Meal Plan 04/17/2017 - 04/21/2017

I'm trying to cut down on meal prep and adopt a more minimalist approach to cooking. I love to cook and bake but I hate having hundreds of different ingredients cluttering up my cupboards and fridge. My goal this week is to clean out my freezer and cook as much from what I've already got in the pantry as possible.

Monday: Tarka Dhal over quinoa for Meatless Monday. Served with apple slices.

Tuesday: Bacon cheeseburger sliders served with chopped veggies and homemade ranch dip.

Wednesday: Cobb Salad made with spinach instead of mixed greens and goat cheese instead of blue.

Thursday: Appies for dinner (chicken wings, fresh veggies with hummus, fresh fruit with peanut butter dip, cheese and crackers).

Friday: Dinner with friends.

What's on your menu this week?

Meal Plan 11/28/2016 - 12/02/2016

I'm in a bit of a funk, food and otherwise. I know if I don't make a meal plan we'll end up eating takeout or grilled cheese sandwiches every night this week so I'm digging deep and trying to think of easy meals that will fill our bellies and make us feel good.

Monday: Mujadara topped with the garlic sauce I make when I do the oven-roasted chicken shawarma.

Tuesday: One-pot Swedish Meatball Pasta served with responsibility broccoli

Wednesday: turkey tacos served with fresh guacamole

Thursday: roasted sweet potatoes with leftover taco toppings

Friday: Cozy Butternut, Sweet Potato, and Red Lentil Stew

Let's see if Shawn notices we're eating vegetarian meals twice this week. I should probably grab some beef jerky from the butcher so I can throw it at him when he starts complaining about wasting away.

What are you eating this week?
