Jen's Dinner Plan Feb 24-Mar 2
Need some new ideas for dinner meals? Here are Jen’s dinner menus (and notes) from the week prior:
Sunday: Late lunch-early dinner at The Little Beet in NYC
This was before I took the train back to DC.
The Pennsey at Penn Station is a fun place to get food in NYC.
2 days of eating out and I am ready for home cooked food.
Monday: Salads with Chicken
Requested by the family - hubs and daughter, actually. Fine with me!
I marinated chicken breasts for a few hours in lemon juice, olive oil, fresh crushed garlic, salt and pepper.
While my chicken cooked in the grill pan, I made the salads.
Simple dressing - olive oil and vinegar.
Tuesday: Tortilla-Less Fajitas
Yep! Fajitas without the tortillas!
Hubby grilled the chicken and sauteed the peppers and onions on the grill pan.
Black refried beans as a side.
Made extra for another night.
Wednesday: Wild Salmon Patties and Roasted Asparagus
Seriously the best salmon patty recipe. Family loves it!
My daughter picked our veggie. Love me some roasted asparagus!
There are some nights when this is the best plan. And this was pre-planned.
I will only buy a very select few frozen meals. Amy’s brand are some of the best.
Friday: Leftovers- Tortilla-Less Fajitas
Love me some mexi food!
Easy Friday night.
Saturday: Date night with the hubs!
We tried a restaurant we haven’t been to yet and it was good! Fun atmosphere, great live music, and right by our house...prefect combo!
Eating out game plan: Decide ahead if this will be a time you pick a more indulgent dish or order something healthy. One splurge dinner won’t ruin your whole week of healthy eating. Just decide and plan ahead!
When I eat out, I tend to choose a healthier main dish because I would rather enjoy dessert or a drink.
Let me know if you try any of these recipes or have any good ones of your own to share.
