Menu Plan Monday Aug. 11- Aug. 17 2008

Hi all, I just started a diet program to help get rid of 65 excess pounds that have crept on over the past 5 years, but I still have to feed a family of 5. So I still need to meal plan and I love to cook. I wanted my family's meals to closely resemble my diet meals. I also wanted to improve and make healthier versions of family favorites.

Looks great! The vegetable enchiladas sound good to me, I'm not sure my hubby would like them unless I threw some chicken in there, but I would love them. :) Great job on the weight loss too!
