weekly meal plan (9.8.14)

every saturday morning i sit down and make a weekly meal plan - just like my momma used to do. i always wonder what i had made in previous weeks, so i thought it would be a nice record (oh, and maybe some interest to my readers - if there are any?!? - ha) to post these on a semi-regular basis. 

so here is the list that gets stuck on the front of my fridge. excuse the typos and the acronymns. i have decoded things below and included links of the recipes in case you want to make them too!

meal plan, decoded.

saturday: oh she glows maple-cinnamon apple pear baked oatmeal (p. 39 of her cookbook; made this several times before, delicious) + baked eggs on a bed of roasted tomatoes (new to me recipe) + fruit 

sunday: crockpot bbq beer chicken made into sandwiches (apparently i can't spell this word) + un-fried pickles (i saw these on Trisha Yearwood's cooking show last weekend and can't stop thinking about them so i planned this entire dinner around these pickles. i hope they are good!) + kale slaw with red cabbage and carrots (new to me recipe)

monday: roasted cauliflower and chickpeas in orange cumin dressing (make all the time, fabulous) + couscous (Near East box) + chicken (for the hubby)

tuesday: green bean delight + leftovers or pesto pasta (for the hubby)

wednesday: kale, black bean, and avocado burrito bowls + spicy roasted cauliflower (made both before, yum)

thursday: leftover pulled chicken (from sunday) on baked sweet potatoes + roasted broccoli

friday: kale, mushroom, and ricotta calzones (one of the hubby's favorites) + simple green salad

  1. I realized that my grocery list never has the veggies. What a simple change to make. Bet it increases consumption!
