Hello Monday! Not so happy to see you. We were spoiled with a three day weekend after a snow day on Friday! But, back to the grind we go. We have to get through this week and then have a week off for February break! You can read more about how we meal plan if you are new to the process and want some tips. Here’s a look at what was on our meal plan last week:
Saturday – I was out during the day so the husband stuck a chuck roast in the slow cooker and we had the beef, mashed potatoes and veggies.
Sunday – My son had a birthday party in the evening, which my husband took him to. While they were eating pizza, my daughter and I had Five Guys cheeseburgers and fries!
Monday – We had Turkey and Rice Skillet from Very Culinary (which is now Belly Full). This is a quick one pot meal. We thought it lacked a little flavor and added hot sauce to it.
Tuesday – I made Orange Beef Teriyaki Soup from Melanie Makes. I have to admit that I didn’t season the beef with cinnamon and other spices because I don’t like the taste of it on savory foods. This soup still tasted great without it. It had a nice blend of sweet and spicy flavors.
Wednesday – I made Asian Pork Meatballs over Sesame Rice Noodles from Belly Full. I substituted ground meatloaf mix for the ground pork for the meatballs. I also didn’t have rice noodles and used spaghetti instead. This was a tasty meal! Asian spaghetti and meatballs!
Thursday – We used the leftover roast in beef burritos. This is another meal where there’s no real recipe, we just add some cooked rice, beans, cheese, salsa and sour cream and we all love it. And it’s a great way to use up leftover protein.
Friday – We had our usual homemade pizza. This is a quick and tasty weekly staple.
