Meals: 21-28 October

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.

pizza quesadillas

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.


  1. Yes! Good stuff. All of these meals sound great. Maybe I will have to start a blog to post my reviews. :*

  2. Thanks :) I will post pics of most dinners and you are welcome to leave your comment there. We will both have to laugh the first time my pic is of a pile of cheese fries. Honesty, even in blogging, right? :*
