Meal Plan Mondays

So I guess that's what I am calling it these days. When Sunday rolls around I just don't have the gusto to plan our meals out AND make it to the grocery store. It's always way too crowded and they are always out of stuff so I wait until Monday. Ryan and I usually do something fun in the morning and then after nap time we head to Central Market to get food for the week. Ryan digs the carts with the cars on top and he also is a BIG fan of the balloons so it works out well. Plus CM always has a ton of yummy fruit and bread for him to snack on. Anyhow, here is what we are working with this week:

Monday: Chili-lime Tilpaia, Herbed Basamati Rice and Fresh Spinach.

Kevin and I were both pretty big fans - it was just what we needed after a weekend of not so healthy food. Kevin rated this guy a solid four starts.
