Meal Plan for 5/18/13 through 5/24/13

So, who else felt a loss when the site was down yesterday? LOL! I didn’t realize how much I looked at the site until I couldn’t look at it. And it was kind of a pain to not be able to look at my tracker! But I’m glad they got the problem resolved. And, now I can post my blog! Here’s next week’s plan…

SATURDAY – I don’t have any food plans at all for Saturday. We might be out running errands, who knows. Also we are going to a Rockies baseball game in the evening so I’ll probably be eating there.

LUNCH Not sure yet

DINNER: Grilled Mexican Roadside Chicken www.seriouseats.com/reci
This is another recipe from Mexican Everyday. I am not going to do a whole chicken, but rather 4 bone-in skin on chicken thighs. I haven’t quite figured out sides yet, maybe some grilled asparagus and some tortillas. Like I’ve mentioned before, figuring out calories for bone-in chicken is hard, but so far I have this at 410 for 2 thighs.

LUNCH: Leftover Roadside Chicken

DINNER: Asian Turkey Meatballs with Sesame Lime Dipping Sauce, Brown Rice, Snow Peas www.skinnytaste.com/2010
. I’ve had these saved while, and I have one last package of ground turkey in the freezer so I thought I’d try these out. I’ll have one of the extra servings for lunch, and then will freeze the other one. I will be doing it as 3 servings instead of 4, so each serving will have 4 meatballs and will be 393 calories. I’ll serve with a half cup of brown rice and a handful of snow peas, and top it all with the dipping sauce. Total meal calories are 514.

LUNCH: Leftover Asian Turkey Meatballs

DINNER: Whole Wheat Pancakes with Bacon pinchofyum.com/whole-whe
OK so this might seem silly but I love pancakes, and I rarely get the opportunity to make them since J prefers French toast or waffles. I have some bacon to use up so I thought, why not have breakfast for dinner one night? I found this recipe for whole wheat pancakes that only makes 6 pancakes so I’m going to give it a go. I’ll freeze the other 3 to have another time. 3 pancakes is 451 calories, and they look to be pretty good sized. Combine that with 4 slices of center cut bacon, and the entire meal is 551 calories.

LUNCH: I received a free hamburger coupon from a local gourmet hamburger place near my work for my birthday, so I am going to have that for lunch. My birthday isn’t til Friday but who says I can’t celebrate early? Burgers are one of my favorite foods, and the ones at this place are soooo good.

DINNER: Red Chile Chicken with Rice ellysaysopa.com/2009/09/
I do not use the beans because I do not like them. I’ve actually made this before even though it’s from Mexican Everyday. The first time I made it I thought it would be OK to sub chipotle chile powder for the ancho. Well, it’s not. It made it unbearably hot. So this time I’m going to use the proper chile powder! I will also throw in some frozen corn and I have 18 ounces of chicken. Total calories are 395, so it’s a good pairing on a day where I’ll be eating a big lunch.

LUNCH: Leftover Red Chile Chicken with Rice

DINNER: So remember how I said I love hamburgers? Well, I’m going to make my own at home. I grind my own meat for burgers, it’s a combination of chuck and some bacon, and they are delicious. Each one is 315 calories. I’ll also make some oven fries. Total meal calories, including some mayo and a bun, is 650.

FRIDAY My Birthday!
LUNCH: Leftover Red Chile Chicken with Rice

DINNER: Haven’t decided yet. It’ll be one of my splurge meals since it’s my birthday. I might get some fried chicken!!

I hope everyone has a good week!

    I know what you mean about pancakes. I use whole wheat too. Having breakfast for dinner seems like a special treat, and it's easy to boot. As long as we carefully planning quantity and sides for a well balanced meal, it works great!.
