Meal Plan Monday: Sept 9-15

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? The hubs and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary on Friday with a very sick baby. Poor G was miserable all weekend long, but appears to be mostly back in good spirits now. Hopefully we’ll go out to dinner this coming weekend instead.

Today marks the first day of the first full week of school. Last week was all about establishing routines, procedures, and expectations. This week I’m adding in more academics, while still practicing what we’ve established. It is mentally exhausting! Hopefully we’ll get in our grove soon so I can start attacking my curriculum. I have a lot to pack in this year!

I’m happy to be participating in Racheal and Deneene’s meal plan link up again. Being organized at school is something I excel at. I’m trying to bring my structured work-self home a bit, and be better about meal planning. Thanks for helping me be accountable ladies!

Running with Racheal

* (L) indicates leftovers

** (F) indicates a freezer meal (read my method here)

Monday – black bean burgers with zucchini chips

Tuesday – (L) taco Tuesday with Sunday’s wild card menu item: pot roast tacos with horseradish sour cream. I added garlic, cilanto & lime juice to the horseradish sour cream and was quite pleased with the results.

Wednesday – (F) Mustard lime chicken with red wine pasta and zucchini

Thursday – (F) paleo mini meatloaves and quinoa with roasted zucchini and carrots

Friday – (L) pot roast burrito bowls over zucchini cilantro lime rice

Saturday – dinner out for our belated celebration

Sunday – wild card

Workouts will be walking, elliptical, and painting. I did not meet my 12 mile goal last week (only clocked 6), which I’m okay with. The first week was too tiring and overwhelming to stress about such things. I’m going to be more on top of things this week though!

Oh, and if you have a moment, pop by my friend Jill’s blog - The Pinspired Mama. She just started it, and it looks great! I’m going to add some of her recipes into next weeks meal plan for sure!

What should I make this weekend for my wild card menu item? Something in the crock pot would be awesome since we’ll be painting all day.

  1. Thanks so much for the lovely comments and the link to my blog, Leila! I’m happy to hear that G is feeling better! For your wild card meal, I’ve got a super simple shredded bbq chicken sandwich that can be made in the crockpot and goes great with the Torta sandwich rolls that you mentioned were on sale at Costco :) Good luck painting!!

  2. I’m loving all of the zucchini you’re including. It’s becoming one of my favorites, too! I love that pic. Everything looks beautiful…you guys, the church, the lighting. Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for participating in the link up again! Hope you get your 12 miles in this week!
