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!

BREAKFASTS

LUNCHES

  • 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.

DINNERS

  • 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.

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.

BREAKFASTS

  • Smoothies.
  • Waffle with Peanut Butter and Banana.

LUNCHES

DINNERS

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

SNACKS

  • 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.


Meal Plan: Week 7

If you’ve been watching the news, then you know that where I live (Fort Worth, Texas) is in quite the situation right now. We are in a winter storm that is not normal for Texas. There is snow everywhere. The river is iced over and snow covered. The wind chill has been -20 at times. It’s a struggle to keep my old house warm. It’s my personal mission to keep the pipes from freezing (the cold water to the kitchen sink froze briefly but I got that taken care of with a hair dryer dropped through a hole in the floor where the pipes come in). Needless, to say, meal planning this week has been a bit different. The goal is to use what we have so here’s what I’m creating from what we have.

BREAKFAST

  • Yogurt & granola (still have some granola and yogurt from last week’s meal plan)
  • Bagels (bagels have been in the freezer so gonna use them up)
  • Egg scrambles (I always have eggs…one time, I let myself run out of eggs and it was not a pleasant experience)

LUNCH

  • Leftover chili (we made a batch of chili and plan on eating it all) – chili mac & cheese (mac & cheese is leftovers); chili potatoes; chili
  • Charcuterie boards (I have a bunch of random items that can be used to turn create charcuterie boards)

DINNER

  • Meatballs with pasta (there’s pasta in the pantry and ground bison in the freezer)
  • Burrito bowls (I’ve got some cod in the freezer and then there’s black beans and rice in the pantry; pair this with some salsa and ta-da, you’ve got a burrito bowl)
  • Breakfast for dinner (see comment above about eggs)
  • Grilled cheese & fruit (there’s some fruit around here that needs to be eaten; there’s some frozen bread if I run out of unfrozen bread and I always have cheese)
