Healthy Meal Plan: With snacks and leftovers

Let's talk food. I'm actually quite pleased to say that this past week was the first time since ... last year that I am finally back into the swing of food, food prep, cooking, and have been hungry again. After all of the bad news we've had this year, my appetite and just plain ole desire to cook has been up and down (more down) so far. 

This week, when I sat down to meal plan, I was actually excited again about food! Like really, really excited! I've been trying to get Mr. Toddler more involved in cooking, which has definitely been helping me to get my kitchen groove back. The little man eagerly goes to grab a whisk every time I suggest we do some cooking! 

This week is also quite exciting because the Husband and I are celebrating our six year dating anniversary. Seeing that number written down is actually a bit strange. On the one hand, I feel like we've been together quite a long amount of time, but on the other hand, my grandparents will have been married for 55 years this year. Now that is an anniversary! 

The Husband and I don't do much as far as anniversaries (wedding or dating), but we are going out for dinner and are going to spend the day together. Nothing terribly exciting, but spending quality time together has been quite rare the past few months. Unless you count sawing, hammering, drilling etc while working on our house. 

I don't. I like DIYing and all, but I miss getting dressed up in heels rather than work boots. 

So food: I'm really looking forward to get back to cooking, too! I have quite a few oldies coming back this week in order to keep my time in the kitchen efficient. I also have quite a few new ideas and am really, really, reeaaally looking forward to testing them out! Here's what I have planned:
