Weekly Meal Plan

Meal planning is going well, so far! We had some yummy meals this week!

Monday- I made Beagle Bagel chicken salad! This is a restaurant from Jackson that I miss so much! This recipe tastes so close to it! I served it with crackers and fruit.
Definitely not the best picture! But this stuff is AMAZING!

This was pretty good. I definitely wouldn't rate it as my favorite, but it was easy and filling so it's likely I'll make it again. I served it on top of brown rice and I also added more pineapples.

This was the hit of the week! I've heard everyone talk about the full fat version of this recipe, so I was excited to try this lighter version. It was delicious! Trey and I both loved it. Plus, it made enough for leftovers, too, which I wasn't anticipating!

Thursday- Leftover Spicy Sausage Pasta
This was even good as a leftover!

Friday- Pizza night

Saturday-We typically go out on Saturdays, but it was cold and rainy so we stayed home. I made nachos.

I haven't been able to find gnocchi in forever, so I was glad to have this. Easy, yummy, and filling!

Weekly Meal Plan

Monday- We ate out since it was a holiday!

These turned out so yummy! I used pita pockets and this cucumber dill dip for the sauce. I served it with a Greek salad!
 Wednesday- I had planned to make Doritos Taco Salads, but I didn't have enough lettuce. So, I improvised and just kind of made something up! It ended up being pretty good and was filling. 

I cooked ground beef and added black beans and a jar of salsa. I layered Doritos on the bottom of the casserole dish. Then, I added the meat mixtures. Topped with shredded cheese and then more crushed Doritos. Bake for about 20 minutes. I served it with brown rice, so it ended up being kind of like a burrito bowl.
 Thursday- I made Crockpot Broccoli Cheddar Soup. This was pretty good! It was my first time making this. I did have to add about 1/2 cup of flour at the end to thicken it up a bit. I didn't serve anything with this and I think if I made it again I would make a panini or baked potato with it!
Friday-Like usual, was pizza night! Again, we had Papa Murphy's deLite pizza.

Saturday- We love going out to eat on Saturdays!

Weekly Meal Plan

I'm going to try to start posting the meals we've eaten each week in an effort to help me with meal planning! So, here's what we ate last week!

This was SOOO good! Definitely will make this again! We topped it with sour cream, cheese, and a few Fritos! It made great leftovers, too!


Wednesday- I had Bunco! So, no cooking for me!

Thursday- Shrimp and Grits
This has been a new dish that I've made the last two weeks and it's delicious and easy!
I just use the Five Minute grits. I cook them in the microwave and when they are finished I add a tablespoon of butter and 1 cup of cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted and combined. Then, I use frozen precooked shrimp that I've thawed. I heat up a little butter and garlic in the skillet on medium. Then, I toss the shrimp for a bit. Not too long, since they're already cooked. Then, top the grits with the shrimp! That's it! It's so yummy!

Friday- Pretty much always pizza night! Lately, we've been getting Papa Murphy's deLite cheese pizza because it's so much healthier and it's really yummy!

Saturday- Out

I made chocolate chip banana muffins, omelets, and bacon.

 I even had a cute sous chef for these! :)

I try to use the same pattern each week. This makes planning a lot easier!

Monday-Thursday: cook, leftovers at least one day
Friday- Pizza
Saturday- out
Sunday- some type of breakfast for dinner

Chicken Stuffed Peppers

3 bell peppers
2 cups brown rice, cooked
3 chicken breasts, shredded (I usually cook these in the crockpot for about 3 hours. Cover with water and sprinkle a little dry Lipton French Onion mix on top.)
1/2 jar of spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup diced onions (I use frozen.)
Shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 425.
Slice bell peppers in half, length wise. Remove seeds and membranes. Lay each half in casserole dish. In skillet, add tbs olive oil. Add shredded chicken, diced onion, rice, and spaghetti sauce to skillet. Combine and let cook just for a few minutes. Sometimes, I add a little cheese to the mixture here, too! Scoop mixture into bell peppers. Top with cheese. Bake for about 40-60 minutes or until bell peppers are tender.

These are a weekly staple at our house!
