It’s only been oh, 5 months (!!!!!) since I last posted our meal plan. I love sharing our dinner plan with you, and I know there are a few of you who check my plan for your own dinner ideas, so I hope you are as excited as I am to have it back!
I know a lot of people think I’m a little crazy for jumping back into sort of fancy dinners (meaning they are from scratch and sometimes complicated), and making soup and bread from scratch. I feel like I should clarify that my family doesn’t expect these meals, I just really love cooking. If you can count making healthy meals as a hobby, than count it as one for me! I love looking through my cookbooks and Pinterest for new recipes, tweaking them to fit our tastes, and seeing if I can even make it with sale items. And planning out these dinners allows me to relax, knowing that I don’t have to think up dinners at the last minute each night.
But, don’t think things always go as planned. I do have a 8 week old after all, which means sometimes she needs me and I can’t stand in front of the stove or oven for even 15 minutes! That’s when the frozen pizza, box of pasta, or takeout happens. We aren’t perfect, we don’t eat super clean and healthy all the time, but I don’t think anyone does. But this week I will try my best, since we have been enjoying far too many cakes and pies since we’ve had several birthdays plus Thanksgiving recently. When my hubby requests salad for the meal plan, I know it’s time to step up on the veggies, and cut back on the carbs!
So here is what we are eating this week:
Monday – Thanksgiving leftovers with the inlaws (turkey, ham, more pie, but lots of veggies too!)
Tuesday – Bill Clinton’s Fav Enchiladas, using leftover turkey (my husband requested this, so a change to the meal plan was made)
Wednesday – Salisbury steak with homemade bread and Greek Salad (with my favourite and super easy dressing)
Thursday – Cheesy Sausage Skillet with garden salad
Friday – Baked tilapia with french fries and peas
Saturday – Harvest bake (with sausage, apples, raisins and rice) and garden salad
I also have plans to make soup at some point, and probably muffins too.
As always, I am linking up over at OrgJunkie. Happy meal planning everyone!
