Meal Planning Monday, September 9th

Happy Monday friends!  I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!  Mine was a bit busy, but it was good.  I got to enjoy some quiet time, but I got some good meal prepping done.  While my weigh in didn't go quite as planned, I am so seriously planning on a GREAT week!   As they say, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  

With that being said, I was struggling to eat the breakfast casserole by the end of the week.  This week, I made two different breakfast items to give me some options.  I made a ham, egg and cheese breakfast casserole, some cauliflower "hash browns" and a pancake bake.  I also made a pancake bake for my DD. 

Honestly, because I struggle having the same thing for days on end, (really how do people do that??) I try to make different things that I can have on different days.  As last week was so crazy and I didn't eat everything I prepped, I still have some leftovers for this week.  So I will use that up and then I am thinking I will make a philly cheesesteak sort of thing that I can serve over cabbage to make it lower in carb.  

Dinners, as we didn't have every meal we planned last week.  After our Tuesday night at the hospitals and then Thursday's nuclear stress test, it was just a rough week.  

Last week's meals were:

Monday: Fruit Smoothie
Tuesday: Peanut Butter and Cheese Crackers at the hospital.
Wednesday: Frozen Pizza from Walmart
Thursday: Burritos, I made mine a "burrito bowl" with lettuce and the fixings I put out for the burritos.
Friday: Fish and veggies
Saturday: Burgers, mac and cheese and Ranch Style Beans
Sunday: Fend for yourself

This week: 

Cheesy Cauliflower Rice with broccoli., probably with fish.
Probably the green bean fettuccine with the alfredo sauce later in the week.
One night we will be going out to dinner for my sweet husband's birthday.
We may do a salad night or a sandwich night.

I feel pretty positive about the week and being prepared.  I want to start getting my meal plan in place by Friday, so I can grocery shop and then cook on Saturday.  Goals, right?  It's all about making sure that I can take care of me and my family!  Have a blessed day!


  1. Good job on planning for this week! You have this!!

    I usually have my meal plan idea in place by Wednesday...Thursday at the latest. Them Thursday or Friday I make my grocery list (verifying what I already have and what I need) and then I shop on Saturday. (We only shop every two weeks!)
