Yay, we made it to our second week of Menu Plan Monday with OrgJunkie.com!  This week, instead of copying a meal plan off of someone else, I actually checked out my fridge and came up with a plan of my own.  Go me!!

Net carb counts per serving are in ( ), and the meals don’t correspond to any certain day of the week since I like to change my mind often.  I’ll plan 5 meals for the week since one day will be left overs, and Sunday’s we try to do tacos or something fun with friends.  I’ll add those recipes at a later date.

  • Spiced Apple Pork Loin (6)
  • Small(148 gram) baked potato (24)

This recipe is from a Menu Plan that I snagged at OrgJunkie.com.  You can find the recipe here.  As always, net carb counts per serving are in ( ).  This recipe serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (0)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon or whole grain mustard (7)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (1)
  • 3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs (16)
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped chives or green onion greens (0)
  • Salt (0)
  • 6 large chicken drumsticks, about 1 1/3 lbs (0)
  • Olive oil (0)

24 Net Carbs Per Serving

Method

1 Place rack on upper third of oven. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat the bottom of a shallow roasting pan or baking sheet with a thin layer of olive oil.

2 Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Mix together the breadcrumbs and minced chives in a separate medium bowl.

3 Sprinkle each drumstick with salt. One by one, dip each drumstick in the mayonnaise mixture, turning to coat. Then dip the drumstick in the breadcrumbs mixture, turning to coat. Place the drumsticks on the prepared roasting pan.

4 Bake chicken for 20-25 minutes, until just cooked through, and juices run clear (not pink) when poked with a sharp knife.

To obtain Devyn’s dinner goal of 60 carbs, she will also have:
