12/9/19 Weekly Meal Plan!

stemarie_1650skitchen

Holiday decorations are up, and we are in full holiday mode! That means lots of fun stuff: looking at neighborhood light displays, making holiday crafts, and of course, holiday foods!

I did a small trip to the grocery store yesterday- we’ve got produce co-op this week, so I’m waiting until Wednesday to see if we need anything else. We’ve got meat and proteins in the freezer, and I’ll be pairing them with the veggies and grains we have on hand. 

For those of you that are new to meal planning, I’ve got an easy 101 style post here with super easy tips and steps. After you get that down, here is info about batch or freezer cooking.

I’ve gotten a pretty good inventory of the pantry, freezer, and fridge done (I update it after every shopping trip), so I’m able to plan meals and use up what we’ve got with little waste. If you are looking for kitchen inventory printable, I like the kitchen inventories here. They are great printables.

You may notice a lot of plant-based meals- We are not vegetarian (well, the big kid is, but the rest of us aren’t), but I am trying to get more veggies into our diet. I do a lot of cooking from scratch- I find it easier to get veggies and fruit into recipes that I can have 100% control over.

I only post our dinner plans for the week, because our other meals are usually the same each day:

Breakfast: Coffee with 1/2 and 1/2  for me, and pancakes or something along those lines for the kids (they love the Kodiak Cakes Mix).  I also keep sandwich Ziploc bags of other frozen fruit on hand to make the kids smoothies when they request them (a few times per week). Berries, peaches, and mangos are pretty popular.

Lunches are leftovers, salads, or soups for me and Bitty. The big kid takes his lunch to school, but once in a while, I can convince him to buy his lunch.

For dinner, when we’ve got busy days (like Mondays), I’ll try and put something in the crockpot in the morning, or pull something I’ve already prepped out that can be quickly cooked. We’ve got a bunch of stuff in the freezer, as I’ve been portioning out 2-3 adult-sized entree portions from several meals a week and freezing them for later meals.

  • Monday: Butter chicken with rice, steamed veggies (we didn’t make it last week)
  • Tuesday: Pecan crusted salmon, roasted veggies (carrots, potatoes, onions, celery), brown rice
  • Wednesday:  Soup & Grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Thursday:   Kung Pao stir fry with chicken and veggies, served with rice.
  • Friday:   Breakfast for dinner: Smoothies, avocado toast with Everything but the bagel seasoning(bacon will be available as well).
  • Saturday:  Pizza time (also salad will be served)
  • Sunday:  Leftover fiesta!

I had someone ask me how we always have enough of anything for leftovers. I always cook enough of the main dish for 6-8 servings, that way we have leftovers for lunches later in the week or leftover night. And really when you make stuff like soup, it’s hard to make a batch of soup that only feeds 4 people.

Talk Back: What are you planning to cook this week?
