Happy Monday! This is the first meal weekly meal plan of 2017. If you enjoy my meal plan posts, you have 59 previous weeks of meal plans you can search to help inspire you in your meal planning! Here is a look at what was on our meal plan last week:
Sunday: My husband made fish tacos with spicy coleslaw which he served with cilantro rice and homemade guacamole! I love guacamole….and homemade? Yum!!
Monday: I normally do the weekly grocery shopping Monday. Since it was a holiday, I didn’t want to battle the crowds. So, we made some fried rice and dumplings (that I had in the freezer from HMart).
Tuesday: I made Cheesy Turkey Tortilla Soup from How Sweet It Is. I had been sick the week of Christmas and hadn’t cooked in forever. I jumped back into the cooking game by making this soup. It was a perfect meal for the chilly night we had it and a great way to use up some of the leftover turkey from Christmas. I had never made tortilla soup prior to this and I can’t believe what I’ve been missing! This was so good and even the kids loved it!
Wednesday: I made an Asian Meatloaf (recipe to come soon!) with Asian Potatoes and string beans. The meatloaf was really tasty! I realize that in addition to the prep, meatloaf takes forever to cook (like an hour!). So, not a quick and easy weeknight meal. However, I think making mini meatloaves in muffin tins or burgers would be great too.
Thursday: I made The Pioneer Woman’s Turkey Tetrazzini. This dish used up the rest of the leftover turkey! Woo-hoo! It took awhile to prep and cook but I did it all in the afternoon. Since Thursday is our busy night we were able to reheat it and eat in between piano lessons and basketball practice. This makes a lot and provided dinner and several lunches for the rest of the week. I’ve made tetrazzini before, but this one was different with the addition of olives and bacon. The kids weren’t big fans of this dish though, so I likely won’t be making it again.
Friday: We had our usual homemade pizza. However, this week we had bacon and olive pizzas to use up leftover ingredients we had from other meals this week.
