Anyone remember 10 Things I Hate About You? I was about to type that I was back in the game, and this was all I could think of:

And I'm back in the game!
And I'm back in the game!

You know, after the party where Kat gets really drunk and Cameron gives Bianca a ride home and she kisses him? Yeah, I just spent like 20 minutes looking for a GIF of that moment and totally went down memory lane. I could probably quote just about that entire movie even today.

ANYWAY, I digress, and the real point is that here is my first menu plan in WEEKS!

out with friends–we’re trying out the new location of FLIP Burger and I’m planning to get a Nutella milkshake even if the cold kills me!

pulled pork (that I made in the crockpot on Saturday)
tater tots (from frozen…one of my weaknesses)
broccoli slaw

It’s supposed to be WICKED cold in Atlanta so I’m planning on a nice warm soup!
creamy slow-cooker tortellini soup

pizza at ATL RUG…I’m trying to be more intentional about learning and networking this year, plus going to this is a good way to spend time with Andy!

tamales (I splurged at Trader Joe’s at the end of last month when we had a lot of grocery money left and I bought a bunch of things for the freezer, including tamales! We’ll see how they are.)
Mexican sour cream rice

cheddar-barbecue mini meatloaf cups
some sort of potato
some sort of vegetable
(Do you like how specific the plan for this meal is?)

another extremely specific meal plan that as of now only includes…
honey-mustard pretzel chicken (I also bought some chicken tenders at Trader Joe’s.)
I’ll figure the rest out eventually!

What’s on your plate this week? Have you recovered from the holiday gluttony? Are you embarking on any new diet or exercise journeys for 2014?

I’m linking up with Organizing Junkie’s Monday Menu Plan!
