Meal Plan With Me: 1.10.21
Happy weekend friends! Almost every Sunday, I love to start my day with a cozy cup of coffee, curled up on the couch while I plan out meals for the week. I meal plan (at least dinners) pretty religiously. When I don’t take the time to plan out meals for the week, I feel off balance and totally out of whack. Meal planning helps to seamlessly endure the week and also gives us meals to actually look forward to.
I have to add that I love to cook, so meal planning and finding new recipes is fun for me. That’s totally okay if cooking isn’t exactly your thing, but you can certainly hash out a quick plan that will still keep you organized for the week!
Since I already plan every week, I figured I would start sharing my weekly meal plans with you too! I am currently living with my parents, so I cook for five of us. These meals will typically be enough for five, but tailor that to however many you are cooking for by halving or doubling the recipes.
Hope you enjoy this new series of Meal Plan with Me! Enjoy!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup from Budget Bytes.
Chicken Sausage and Mushroom Penne from Delish
Notes: I’ll be using a spicy chicken sausage, but feel free to use pork or even just ground chicken/turkey/beef and season accordingly. Pro tip: Instead of heavy cream in the recipe, I'll top it off with a spoonful of ricotta for a satisfying and higher protein addition.
Shrimp Stir-Fry with Honey Sriracha Stir-Fry Sauce from Sweet Pea and Saffron.
Note: Make this sauce in a larger batch to have on hand for future recipes.
Easy Oven Baked Tilapia and Tomatoes with Brown Rice and Salad from Budget Bytes.
Notes: I LOVE Budget Bytes! Her recipes are so simple and super affordable with ingredients you can get from just about any grocery store (including Aldi).
I saw this recipe on Instagram this week and have not been able to stop thinking about it! I'll whip these up for a morning pick-me-up throughout this long work week ahead. So excited for these Dark Chocolate-Dipped Clementines!
We tend to eat out, make homemade pizza, or plan on leftovers for weekend dinners so I don’t plan those out to allow for the flexibility.
