Meal Plan – Week of August 16

No new recipes this week. I’m sticking to some tried and true meals that are quick, easy, and yummy!



  • Egg-in-a-hole Sandwiches, Fruit

You can find the inspiration for these sandwiches here.

  • Avocado Toast, Fruit

I’m going to use the egg-in-a-hole sandwich inspiration and make avocado toast with some tomatoes from my little garden.


  • Juicy Italian Meatballs, Zoodles, Salad

I made these last week and they were so good that I’m making them again this week and I’m perfecting my version of the original recipe (which you can fine here).

  • Tacos

Nothing fancy – just ordinary tacos with taco seasoning, hard taco shells, and ALL the toppings!

  • Pistachio Crusted Tilapia, Salad

I’m working on an air-fryer version of this recipe. You can find the original here.

  • Air Fried Pork Chops, Roasted Veggies

This is a tried and true meal that’s ready in about 30 minutes! You can find the recipe for the pork chops here and the base recipe that I used for the veggies here.

Blueberry Protein Smoothie

This smoothie has been called the Wakey Monkey Smoothie in my recent meals. That’s its original name because it’s from a little café in Saluda, North Carolina called Wakey Monkey Café. This is my copycat version of the smoothie because I loved it so much, I had to recreate it. My version is a little bit different than the original version but it’s still an amazing smoothie that has been on repeat in my meal plans.

Meal Plan: Week 11

I’ve decided to give myself a little cooking challenge/goal/inspiration. I’m going to cook my way through The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook. This little challenge/goal/inspiration makes my heart so happy! You see, I love Disney and had to cancel a Disney trip this past summer and I need some Disney in my life so I’m going to make it my house. Each week, I’ll cook at least one recipe from the cookbook and sometimes, like with this week, they’ll be part of my meal plan for the week.


  • Smoothies.
  • Waffle with Peanut Butter and Banana.



  • Corn Dog Nuggets (from the Disney cookbook). Salad.
  • Chicken Tawook Quinoa Bowls.
  • Pork Belly Skewers (from the Disney cookbook). Grilled Veggies.
  • BLT. Fruit.


  • Fig Bars.
  • Veggies & Dip.

I’m also planning to make The Grey Stuff and Dole Whips from the Disney cookbook. I’ll be sharing my adventures over on instagram and may even blog about them.
