Happy New Year, I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday!  For me, it was really difficult to get up at 6:30 this morning. We went out of town this weekend to celebrate the New Year and my daughters birthday and I am still worn out, even after going to bed at 8pm…

One of the things I got for Christmas is a Costco Membership.  I am excited to head over there later this week to check it out. I have gone to Costco before with family and friends, but I haven’t ever had the chance to take my time to browse and compare prices.

I am planning on doing a some big batch cooking this week to get some meals in the freezer for the kids.  I have a hard time sticking to a light eating plan if I cook a lot of big meals.  So my basic plan for the next couple of weeks is to cook a light recipe 3 to 4 times a week and on the other nights my husband and I will have Soup/Salad/sandwiches and I will feed the kids from my freezer meals.

Monday:  Orange Sesame Chicken Salad for the adults and a fried egg sandwich with the salad for the kids.
Tuesday:  Meatloaf Muffins.  I am going to double this and freeze the rest in 2-serving sizes.

Wednesday:  Soup and salad for the adults and salad and quesadillas for the kids.  I will be making a huge pot of soup for us to eat this week.

Thursday: Creamy Ham and Potato Casserole.  We have lots of leftover ham and this is a low-cal recipe.

Friday:  Rice, black bean, chicken and cheese burritos.  I am going to make a large batch so I will be able to put several servings away in the freezer.

Sunday:  Leftovers with soup and salad
