Meal Planning Monday, May 25, 2020

Happy Memorial Day friends!  Dinner plan for this week:

Monday: Burgers
Tuesday: Bean and Cheese Enchiladas
Wednesday: Lazy Man Lasagna and garlic bread
Thursday: Hamburger Stroganoff
Friday: Chicken and Broccoli Rice Casserole

Probably over the weekend, we'll have pizza or fish sticks, but we'll see.

Breakfasts are yet undecided.  I am toying with an idea for a new to me overnight oats recipe, so I may try that and maybe some more of the strawberry shortcake overnight oats.  Nice to have a variety.

Lunches, salads and sandwiches for me, most likely.

Hope everyone had a great week!

Our dinner plan for this week, although, as I always say, these are subject to change without notice.

Monday: Twice Baked Potatoes and salad
Tuesday: Taco Casserole
Wednesday: Lazy Man Lasagna and garlic bread
Thursday: Chicken and Broccolli Rice Casserole
Friday: Fish Sticks and Mac and Cheese and a yet unnamed veggie.

For breakfast, at least 2 days this week, I made a variation of the Birthday Cake Overnight Oats using what I had on hand.  I think I may have to adjust the recipe a little bit as it may be a little too sweet.  Most likely eggs for the rest of the week.

Lunches for me, probably salads or sandwiches.

Snacks, garlic hummus, veggies and fruit and yogurt/vanilla yogurt mix.

If you want to see me talk about it on video, you can find that here.


Cook with Me Using Trader Joe's Products Collab - Sheetpan Chicken Recipe, March 16th

Hi y'all!  Welcome to my part of the collab!  I made a sheetpan chicken and veggies topped with Everything But the Bagel Seasoning.

This is what I did:

1 pound Chicken Breast
16 oz. of Simple Truth Broccoli and Cauliflower blend (I think it's a steamable bag)
3/4 pound of potatoes.  I think it was originally a pound worth but several were bad.
1 pound of asparagus

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.  I chopped my veggies and diced my chicken into small chunks.  I sprayed my veggies with Chosen Foods Avocado Oil spray.  Then added my chicken and topped liberally with the Everything But the Bagel seasoning.  Cooked for 30 minutes.

Happy Monday friends!  I'm back to share my meal plan for this week.

Monday - Cheeseburger & Tot Casserole
Tuesday - Taco Salad
Wednesday - Lentil Chili Frito Pie
Thursday - Cod and roasted veggies
Friday - 2 Ingredient Dough Pizza

After the rough week this past week, being hit with a migraine and knocking me off my streak, it was frustrating.  Thankfully, I didn't gain a ton, slightly less than 0.5 lbs.  

So goes the plan for this week.  I'm determined to focus on the eating the zero point foods this week.  The Cheeseburger & Tot Casserole isn't super low in points, but that's part of why I'm having it earlier in the week.  However, I will have the points for that.  I feel more in control of things this week.

What is on your meal plan for this week? I'm excited to hear!  Have a great week!

Meatless Monday Collab: Meatless Lazy Man Lasagna - Feb. 17th

Image
Meatless Lazy Man Lasagna

8 oz. of Whole Wheat Penne Pasta
15 oz. of Ricotta Cheese
4 oz. Mozzarella and 4 oz. of Parm
Italian Seasoning
approximately 3 cups of Homemade Marinara Sauce that I cooked up in my slow cooker.

I mixed the Mozzarella and Parm together.

After the pasta was cooked, while it was draining, I mixed the Ricotta Cheese with some Italian Seasoning.  Then mixed the cooked noodles in with it.  Added some sauce, some of the noodle/cheese mixture, topped with the mozzarella/parm mixture then repeated.  After two layers, I put what was left of the cheese on top and cooked on 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  

I actually put mine in the freezer, but it'll be so tasty when the time comes to have it.

Hi Friends!  Hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine's Day!  Our actual Valentine's Day was pretty ordinary.  Saturday evening, we went to dinner with some other couples from our church and Sunday we headed to Painting with a Twist for a fun couple's painting.  

For now, our meal plan is as follows:

Monday: Burgers, fixings and tater tots or fries.
Tuesday: Homemade Burrito Supreme, Spanish Rice and refried beans
Wednesday: Beans and special Cornbread
Thursday: Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese
Friday: 2 Ingredient Dough Pizzas

No plans for Saturday or Sunday, but that seems to be fairly normal for me.  We have a wedding to attend on Saturday for some church friends.
