Here's our menu for the week:
Monday: Spaghetti with meat sauce (with some hidden pureed butternut squash - I'll let you know if it remains "hidden")
Tuesday: Black Bean chicken, the Good Rice, and broccoli

Spray baking dish with pam. Put chicken in dish and sprinkle with paprika and cumin. Place cheese slices on top of each breast. Pour black beans on top. Cover and bake at 350 for about 50 mins to an hour.
Good Rice (OH SO DELICIOUS)

18 oz. bottle barbecue sauce
1 can coke
Put pork, coke and sauce in crock pot. Cook on low for 7-9 hours (depends on crock pot - mine is usually done after 7 hours)
Friday: Probably pizza, our normal Friday night dinner
Saturday: Matt will eat leftover pork shoulder, and I'll be livin' it up at a bachelorette party! Because you know how pregnant girls like to party - a little dinner, and then back early to the hotel to enjoy a night away from having to be woken the next morning by a little one!
