Good morning and happy Monday! If you’re like me, the early morning routine isn’t fun and at the beginning of the week, it’s even more hectic. That’s why I spend time every Sunday to make a meal plan and grocery list. Here’s what I’m making this week.
Drama of the week
I was in a weird mood when I made my meal plan this week. I was kind of tired and the weather outside my window was just… gray. Bleh. I didn’t see my shadow on Groundhog Day. Doesn’t that mean spring can come early, at least at my house?
Actually, I think I might even be okay with winter if the weather will just stay the same for a few days in a row. Yo-yoing between nearly freezing and 80+ degrees is making me a little crazier than usual.
It’s more of the same this week, so my menu below includes warm comfort foods for the cold days and grilling and salads for the warm ones.
Here’s what we’re eating this week:
Monday – chicken caesar pasta salad
This is a family favorite. There are tons of recipes out there, but it’s about time I write my own version to share here.
Tuesday – Mexican chopped tuna salad wraps
My son asked for tuna, “but not what you always make” so here we go.
Wednesday – slow cooker beef stew
I will just toss some stew beef, vegetables, and broth into the slow cooker in the morning.
Thursday – Zuppa Toscana
Baby spinach instead of kale. I might swap the coconut milk for regular milk; I know that defeats the point of Whole30.
Friday – Irish skillet dinner
Hubby’s request. He loves cabbage.
Saturday – hamburgers on the grill
Warm weather time in the backyard. I’m not sure what sides I will add.
Sunday – beef and bean burritos
Quick and easy. Make up a pan of Tex-Mex taco meat. Add a can of refried beans and some grated cheese. Wrap it up in tortillas.
Cheers! Linking up at Menu Plan Monday.
