Normally I like to plan my menu on Wednesday and then do grocery shopping on Thursday. This week is a little off though, so I'm playing catch-up and planning today. I have some meals on hand that I think will get us through and hopefully I can just do a little grocery shopping to fill in where needed.
taco salads - I am taking lettuce and taco toppings up to a friend who just had a baby. I'll make double the ingredients and when Sophie and I get home from our errand of love we will have the same meal we just delivered.
chicken sausage with bell peppers and onions (in a bowl - no bun), cheese cubes on the side
turkey bacon, steamed broccoli, cottage cheese
chicken caesar salad - I have been cooking up chicken tenders with lemon juice and rosemary for our salads. It just adds a nice little zip.
chili night with our new community group through church (we are trying it out for the first time - excited/whoa - new thing)
basil pesto tilapia (from Costco), steamed edamame, string cheese
peanut chicken with sprouts - I put together this collection of Thai-ish veggies with chicken and it's one of my favorites. It's usually chicken, carrots, cabbage, bean sprouts, purple onion, and then a peanut sauce. I like the one from Trader Joe's - better than I liked the one from Pampered Chef. I found a couple of recipes, so I'll try making my own soon.
Feel free to ask any questions about the meals. Most of them are really as simple as they look - like Monday is really turkey bacon in the oven, broccoli in the steamer and 1/4 C cottage cheese. Simple, but filling and tasty. I'd love to see your meal plan for the week in the comments.
