I took a rather informal poll (on Facebook and Twitter) and it turns out people might actually be interested in taking a look at our weekly meal plans…who knew?
So here is the deal, on Mondays I will plan for the week. I’ll try and link up recipes when I have them and you can check out my Pinterest boards for more ideas and inspiration.
Breakfasts: We have a variety of breakfast items kicking around the house and pick and choose as we go. This week we have yogurt, cereal, and english muffins.
Lunches: I typically pack our lunches the night before. Most of the time it is leftovers from dinners but some of our other favorites include, english muffin pizzas, quesadillas, crackers and hummus, and sandwiches.
Dinners: I plan these out one for each night. Typically we’ll have a “breakfast for dinner” night once a week and at least one “meatless meal”. I try to stick to traditional real food (no food dyes, artificial coloring, flavoring, or sweeteners) I also try to make as much from scratch as possible, it is cheaper that way and I can control the type and source of my ingredients.
Note: Tilly eats the same things we do because 1. I don’t want to make extra work for myself and 2. I want her to be exposed to lots of different flavors and textures. I just make sure things are cut into pieces she can handle.
Monday: Crispy Southwestern Chicken wraps using whole wheat tortillas and brown rice
Tuesday: Crock pot pulled pork sandwiches and sweet potato fries
Wednesday: Pasta and sauce (keeping it simple)
Thursday: Pork fried rice using leftover pork from Tuesday, I throw in whatever veggies I have kicking around
Friday: We usually grab sandwiches before heading to Fenways “puppy play date” with Randy the bulldog. We visit with friends, watch hockey (go Bruins!) and Fenway and Randy chase each other around the house. Everyone is happy.
Saturday: Pancakes, sausage, and apple sauce
Sunday: Chicken and veggie noodle soup that I froze from a couple weeks ago and dinner rolls
