menu monday mania

by @according2kelly on April 19, 2010

this week is all about carbo loading i made a last minute decision to join a team of racers running the southern california ragnar relay.  seriously though, what am i thinking? running back-to-back 200 mile races? let’s just say there will be lots of carbs, lots of ice & lots of advil involved. with that… here’s my carbo-heavy menu plan.

* monday: lasagna
* tuesday: mexican chicken & rice soup
* wednesday: chili
* thursday: mediterranean pasta
* friday: the kids & hubby are gonna have to fend for themselves, seeing as i’ll be a wee bit busy.

next i’m hoping to whip up some tikka masala. anyone have a fabulous recipe they’d love to share? & as always, please share your own menus & if you have any brilliant pasta recipes, share those too! with so many races coming up, i see a lot of pasta in our future!

Oh and of course some Edamamae in there too!!! Now I'm hungry :-) .-= Lala @ Lenz Love´s last blog ..Graduation Day =-.

Hi Kelly, I saw you on KTLA yesterday morning explaining the taga bike/stroller. I loved it! My husband and I have been thinking of getting something like this for our 12 month old daughter. We want to start including her in some family activities. : ) Love your blog and Menu Monday Mania! I am still a young bride (2 years+a couple months) and a new mom...in desperate need of menu's every week. Thanks for your ideas! I'll keep checking!

Well, all my meal menu always involving carbs. Only carbs that made my stomach believe I have a decent meal. In turn, I have to gave extra miles jog. That's should do it. Great menu by the way. Loves it
