Meal Planning

by Jennie on May 11, 2011

I am a pretty organized person and I feel like I am losing myself in the chaos of moving!!! Although we have all the big rooms unpacked, things aren’t as organized and functional as I would like. With being almost 7 months preggers I can’t do everything I want to do…. UNFORTUNATELY! One thing I vowed to start this week was meal planning. Before the chaos of packing and moving I was pretty scheduled with our meals and had a menu for the week of what meals I was going to prepare. This fell by the way side over the last month and we were eating out ALOT! I was TIRED of eating out and decided to use my Green Bean and Wild Tree Deliveries for some inspiration. It has felt so good to get a menu together for the week… I know, it’s the little things! SO here is my menu for the week… maybe it will give you some ideas :)

Monday: Chicken Alfredo with broccoli and tomatoes (I used the healthy alfredo from Wildtree) and just thought the combo sounded good together. IT WAS! I rarely go without a recipe so I was pretty proud of myself lol! Dessert: Strawberries & Chocolate Mousse Cake (leftovers from mother’s day. I was inspired to make this from the Wildtree chocolate mousse and it was SOOO good!)

Tuesday: Sauerkraut, Sausage and potatoes- throw all in a crock pot and cook!

Wednesday: BLT’s with sauteed veggies (inspired by the yummy tomatoes and other veggies I got with my GB delivery) Dessert: Mix in the pan chocolate cake (thanks Kim!!)

Thursday: Leftovers ( I will be gone in the eve so Steve will probably fix heat up the leftover chicken alfredo for them to eat!)

Friday: Steak with cucumber and tomato salad- cut up cucumbers and tomatoes and pour italian dressing over both in a bowl and let marinate overnight! (inspired by my green bean delivery- they also offer local meat!!)

Saturday: Out to eat! We have been wanting to go out and try the local restaurants around the new house :)

Sunday: Salmon Burgers and salad (inspired by Whole Foods daily deals. If you sign up for their newsletter you will get a daily deal. They were offering freshly made salmon burgers $4 off a pound!! YEAH BABY!)

SO that is that! I HIGHLY recommend trying Green Bean Delivery if you are in the area and check out our post to get the details on how you can get 50% off your first bin!

There is a great place to eat just around the corner from your house. I don't know if you've tried it yet, but it's called The Wildflower Cafe. My husband and I love it. I suggest calling for reservations. It on the small side and fill up quick. Let me know what you think if/when you try it!
