Weekly Meal Plan

Normally I make the meal plan and we grocery shop over the weekend, but with the long weekend everything got shifted a bit.  I typically try and make a plan that incorporates the sales for that week and if I’m using only a small portion of a something, I try and make something later in the week that would use the rest of it.

We’re trying 2 new recipes this week!  Zucchini Boats we’ve had before, but summer squashes and italian sausage were on sale this week so it seemed like the perfect thing. Other things on sale included cherry tomatoes, fresh corn, frozen shrimp, red peppers and avocado.

On the menu for us

Tuesday: Grilled Salmon and Yellow Squash with Red Pepper Sauce

Wednesday: Out for sushi for a friend’s last day of her old job

Thursday: Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad

Friday: Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Saturday: Spicy Black Bean Burgers and Corn

The black bean burgers are a new to me item that my sister recommended.  I figure we’ll have some leftover tomatoes and avocado to create a fresh salsa of sorts to top them with.

Monday Meal Planning

Kitchen

Being gone for a week and eating out the whole time sure does make you crave some meals that you cook yourself.  Here’s what’s on our menu this week:

Dinners

Moroccan Meatballs (with beef instead of lamb) and my first attempt at cauliflower rice.

Homemade pizza

Chicken in indian simmer sauce with rice

Ravioli with marinara sauce

After seeing those meatballs on Rachel’s menu plan for the past few weeks I figured this recipe had to be a hit.  The other things make regular appearances on our menu.  We typically buy the jar of Patak’s simmer sauce, it is the one with the purple label and add in some vegetables.

Lunches

Leftovers

And probably a lunch out at the deli down the road

Breakfasts

Green Smoothies

Fruit and Yogurt

So much fruit on sale at the grocery store lately.  I’ve got cantalope, blueberries and some watermelon to eat this week.

I’m leaving the weekend open at this point in anticipation of some cookouts for Memorial Day.

I’ve been slacking on my water consumption lately.  I’m setting myself a goal of drinking 2-3 of my 750ml camelback water bottle which will give me a 50-75 oz total.
