Valentine’s Weekend

I have lots of posts in store for you this week between maternity photos, diaper bag goodies, nursery tour..etc! I am going to start off with a Valentine’s recap as well as this weeks menu! Hope you enjoy.

020Even though there was a threat of snow this weekend, Kevin and I decided to take a drive to Stew Leonard’s and get some real goodies! We have SUCH a busy week that I really focused on easy, quick meals to get us through so there’s no bad choices being made.

Monday: Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken! This is a newbie – throw chicken breasts, chili’s, jalapenos, salsa, corn, black beans and broth into the Crock Pot and cook on low 6-8 hours, shred the chicken and enjoy by itself, in a wrap or in a taco! I prepped on Sunday so I can just throw the insert into the base first thing in the morning and set the timer.

Tuesday: Ham, Zucchini and Cheese Panini’s

Wednesday: Black Bean Burgers. These will be easy enough to prep the night before and put in the fridge for dinner after my Dr. Appointment.

Thursday: Most likely leftovers, or something quick with shrimp or chicken – since we always have that in the freezer!

Friday: Dinner out for Kevin’s 30th Birthday!!

Kev and I decided to stay home for Valentine’s Day and make a special meal in our PJs! Dressing up right now is pretty difficult and I can’t eat much anyway…so I’d rather save money and cook something scrumptious! Enjoy!

And, because seafood isn’t top on my list lately, we settled on Scallops in a brown butter sauce with capers. I couldn’t resist having SOMETHING festive, so I made heart-shaped roasted potatoes with heart-shaped homemade butter. This was a fun and delicious meal to spend with my Valentine and rest before becoming a family of 3!

I hope you had a day full of lots of love and chocolate and only a little snow if you live in the Northeast! <3
