Meal Plan Monday

What's cooking this week?




Re: Meal Plan Monday


  • This is the dry erase board that lives on my fridge where I try to plan out what I'm eating for the week. There is no guarantee I will stick to the plan, but it helps me stay organized and helps me avoid browsing All the Food. DH is mostly vegetarian (occasionally eats fish and hunted game) so most dinners are veggie-friendly. I'm excited to go out Friday night!  We live in VT so it's not real Mexican but it will still be yummy :p

  • We have been gradually going vegan so I’ve made some chorizo potato scramble, chole, potato and chick pea coconut curry, vegan baked ziti and things of that nature. We watched a really compelling documentary on vegan athletes a couple months ago on Netflix. My husbands triglycerides have already decreased by 60 points!

  • i never plan out breakfast/lunch/snacks as i just try to keep things on hand i know ill eat (and those im forcing myself to), so crackers, apples & peanut butter, carrots, and cantaloupe.

    For dinners this week:
    Tonight-salmon, broccolini
    Tomorrow-mixed roasted veggie kebabs
    Wednesday-chicken, sweet potatoes, probably some leftover roasted veggies
    thats as far as ive gotten :smiley:

  • We usually pre-cook 2 meals on Sundays and it helps us a lot during the week. Yesterday we made some vegetarian patties with sweet potato fries and an asian inspired shrimp casserole

    Making a big pot of Taiwanese minced pork with hard boiled eggs and firm tofu to go over rice. Plus stir fried bok choy. Should last us most of the week. It's a super easy comfort food to make if you can get the right ingredients from a chinese supermarket. If anyone wants a recipe, let me know!

  • Leftover turkey = turkey tom kha gai soup.
    Current pregnancy -
    First BFP on 10/31/19.  Estimated due date 7/8/20 (pending sonogram confirmation on 12/6/19).

    Previous loss - 
    Ultrasound at 10w on 1/8/14 showed no heartbeat and stopped growth at 7w5d.  Actual miscarriage on 1/19/14.
  • I made a big pot of Moroccan Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup that I will be eating for lunch most days this week.  Tonight I'm making a veggie stir-fry and using my air fryer to make crispy tofu to go with it. 
  • @Skk1977 that all sounds super good! I tried to go vegan a while ago but then found out I have celiacs, so needed to ease up on the restrictions for my sanity. But I still struggle with what to make and some of those ideas sound perfect - since I stayed vegetarian, so chickpeas and sweet potatoes are big staples now. 

    But im terrible at meal planning and basically never do it, so typically do a lot of lurking in this thread.

  • Lazy on the meal planning these days but we have a weekly Blue Apron subscription we enjoy. I tend to just make a big batch of soup or a whole grain dish that keeps well for lunches during the week. But having the Blue Apron box for 3 dinners a week helps to not have to plan much. On the non-Blue apron nights we tend to do a lot of roast veggies plus sausage nights. I love all the Trader Joe’s chicken sausage flavors. We do a lot of breakfast for dinner, too.
  • @rachelredhead that reminds me I have some Trader Joe's chicken sausage in my fridge I need to cook up.
    Current pregnancy -
    First BFP on 10/31/19.  Estimated due date 7/8/20 (pending sonogram confirmation on 12/6/19).

  • So far this week we have made a turkey/stuffing/gravy, turkey chili, beef/bean/beet burritos, turkey tom kha gai soup, and California rolls.  A turkey casserole will probably be happening soon.
