Weekly Menu 12/3

It took me forever to come up with my menu for this week. I’ve been striving to make sure my three meals are more balanced, aren’t too carb heavy and include lots of vegetables.

But for whatever reason, it’s been a pain this week. I paged through a cookbook looking for inspiration and was quasi inspired by a spinach tortellini recipe, but I think I’m going to adapt a pasta recipe of one of my friends instead of using the one in the cookbook.

Luckily, this won’t require too big of a shopping trip because I have a lot of the items in my kitchen already. I try to keep things at about the $40 mark per week, so I rely on big bags of frozen chicken a lot or BOGOs of tuna. What can I say? Poor young professional here.

So, here’s my menu for the week. Nutrition freaks, comment as you will.
