I was so happy for last week’s meal plan to end since it had no meals for me Friday through Sunday thanks to the juice cleanse! I’ll recap the dinners we did eat.
Recap Feb. 11 -18
Monday: Chicken Tortilla Soup
This was a prepackaged meal from Dinner Studio. I loved the soup, but need to teach my husband how to shred chicken. At least he tried!
Tuesday: Costco Roast Chicken, baked potatoes, green beans
We buy one of these chickens every other week; it’s delicious and cheap!
Wednesday: Chicken Caesar Salad
We had mini-cornbread with the salad.
Thursday: Valentine’s Dinner Out
We tried a new restaurant, Vintana, for their special Valentine’s Day menu. This restaurant is uniquely located on the third floor of a Lexus dealership. Once you’re up there you forget it due to the views and the restaurant decor.
We each had lobster bisque that was as good as any I’ve ever had. This was accompanied with popovers and a jalapeno citrus butter. I couldn’t taste the jalapeno but the popover reminded me of my mom’s homemade rolls.
Then I had a seafood platter that came with a mini (very mini) crabcake, grilled shrimp skewer and Cajun mahi-mahi. The side dish was cauliflower au gratin. It was fantastic!
My husband had prime rib with the biggest baked potato we’ve ever seen and broccoli. We finished it off with a rich, chocolate potted brownie with walnuts and banana ice cream.
Menu Plan for This Week
Monday: Dinner out at Souplantation
Tuesday: Chicken Di Parma with Steamed Broccoli & Savory Orzo
Wednesday: Ginger Beef Stir Fry with Jasmine Rice
Thursday: Chicken Sausage, Beans and Rice
Friday: Mahi-Mahi with fried potatoes and green beans
Sunday: Pork Chops, baked potatoes, corn
So, that’s the plan. We’ll see how well it goes. What’s on your menu this week?
This week is frustrating because Cheryl and I both organized runs this weekend (lots of eating on the run) and next weekend our kids participate in the state swim meet in Austin (five hours away….and more food on the run). I’m glad I came here today. I need to plan carefully the three days we’re at home this week to counter all the restaurant food we’ll be consuming.
I don’t know if I could do a juice cleanse. How was it?
Our menu plan for the week features lots of slow cooker soups that I am going to double so I can stick some in the freezer for meals in the next week or two.

It was not as bad as I was expecting though there were downsides which I’ll go into detial on Friday. I love soups and that’s a great idea to double the amount.
