This week’s meal plan is brought to you by Heather’s sister Keely!
Hi Everybody!! I have to admit, I am the meal planner in our relationship but have somehow managed to hit the husband lottery when it comes to doing the actual cooking. We have a handy dandy chalkboard on our fridge – I find the meals & what page of cookbook or where on Pinterest to find the recipe … the rest is history. This is a rare week where we don’t have a lot going on, so we’re going to enjoy it by eating all of the favourite things. Here are some of the go-to meals in our house; I could probably just put this meal plan on repeat for the next 100 years:
Snack: Turkey Crescent Rolls – Ok, It’s not that exciting. But it is so easy. And Quick. The only problems are trying not to overindulge when they’re fresh out of the oven and to save some for the rest of the week.
Monday: Zucchini stuffed chicken, and home made sweet potato fries. It’s a bit of work, but it is so worth it.
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday – Duh! Lately we’re onto the Mahi Mahi Fish Taco Recipe from the Skinny Taste Cookbook… I don’t know what Mahi Mahi is, so we usually use tilapia. Complete with the avocado sauce, and lime slaw, I could eat at least ten of these. Pairs well with a certain light lime beer beverage or a margarita.
Wednesday: Garlic Chilli Shrimp Pasta – We’ve morphed this recipe from somewhere but it involves a bit of marinating, a bit of spicy, and a whole lot of delicious: shrimp, garlic, broccoli and whatever sort of noodles we have in the cupboard.
Thursday: Greek wraps. OMG. They are a bit of work, but now that BBQ Season is here, it is important to eat as much as we can because it will be winter before we know it. We marinate for a few hours and skewer the chicken, peppers and red onion. Add all of that to a fresh pita and top with lettuce, feta, tzatziki (thank you spell check!) and have lemon rice on the side. YUM!
Friday: Homemade Pizza… We got a pizza stone 6 months ago and while we still haven’t perfected the crust, we are getting SO close… you can’t go wrong with Friday night pizza night!
Saturday: Going out for dinner at a great local establishment.
Sunday: Mexican Lasagna. Exactly like it sounds. Take two things that you can add anything too – Mexican food and lasagna – and put them together for something that tastes amazing. Bonus- it is perfect for Monday lunch leftovers in case you haven’t gotten your butt in gear for next week yet.
Well, I hope you enjoy!
P.S. My “A bit of Work” equals about 20 minutes…
