Meal Planning

Anyone out there plan their meals for the week/bi weekly/monthly? We do it weekly here and then I spend Friday doing the grocery shopping for the upcoming week. We typically plan Saturday-Friday because that’s what works best for our schedule. Earlier this month I picked up a great meal planner from this great little Etsy shop. What I love most about it is that the pages are perforated and you tear them out weekly but then you can also tear off your shopping list! Win/Win. She doesn’t always have them in her shop but if you follow her on Facebook she lets you know when they’ll be available.

Since moving we have spent a LOT more time in the kitchen. It’s not as easy to say “I don’t feel like cooking tonight let’s just go grab something.” There isn’t much nearby and thing we were used to in Denver (Chipotle. Jimmy Johns. Wich Which.) are either non existent or way far away to make a quick run for dinner. We’ve picked up some great new cookbooks and have had fun trying out 2 new recipes a week. The Skinny Taste cookbook has proven to be a real winner! We’ve loved everything we’ve made so far.

I’ve been trying to double some meals so we have some easy freezer options as well. We’ve run out of all of those so I’ll spend today catching up! Going to make some bolognese to throw in the freezer as well as some more soup! Thought I’d share our meal plan in case anyone needs ideas! Happy Sunday!

Sunday: Pot Roast, Cesar Salad, Sweet Potatoes

Monday: Cubano Stuffed Pork Tenderloin, Green Salad, Roasted Brussels Sprouts (I’ll roast an extra tenderloin as well that’s just got some good seasoning for leftovers)

Tuesday: Mediterranean Turkey Burgers with Greek Salad

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Taco Salads

Friday: Shrimp with Broccoli

Saturday: out!
