Happy Friday! It’s going to be a gloomy+rainy weekend over here! I am not mad about it though, my garden needs it! ICYMI-I explain how I shop and plan out our meals for the week on this post. What we’re eating this week are some easy dinner ideas I recycled from earlier in the year. That is one reason I love my go-to dedicated grocery/meal notebook, it’s easy to go back and get some ideas!
Greek salad and leftover green lentil pasta from last week because we ended up eating dinner with TEB’s mom one night!
Bowls: crockpot honey mustard chicken on top of cauli rice with sautéed zucchini and squash
Spaghetti made with spaghetti squash, marinara, and roasted chickpeas plus a salad. Always greens!
I will make a fresh salad both nights because that is quick!
Tacos topped with all the veggies and guacamole+salsa. I will typically do a taco salad and make TEB siete tortillas
I will make fresh guacamole each night!
Leftover chicken bowls. Queen of bowls over here.
Leftover spaghetti squash and salad
Leftover tacos and guacamole
If I happen to not feel like cooking a full meal on Monday or Tuesday, I will have leftovers sooner vs. later. I always adjust if needed. Having this planned out before I go to the grocery or ordering instacart helps make sure I don’t forget anything! Plus, I am sure it helps our budget not buying tons of random stuff. Basically, I’m saving money, right?!
Pro tip: throw your spaghetti squash in the crockpot! It is the EASIEST way to cook it! Pierce it with a knife all over and put the whole thing in the crock pot with an inch of water. When it’s done, you can cut it in half an use tongs to scoop out the inside.
Bowls: You can make almost anything into a bowl. Get creative, and don’t be scared to mix things up!
Productive Sunday: I love using the crockpot when I can. We often have a lot of other things going down on Sunday before the week starts, so the crockpot is an easy way to cook lots of different things!
