Day One: a happy start

9 Oct

When I had the idea to try a 30 day meal plan, I imagined how nice it would be not to plan menus all week. However, I didn’t consider the effort that would be involved in cooking and eating unfamiliar recipes three times a day. That was the hardest part of today, and I had to write a note for Karl’s lunch to remind him when to eat certain foods.

This morning started off with chicken thighs and sweet potatoes.  This was a winning combination for Karl and I received no complaints. I felt totally satisfied with breakfast and maybe a little more full than with eggs and bacon. Lunch was more chicken and some sautéed zucchini.   The next time zucchini is on the plan, I will substitute something else because neither of us was thrilled with it.

Dinner was a fabulous garlic steak with sautéed onions and carrots, plus beets roasted with fennel and orange. It was such a hit that there are only enough leftovers for one breakfast tomorrow, so Karl gets leftover short ribs.
