Meal Plan 03/18/19 - 03/22/19

Last week we had snow and this weekend it’s been warm enough to have the windows wide open. I don’t want to jinx it but Spring might have arrived. It’s barbecue season, babies.


Monday: Barbecued cheeseburgers served with cucumber salad.

Tuesday: Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl

Wednesday: Salmon Cakes served with homemade tartar sauce and green salad.

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Barbecued cheeseburgers again because I can’t be stopped.

Meal Plan 03/11/19 - 03/15/19

So I think I’ve figured out why I’m finding meal planning / cooking such a drag lately. It doesn’t matter how prepared I am, it never ends. I can have a perfect week full of carefully planned meals, efficient grocery shopping trips, nary a takeout menu in sight and ... then I have to do it all over again. One perfect week means nothing. 

But not striving for a perfect week means a lot of delivery pizza and cereal for dinner so here I am, begrudgingly planning another week’s meals. 


Monday: Spaghetti served with green salad

Tuesday: Shredded chicken tacos served with purple cabbage slaw

Wednesday: Tom Yum soup with tofu

Thursday: Loaded nachos with the leftover components from Tuesday’s tacos 

Friday: some sort of roasted vegetable / protein sheet pan situation (suggestions welcome!)

Meal Plan 03/04/19 - 03/08/19

I didn’t meal plan or grocery shop or do food prep on Sunday. Instead, I grumbled about meal planning and grocery shopping and food prepping. The problem with grumbling instead of doing, is that when dinner time comes, you don’t have any food in the fridge and you need to order takeout. And so, in the spirit of “done imperfectly is better than not done at all,” here is this week’s meal plan.


Monday:  Indian food takeout. 

Tuesday: pancakes and cheesy scrambled eggs served with fresh fruit.

Wednesday: some sort of pasta with chicken and sauce.

Thursday: turkey tacos served with purple cabbage slaw and fresh guacamole.

Friday: homemade calzones served with chopped veggies.

Meal Plan 02/25/19 - 03/01/19

I am struggling to stay on top of food and laundry and life in general. I’ve been feeling really down about it all but I’m trying to be more gentle with myself. This is the tail end of an endless winter. The days are short and the sky is grey and it’s okay if everything feels challenging and uncomfortable right now.  

I’m not making any magic with this week’s meal plan but at least I’m making an effort.  


Monday: turkey burrito bowls with roasted veg and fresh guacamole. Today I roasted sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts and cooked a pot of wild rice. Tomorrow I just have to quickly cook up some ground turkey with taco seasoning and make the guacamole.

Tuesday: loaded nachos with the leftover components from the burritos bowls. I’ve got a pile of avocados approaching ripeness so I’ll probably make fresh guacamole two nights in a row. Who said I wasn’t making magic?

Wednesday: baked chicken breast with a garlic mushroom cream sauce served with roasted  broccoli and garlic smashed baby potatoes. 

Thursday: spaghetti

Friday: pizza and chicken wings
