Meal Planner Tuesday-- link up!

Here is what the Buettemeyer family is eating this week!

Monday


I made Hungry Girl's "The Whole Enchilada Soup" and cheese quesadillas for dinner last night. I followed her recipe except I let it cook in the crock pot for 7 hours on low, the flavor was amazing and only has 109 calories per cup, you will probably find out very quickly that I love soup. Link to the recipe here.

Tuesday
Pan Seared Tilapia, broccoli with cheese sauce, mashed potatoes and 1/2 sandwich round

For the tilapia... I buy the frozen tilapia in individual packages and then put them in a bowl of warm water still in the package before I am ready to cook them.

-Heat 1 tbsp olive oil on Medium in a large sauce pan.
-Season tilapia with salt, pepper and italian seasoning and place seasoned side down, then season the other side.
-Cook for 3 min (or until brown) and flip.
-Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork about 5 min total.

Wednesday
Red beans and rice with corn bread (I use the Zatarans box of RB and R and add a little smoked sausage, and who doesn't LOVE jiffy corn bread??)

Thursday
Lloyd's honey BBQ pork on Hawaiian sweet rolls and mixed steamed veggies (easy for Bryan to make on a 12 hour shift night)

Friday
leftover RB and R or Enchilada soup, if it makes it that long.

I'll post pictures as I make the meals this week so everyone can see how yummy it looks, I had everything in my pantry/fridge for these meals already so there isn't as much fresh stuff as we would usually eat but I'm trying to use up what we have so I don't have to pack and move as much this weekend.

I also thought I would share that I try to eat very well for breakfast and lunch so I can eat a little bit more at dinner. My breakfast is usually a weight watcher smoothie (2 pts!) with some fruit and sometimes PB added or fiber plus cereal.

Lunch is usually Progresso soup with a WW point value of 1-3 with either a small quesadilla or some crackers and chips or some days a turkey sandwich with chips. I have been eating some fruit and yogurt in the morning for a snack and some veggies in the after noon (stuck on edamame right now, yum yum!).

So lets all link up so you can all share your meal plans, can't wait to see what you all are eating!
