My Weekly Meal Plan
Last week, since it was spring break here, we ended up going on an impromptu trip with my husband while he was working. So, our meal plan went out the window! I have been trying a lot of new recipes lately, especially around kale. We have a ton of seeds planted in the garden and we just signed up for our CSA again, so we know we’ll have lots to use. This week I will share my absolute favorite way to eat kale now, garlicky kale salad – a copycat recipe from Whole Foods, you will LOVE it!!
Also, the next few weeks are kind of crazy, we have soccer practice, games and this week we start swim lessons. All of which are at dinner time, so I’ll be keeping it really easy again.
Sunday: Easter Dinner leftovers
Monday: Garlicky Kale Salad, Cajun Sweet Potatoes
Tuesday: Chicken Fajitas
* I will cook up a huge batch of grilled chicken to use in sandwiches and such for the rest of the week.
Wednesday: Greek Chicken Pita
*Using leftover chicken and grilled veggies from Tuesday night’s fajitas.
Thursday: Southwestern Burritos
Friday: Pizza Night! Homemade Pizza Dough with Homemade Pizza Sauce
*Top with whatever is left in fridge, my new favorite is fresh chopped spinach, sliced tomatoes, green olives, pepperocinis and artichokes.
What is on your weekly meal plan this week? I’d love to hear your ideas!
