Weekly Meal Plan

Leave a Comment

Weekly meal planning in full effect this Sunday.  I have already meal planned and grocery shopped.  I am spending this afternoon getting organized and doing some prep to make the week easier.

Monday- Chicken and Wild Rice Soup (chicken and rice for the kids) ceasar Salad
Tuesday- Turkey Tacos with black beans and quinoa (taco bowl for me with lettuce, tomato and avocado)
Wednesday- Veggie Stir Fry with rice and quinoa
Thursday- Left overs
Friday- Homemade pizza

Seriously this theme days plan has made my life so much easier.  We are still getting lots of variety and I am streamlining planning.  I am hopeful that when summer comes we can do lots of grilling and make extra each night so we can cook less and eat more left overs.

What are you guys having this week??


Life's about more

Just a thought I had.  Ed Sheeran has a new song out right now called, "What do I know"  If you haven't heard it yet, check it out on You Tube.  It is one of those songs that just makes you think, reevaluate how you take on life.

In one particular part he says

Just remember life is more than fitting' in your jeans
It's love and understanding, positivity

It hits close to home for me. I think so much about working out, what I am eating and feeling bad when I am having one of those days when things just don't fit the way I want them to.  And when I am having those days I know it changes my attitude and my focus for the day.
But positivity is the way to go.  Love and understanding for others and for ourselves.  Especially for our kids, for Evelyn in particular.  Life is tough, full of things we don't want to do but staying positive will always make it better.

Still sticking with the easy weekly themes and it has been going great.  Easy to plan and we have still had lots of variety with our meals.
Mike is traveling this week so a few meals might be skipped and replaced by breakfast for dinner or maybe going out to eat.
I grocery shopped today though so I am prepared.

Monday- Tomato Basil Soup with grilled cheese
Tuesday- friends over for a taco bar.  Turkey taco meat, beans, quinoa, lettuce, tomato, cheese, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and rice.  Cut up fruit for a side
Wednesday- Cajun pasta with caesar salad
Thursday- Left overs
Friday- Pizza and steamed broccoli

Happy meal planning everyone!
