One of the major changes that needs to happen in my life is organizing they way I spend money and calories on food.  I'm so busy all of the time, that it's really critical that I organize my meals and limit eating out.  So much of my money is spent on groceries, that is then wasted because I end up eating fast food because I'm too busy or tired to cook when I get home.  Here's hoping that starting a personal blog keeps me organized and on point.  This is as much about losing weight as it is about saving money!

This week's menu plan is looking really good...I'm already stoked about having leftovers of all this yumminess for lunch and after our game on Wednesday.  I'm the most excited to attempt the Posole tonight.  I found the recipe at AllRecipies and it had great reviews.
