Menu Monday + A New Recipe Win/Fail {2.4.19}

This is what we ate last week – it was such a delicious one! I spent a couple hours in the kitchen doing meal prep at the beginning of the week and it made a huge difference.

I prepped the homemade granola and the salad that I took for my lunches at work. That salad recipe will stay fresh in the fridge all week, so all you have to do is grab a container and you’re set!




The Oven Fried Pork Chop recipe was a new one I found in my Southern Living magazine. Their recipes are usually so reliable and amazing, but this one was WAY too salty. I am fairly confident that I followed the recipe correctly and didn’t oversalt it on my own. There was just too much salt on the pork chops – we ended up scraping the breading off and eating them plain.

However. We loved the flavor of the mustard mixture on the beans and potatoes – I’ll be doing that part again for sure. I used russet potatoes instead of the sweet potatoes that the recipe called for (we do not like sweet potatoes) but they were delicious. It’s a really nice change from the regular garlic or rosemary seasoning I use on potatoes and beans!

  1. Everything sounds delicious! Sorry your pork chops were so salty. Glad you were able to make it work. My husband likes things really salty so I usually just add a little salt and then let him salt his own plate. I’m planning to make chili, chicken lo mein and french dip sandwiches this week. I need to go and stock up on produce at Aldi this week to fill my fridge with healthy snack options.
