Menu Plan Monday ~ Mar 21, 2011

by Shawanda Greene

Tender Beef Stew

Yes. It does taste as good as it looks.

It’s amazing how shame can motivate you. I awoke this morning overcome with anxiety and guilt for cooking once last week. Writing another “I’m going to get it together” post this week would be – well – embarrassing.

Since there was still a bit of time for me to redeem myself, I raced to the grocery store to pick up a few ingredients. I’ve been feverishly chopping, cutting, simmering and searing for the last few hours.

Although I’m exhausted, I’m thankful I prepare a weekly menu plan.

Fried Catfish and French Fries

I didn't actually cook this. Does buying and eating it count for anything?

Monday: Fried Catfish Fillets and French Fries - Personally, I prefer Louisiana Fish Fry with a bit of all purpose flour. Old Bay Seasoning for Seafood is all you need for flavoring. If you like a little heat – like me – add cayenne pepper. This is probably a Southern thing, but fried catfish is absolutely heavenly with a side of mustard. Mmm.

Tuesday: Leftovers

Collard Greens with Smoked Turkey

Collard greens are probably my favorite vegetable. They're just a pain to prepare.

Wednesday/Thursday: Slow Cooked Shredded Beef Tacos – I’ve got a boneless chuck roast marinating in taco seasoning mix as we speak. Hopefully, this will turn out to be a really great idea. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Friday: Smothered Pork Chops – With almost 100% certainty, I can say that I’m calling my mama for help with this one. Although the recipe looks delicious, it seems like a lot.

Saturday/Sunday: Ya’ll know I’m eating out.

I'm from North Florida. I just can't shake it. You don't know how hard it was for me to choose French fries over grits with my fried catfish. :)
