Meal Plan Monday: A Brief Revision

Meal Plan Monday

The meal plan has been altered slightly.  Friday was Muffin’s Family Night at Vacation Bible School.  The “light refreshments” resembled more a feast or a banquet than cookies and punch (yet there were cookies and punch).  So, the French bread pizzas of Friday were shelved for a bit.  Then, Saturday, my mom cooked for us (Josh helped set up her Roku and added pictures to her Picasa account), another feast of barbecued boneless ribs, potato salad, baked beans, broccoli salad, and cake.  So, the smothered chicken didn’t exactly happen.

I decided we would just push the menu up a couple of days.  So, Sunday, we should have had the French bread/mini pizzas.  Well, I also had a hankering for a BLT.  I asked Josh and Muffin which they would rather have for lunch and which for supper (out of the pizzas and BLT).  Muffin wanted the pizzas for lunch, so the BLT went on Sunday’s supper menu.

So, the smothered chicken gets moved to Monday, and the rest of the week will be re-evaluated.


Saturday:  dinner at Mom’s (yum)

Sunday:  BLT (A brief side note on the BLT:  the bread must be toasted and white–although Josh prefers wheat, both sides must have a thin slathering of mayo, on top of the mayo on both sides you must have freshly ground black pepper, on the one side of bread you must layer half pieces of Brookshire’s thick sliced bacon, followed by four to five slices of thin cut tomato and a handful of lettuce.  Then you must top with the other slice of bread and smoosh down.  The juices of the tomato and a bit of bacon grease melds delightfully with the pepper and the mayo to make a delightful dressing for the lettuce on the sandwich.) and strawberries with the world’s easiest two-ingredient fruit dip (about three-quarter cups sour cream mixed with a few tablespoons of brown sugar.  Let it stand a few minutes, and then stir it again).

Monday:   Smothered Chicken from Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms, veg of some kind, mashed taters (Sesame Chicken was supplanted again!)

Tuesday:  Sesame Freaking Chicken (recipe given to me by my coworker Holly…and I am bound and determined to make it this time), egg rolls, rice, fortune cookies (maybe with a stir-fried veg)

Wednesday:   Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops (recipe all over the place), rice (maybe a wild rice blend), green veg

Thursday:  leftovers/hot dogs or Chicken and Cornbread Casserole from Bread, Booze, and Bacon, salad with vinaigrette

Friday:  One Pot Pizza Pasta (Budget Savvy Diva), bread, salad

Saturday:   Southern Buttermilk Fried Chicken (A Bountiful Kitchen), mashed potatoes, veg

Sunday:   Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Casserole slow cooker (Country Cook), green veg
