Menu Plan Monday

I recently started subscribing to Cooking Light, A Taste of Home and Weight Watchers Magazine.  I really want to start feeding my family in a way that includes more fresh vegetables and flavor.  Here’s what’s on the docket this week:

Asparagus Egg Drop Soup (I can’t find a similar recipe online, but it’s just asparagus, chicken broth, eggs, a bit of ham, & soy sauce).  I love getting the large packs of asparagus at Costco, but my family gets tired of roasted asparagus too much.  I thought I’d try another option.  I can scan it and send it to you if you’re interested (it’s only 4 points).

Pan-Grilled Pork Chops with Grilled Pineapple Salsa (we all love grilled pineapple, so I thought this might be nice to try!) — I’ll probably have it with a bit of brown rice (only 5 points, without rice)

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes — Spencer keeps asking for pancakes for breakfast, but it’s too many points and work and well… I thought we’d try it for dinner.  There’s a chance a few chocolate chips will end-up in some of them. (points value: 7 with syrup and butter, sans chocolate chips)

Chickpeas with Broccoli Rabe and Bacon — this looks like something new and different.  I just need to find broccoli rabe.  I am thinking that is something that Mr. Trader Joe can help me with. (Points value: 5)

Anyway, I always like trying something new and different.  Go me.
