Meal Planning - Week One Results & Week 2 Plan

Week 1 - Was not a rousing success.  I had difficulty sticking to the plan.

Monday - Red Beans and Rice (a no-brainer in NOLA)
CHANGED - We ended up eating frozen fish fillets and french fries, but we did knock out 80 fleur de lis and crawfish-shaped cookies and 2 batches of pralines for the Louisiana History Fais Do Do at school tomorrow.

Tuesday - Smothered Pork Chops with rice and sauteed green beans
ALTERED - Paneed Pork Chops with red beans and rice and steamed broccoli. 
I purchased the pork chops from Wal-Mart (I NEVER buy meat there) instead of my regular grocery store, they were spongy and flavorless.  Lesson learned (again)!

Wednesday - Chicken Enchilada Casserole
AS PLANNED - Yummy layers of chicken with enchilada sauce, corn torillas, bell pepper and onion, corn and black beans and mexican cheese blend.

Thursday - Shrimp and Eggplant Jambalaya (a new recipe from a friend)
LEFTOVERS - Left over Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Will try this new recipie next week!

Friday - BBQ chicken and grilled veggies
CHANGED - Fried Catfish, Sweet potato fries and green salad
Saturday - Grilled Veggie Lasagna
CHANGED - Frozen pizza
Sunday - Dinner at Mom's

Monday - Red Beans & Rice, Green Salad & Cornbread
Tuesday - Roasted/Grilled Veggies over Pasta
Wednesday - Breakfast for Dinner Night!
Thursday - Crawfish Monica, Green Salad & French Bread
Friday - Salad Bar
Saturday - Tacos & Taco Salad
Sunday - Dinner at Mom's


  1. Oh my goodness, I would never try to stick to a meal plan. No matter how hard I try things always go awry. I'll take your suggestion about the chops at Walmart. I don't know there is something wrong with the idea of buying meat at Walmart! LOL

  2. Good luck with week two Steph!
