This week’s meal plan was a little more challenging than usual for me. My husband is doing the South Beach diet so it means a little more protein and veggies added to our usual mix. It’s hard to break the mold of protein-veggie-starch that I’ve come accustomed to. And no Friday night pizza! That was the hardest thing to adjust since it was the one day of the week I didn’t have to come up with something.  Thankfully I went to a Wildtree freezer meal workshop and made 10 meals that are now ready to go for the next month. The “Best Burgers” will replace pizza for Friday night this week.

Monday Meal Plan Jan 14

Sunday~ Leftover smoked mozzarella and tomato meatloaf. Another Wildtree dinner and it was yummy.

Monday~ Honey Balsamic Drumsticks. Wildtree again…I’m not typically a fan of cooking drumsticks but I thought the kids might like the novelty of them, and the variety.  Served with steamed broccoli and tangy balsamic couscous (for some of us carb eaters).

Tuesday~ Mexican Black Bean Chili with Sausage. Looks like it’s South Beach approved and delicious.

Wednesday~ C.O.R.N. (Clean out refrigerator night!)

Thursday~ Teriyaki Salmon, steamed green beans and pumpkin mac n cheese.

Friday~ Best Burgers from my Wildtree stash. Serve with whatever veggies are left from the week, either in a stir-fry or salad.

    Our meal planning as been all South Beach for the past week, and I’ll continue to do so for a while. I am happy to share some of my menu planning if you need some suggestions. It’s hard to switch gears when you have a working and wonderful system. He’s lucky to have you switching things up.
