If you are one of the people who cook exactly as planned during the start of the week, hats off to you. I like to start out with a plan understanding it is subject to change. As a result, there has probably been at least one change every week since I started Menu Plan Monday the beginning of the year. That’s the fun of life!
Monday: Jerk Style Chicken with brown rice and corn
Tuesday: Beef Soup (made with beef, stock and onion gravy left over from Sunday)
Wednesday: Chicken Sausage, Beans and Rice
It was a tiring day for me so we split a large burrito from a taco shop. Not the healthiest but it satisfied the craving.
Thursday: Spaghetti with turkey meatballs, green salad
We forgot the salad (something we’re working on) but added garlic toast. I love Trader Joe’s turkey meatballs.
Friday: Tilapia with baked potato and green beans
My husband and I had both eaten rather large lunches so I finished my lunch leftovers and he had a can of soup.
We had what was planned for Friday (tilapia) except I changed the potatoes to fried instead of baked.
Instead of going out for my son’s visit, we had a tasty meal at home. I cooked grass-fed tri-tip (with lots of onions, peppers and spices) and we had that shredded over brown rice with a side of corn.
This week is going to be very light on menu planning because I’m doing a three day juice cleanse at the end of the week.
Monday: Chicken Tortilla Soup
Tuesday: Costco Roast Chicken, baked potatoes, green beans
Wednesday: Chicken Caesar Salad
Thursday: Valentine’s Dinner Out
What’s your dinner plan this week?
