Another Sunday, another Menu Plan for Monday.
Hehehe. You see what I did there?
First, let’s pat ourselves on our collective backs for sticking to a menu plan. I’ve learned there’s so much you can accomplish when you don’t spend 3 hours a day watching television. (However, I really do miss Jersey Shore.)
I was able to make it through the entire work week without buying any food from restaurants. When I finished my prepared lunch Thursday afternoon, I happily snatched up a leftover chicken wrap from an earlier office meeting. As a result, Friday’s lunch was a cinch. Now, I didn’t cook anything on Saturday due to an impromptu trip to New York City. But I don’t feel guilty one ounce. After all, I saved a ton of money last week.
Look what I made.
You should’ve seen the stew I made. It was gobbled up so fast I couldn’t even get a picture of it. As long as I continue to make productive use of my time, this week will be even better than the last.
Monday – Korean Fried Chicken (I’m still in New York and not cooking.)
Tuesday – Beef and Onion Stuffed Potatoes and Asparagus
Wednesday – Baked Chicken, Indian Spiced Rice and Collard Greens
Thursday/Friday -Baked Pork Chops, Green Beans and Rice
Saturday – Fried Catfish, Frittata with Bacon and Grits (Let’s not pretend we always eat healthy.)
By the way, I’m still shunning recipes. Even though I’m not meticulously measuring ingredients, it’s helpful to get inspiration for highly rated recipes.
