Weekly Meal Plan: 3/26 – 4/1

by SPF on March 26, 2012

Here’s last week’s meal plan and how I did:

Wednesday

  • Lunch:  Salad and a Healthy Choice meal.  Done.  I ended up taking off from work this day so, I still kept with my microwave dinner and made the salad.
  • Dinner:  Not sure, going to MILs house.  Not Exactly.  We didn’t end up going to my MIL’s house.  One of the grandkids had a stomach bug so, we decided not to chance it.  We took advantage of the Dominoes pizza special and Pizza Hut wing special instead.

Thursday

  • Lunch: frozen (the steam variety) and a Healthy Choice meal. Done
  • Dinner: Rotisserie chicken, stuffing, green beans.  Fail.  I keep going back and forth with “Do I want to cook the chicken, which requires sitting in the refrigerator for a few days or…should I just go and buy a $7 rotisserie chicken, ready to eat, from the grocery store?”  You see I haven’t made a decision yet on this.

Friday

  • Lunch:  Salad and a Healthy Choice meal.  Fail.  Didn’t bring the dinner.  Instead, went to Subway and got a ham and turkey sub.
  • Dinner:  Salmon, yellow rice.  Done.  I had a really good workout during lunch at work.  When this happens, I usually want to continue eating light for the rest of the day.  Salmon and yellow rice made for a good “end of the day meal”, especially after putting in a few hours worth of yard work when I came home.  Raking up dead grass and leaves is hard work (but I secretly love it)!

Saturday

  • Lunch:  I ended up making a pork chop sandwich (throwing the last pork chop between two slices of bread) to fuel me while I cooked dinner for the weekend and upcoming week.
  • Dinner:  Fried chicken wings, macaroni and cheese, collard greens.

Sunday

  • Lunch:  We have started doing a big breakfast after church, so big that it usually turns into brunch (followed by a nice afternoon nap).  Pancakes, hash browns, scrambled eggs w/ cheese, and bacon.
  • Dinner:  Pot roast, complete with potatoes, carrots, and celery…mmm, mmm good!

The good thing about this past week is that I made the decision (followed by action) to cook dinner for the week ahead of time.  So, this should provide some really good results for the upcoming week’s meal plan.

This week’s meal plan:

Monday

  • Lunch:  Healthy Choice meal, frozen vegetable (steam variety).
  • Dinner:  Either pot roast or white chicken chili that was cooked this weekend.

Tuesday

  • Lunch:  Healthy Choice meal, frozen vegetable (steam variety)
  • Dinner:  Either pot roast or white chicken chili that was cooked this weekend.

Wednesday

  • Lunch:  Healthy Choice meal, frozen vegetable (steam variety).
  • Dinner:  Chinese food..it’s been a while and this will be a nice change up.

Thursday

  • Lunch:   Healthy Choice meal, frozen vegetable (steam variety)
  • Dinner:  Rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to accompany the macaroni n cheese and collard greens cooked that weekend.

Friday

  • Lunch:  We’ll be on a marriage retreat with our church so, I’m off the hook for lunch and dinner today!
  • Dinner:  See above!
