This past week was rough for me physically so I ended up getting prepared food/ordering in more than I had hoped and sadly didn’t follow every night of my plan. At first, I was beating myself up over it but then Anel reminded me that I’m growing a human and it’s ok to not want to cook every day right now. Such a wise man, that one.
This is my third of four meal plans I’m sharing but would love to know from anyone who is joining me how it’s been going. Are you into it? Are the recipes what you’re looking for? Anything else you’d like to see?
I’m thinking of doing these posts monthly going forward if you’re liking them!
Extra: As a little something extra this week, for snacks and breakfasts, try making this power butter that only takes a few minutes but is packed with nutrients. It’s great for kiddos too.
Monday Night- 20-minute sweet potato skillet: This skillet recipe is one of Anel’s favorite things I make… Little does he know it takes pretty much zero effort on my part. And I love it too! It’s great for after a long day of work when you want something home-cooked but don’t feel like working too hard.
Tuesday Night- Breakfast for dinner: I have this thing for Shakshuka and keep coming back to this (vegetarian!) Shakshuka recipe time and time again. It is as good for dinner as it is for Sunday brunch. You can see it pictured above too.
Wednesday Night- Order in: Usually we order in on Thursdays but my dad will be visiting so I want to cook for him when he’s here. So we’ll be ordering in on Wednesday. If that doesn’t fit with your flow, swap Wednesday and Thursday’s plan this week.
Thursday Night- Hillstone’s steak salad: My dad is coming to see us for the night so I’m going to make him one of my favorite restaurant dishes ever, Hillstone’s steak salad. It’s a bit labor-intensive but I promise it’s so worth it. For a vegetarian option, swap in tofu for the steak.
Friday Night- Pizza night: Pizza nights are always the best nights!
Saturday Night- Out of town: We’re taking Amalia on a little adventure out of town for a weekend getaway so no plan for Saturday.
Sunday Night- Valentine’s Day: We’ll still be out of town, so we’ll probably pick something up from a restaurant nearby where we’re staying.
Have a great weekend!
