February menu: week 3, week 2 on the diet

We're halfway through February already!
Baseball begins this week... although we don't have a working schedule yet.
This makes it difficult for me to plan meals...

I've make a pound of mini-meatballs, cooked chicken, and am cooking the turkey that I planned for last week but did not get to. Hubby was able to add veggies to his diet this week, so we are definitely excited about that. He's lost almost 11 pounds so far, so I am happy to help him in any way that I can.

Here are my ideas for this week... we'll see how it actually turns out!

Sunday~ Leftover grilled meats for ds#3 and me - mine was tossed with spaghetti squash, grape tomatoes, and feta cheese. Dh had meatballs sauteed with onions, peppers and mushrooms. YEA for veggies this week!
Monday~ Hubs has class. Ds and I will fend for ourselves - probably something starchy that Dad can't have!
Tuesday~ Turkey and green beans that was planned for last week. Maybe with some mushrooms if I go to the grocery store.
Wednesday~ Sandwiches, I think - or some variation with lettuce wraps - oooh!!! I've got it - teriyaki chicken lettuce wraps. That will work! Just have to be careful about the sugar in the teriyaki.
Thursday~ Tuna salad. Been a while since we've had tuna fish, and since I'm needing to include protein with every meal, it's forcing me to be a little more creative.
Friday~ I'm longing for some breakfast for dinner. Hubby goes for another doctor's appointment today, so maybe he'll get to add in some fruits. We'll adjust accordingly.
Saturday~ depends on the doc's new orders! And we may be celebrating my mom's birthday...depends if she has recovered from being sick.
