I’m going to be totally honest with you all…I’m kinda shocked that I’m still going strong with these weekly meal plans.
Given my track record, I’ve never been super great at sticking with the meal planning thing; it’s typically come and gone in waves. But I’ll tell ya, things are really going well the past few weeks, and it’s pretty surprising just how much easier it makes our weeks! Less stress, less running around, easier/quicker grocery shopping…dare I say, I think I’m becoming a new woman?!
But anywho…here’s a look at what we had last week. Maybe you’ll find some inspiration for the week ahead!
Sunday: We snacked on some Superbowl appetizers but, honestly, I can’t even remember what they all were at this point.
Monday: Crispy Brown Butter Gnocchi w/ Meyer Lemon and Brussels Sprouts
This was our final Blue Apron meal from last week (recipe HERE) and it was so good. Definitely one I’d attempt to create on my own!
Tuesday: Crockpot Shredded Beef Enchiladas with brussels sprouts
The enchiladas were good, and super convenient to be able to pull from the freezer (took them out to thaw 24 hours ahead) but we definitely agreed that they tasted better when we made them fresh the first time.
That soup + bread combo is a HUGE winner in our house!
Thursday: Grilled chicken and avocado salads with more Cheesy Italian Quick Bread
We actually waited to eat that meal until Lucas was in bed so it was enjoyed back at our old favorite spot…the coffee table.
Friday: Takeout from DeFazio’s! We ordered a big house salad and their Chicken and Red Roasted Peppers Pizza with some added sautéed spinach. Oh. My. God. so good.
(and that’s definitely a scene that’s taken place in our house before!)
Saturday: We were *this close* to getting lazy and ordering more takeout, but we decided to use some of what we had and ended up making out awesome with some side salads and a batch of Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Spinach Quesadillas.
I almost forgot about just how good those things are!
Alright, let’s hear it…what do you guys have on the menu for the week ahead? Anything exciting??
