Happy Monday all! Last week’s meal prep and weekly dinner menu was a success and super helpful with my crazy schedule. I felt so much more relaxed on the evenings I worked late, knowing dinner was already prepared, or at least partially prepared. I definitely want to stay on track with my meal planning, so yesterday morning, I wrote out my dinner menu for the week, paying extra attention to the meals I chose for our late nights. Planning ahead always makes grocery shopping trips more efficient. Rather than wandering around trying to think about what I should I grab, I have a list set with the ingredients I need for each dinner.
I did a mini meal-prep yesterday evening as well…hard boiled some eggs, pre-cooked quinoa, and sliced up some veggies for us to add into salads and have as snacks. Simple, quick prepping that makes a huge difference!
Here’s the dinner menu for the week:
- Monday: honey mustard chicken with sweet potatoes- this is on repeat from last week, but I want to share the marinade recipe soon, so I’m testing it out again
- Tuesday: Taco bowls (seasoned organic grass fed beef over romaine with quinoa, peppers, tomatoes, avocado, and salsa)
- Wednesday: slow cooker lemon-garlic chicken thighs with potatoes- using this recipe and will make my own modifications as needed
- Thursday: BBQ salmon or salmon burgers (super fast to cook up)
- Friday: TBD
Anything new and fun on your weekly dinner menu?
Have an awesome rest of your day 🙂
