Meal Plan 09/10/2018 - 09/14/2018

Everything feels overwhelming and unmanageable right now so in an attempt to quell the despair spiral, I spent today meal prepping my butt off. It helped that the weather was rainy and dreary all weekend. It was the perfect weather to have a stove of something soothing bubbling away for an afternoon. 

I made a big pot of spaghetti bolognese that we'll have one night and use the leftovers as Michigans. I made a batch of mujadara to support my goal to eat more iron-rich non-meat foods. I made devilled eggs to grab as quick breakfasts or to throw in salad for a quick packed lunch. 

And I made Smitten Kitchen's purple plum torte and a batch of chocolate chip cookies for snacking. 


Monday: mujadara and green salad for Meatless Monday (with a side of chicken wings for Shawn).

Tuesday: spaghetti bolognese served with green salad and garlic bread.

Wednesday: turkey burrito bowls. We had these in our HelloFresh box last week and they were a huge hit. If you are interested in trying HelloFresh and want $40 off your first box, use this code (and I'll get $25 off my next box!)

Thursday: Michigans using the leftover bolognese sauce. Roasted broccoli.

Friday: out with friends

What's your menu look like this week?
