It’s been a while since I’ve menu planned, but I’m back to it.
You realize the value of menu planning when you find yourself thoughtlessly munching on the complimentary office junk food because you’re starving and you’re too busy to buy a real meal.
Since I can’t mentally or emotionally afford to regain the 20 pounds I’ve lost over the last few months, it’s time to get serious about planning my meals.
I want to publicly thank Chipotle and Super Pollo for providing me with healthy (mostly) meals while I’ve taken a break from my domestic cooking duties, but I’m bored with you.
Let’s see how I can shake things up this week.
Monday: Whatever I want from Pinzimini.
I’ve got a Living Social voucher that’s about to expire.
Tuesday: Scrambled eggs and yellow rice with black beans and hamburger patties.
I know this meal sounds a little weird, but I need to eat the food I’ve already prepared before it goes bad.
Wednesday: Slow cooker chuck roast, mushrooms & onions with mixed vegetables
Thursday: Chicken sausage, potatoes, peppers, onions, and mushrooms topped with crumbled feta cheese.
This will be my first attempt at this dish, but it tastes phenomenal when my honey makes it.
Thursday: Slow cooker Filipino Adobo chicken, collard greens and rice
Friday – Left overs
Saturday – Night out
Sunday: Blackened catfish on the George Foreman Grill with broccoli
