Meal Plan w/o 3/18 through 3/24

I know it says to post this on Mondays, but do most people do their meal plans before the week starts?

What's on the menu this week?
We are so excited to grow our family!

Re: Meal Plan w/o 3/18 through 3/24

  • I start mine whenever I only have one meal left. Let’s be honest, sometimes the plan lasts longer than a week due to having Pizza/cereal for dinner. 

    - Moo goo gai pan 
    - Dijon chicken with mushrooms and asparagus 
    - Roasted paprika chicken with carrots and potatoes 
    - Cheeseburger quesadillas 
    - Pan fried steak with green beans and mashed sweet potatoes

  • I go back and forth with having meal plans and just winging it. 

    -Burgers/veggie burgers and chips
    -Leftover black eyed pea soup/bread 
    -Quesadillas and beans
    -Spaghetti and meatballs, salad
    -Something with chicken breast 
    -Something with sausage, kale, and beans

    @austenista I made black eyed pea soup with kale last night- it was my first time using our instant pot and I loved the results. I didn't have ham or bacon on hand so it was vegetarian but my meatatarian DH still had multiple helpings lol.

    @May14th2011 I used to love making quiche for dinner (DH grimaced when I called it quiche so I threw bacon in half of it and called it meat cheese egg casserole lol) but DS had an egg allergy so I stopped but he recently outgrew the allergy so I want to start again. I'd always rather bake than cook so quiche makes me happy.

  • @llamamama14 What a coincidence! I'm actually using kale this time too because I couldn't find any collard greens. I use this recipe but I leave out the bacon, switch to vegetable broth, and add some ACV for my taste.

    @austenista My recipe was similar with the instant pot I could go from dried beans to fully cooked in a half hour. Cayenne and paprika gave it a little kick, too.

  • Also, I know instant pot hits and misses were  mentioned in weekend randoms but if anyone has any recipe links for favorites please post!

  • I typically make my menu up Friday and Saturday, So that I can shop and prep on Sunday. 

    Monday: asparagus stuffed chicken (side salad for me, mac n cheese for the kids) 
    Tuesday: crustless pizza casserole w/ peppers & mushrooms (salad for me, garlic bread for family) 
    Wednesday: baked meatballs over zucchini 
    Thursday: French toast, sausage & fruit 
    Friday: taco salad 
    Saturday: left overs
  • Idk if we want a separate instant pot recipe thread but I will just include a couple of my hits in here. If anyone has had success with a mac & cheese recipe HMU.

    -Pork loin with veggies 
    -Chicken burrito rice bowls
    -Instant pot goulash

    I refuse to do any IP recipe where I have to prepare something else in another pot or on the stove. IMO the beauty of the IP is that you don't have a ton of dishes and you can do a meal in 30 mins.
