Menu Planning #12

After a week of Plated meals, I’m back in action in the meal planning game. I’m going to bring you a review of last week this week (I PROMISE!) And another Chrissy Teigen recipe.

Plus I have a couple new recipes from this week that I’ll owe you. I’m going to try to stay on top of that! Recipe links below!

Pasta alla Norma from Cravings Cookbook

Pasta alla Norma from Cravings Cookbook

Sorry I’m not sorry for two pasta recipes in a row. But this was so freakin’ delicious that I had to share it immediately. And by immediately I mean two days after I ate it. Though technically I ate it for lunch yesterday too so it’s only a day later 😉

Let’s back up a second though. I have to give major props to my girl Chrissy Teigen. If you know me at all you know that I, along pretty much everyone I know, finds Chrissy to be HILARIOUS. I mean she is, and she has this super cute little family but she’s a model and who would think a model could produce a cookbook that has so few healthy recipes in it? Welp, Chrissy did just that. I’ve been eyeing the cookbook since it came out in February but I was hesitant to buy it since I knew there was going to be a lot of Thai recipes that I had no interest in. So I did the next best thing and got it from the library. Holy crap are there so many recipes in it I have to try! It doesn’t hurt that Chrissy’s humor is evident on every page. Continue reading

Menu Planning #11

Here we are, Monday again!

I checked Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook out at the library so I’m pretty sure tomorrow night’s burger recipe will be from there, plus I forgot to pick another one to make so that TBD on Thursday will totally be from the book as well 🙂 So many more good recipes for me to try than I expected. Aka my I thought with my pickiness I wouldn’t be able to enjoy as many, which is totally the case with a lot of the Asian inspired recipes 😉

And I bought a fat carrot last week so I could spiralize it this week and I think that means chicken noodle/zoodle soup. Even though I’m a weirdo and don’t really like carrots cooked. SO we’ll see how that goes.

Menu Planning #10

I’d try to defend myself on where I’ve been lately but I purposely skipped last week’s menu planning since I wasn’t home half the week. And I’m ready to kick this week’s butt! Between this menu plus the breakfast burritos I just posted for you, I have a few more things to share so get ready 🙂 Have a great week! — As always, recipe links below

Freezer Breakfast Burritos

Freezer Breakfast Burritos

I found myself making breakfast burritos again yesterday and realized this was the prime time to bring these easy and delicious breakfast options into your life! Well I won’t lie, they’re not as easy as say the frittata in terms of making. I’m a terrible assembler and always without fail try to stuff too much into my burritos (and enchiladas) and then I get frustrated with they won’t roll up all pretty. But actually, I just want my dang burritos to be stuffed with the yumminess! Is that too much to ask for?

Oh right.. back to these breakfast burritos. So these are just annoying if you’re like me and stuff too much into them. If you can restrain yourself, they’re not annoying at all. AND you get to pop them into the freezer and eat them all week (or over the next couple weeks). Freezer Breakfast Burritos Continue reading

Menu Planning #9

Hello again friends!

Did anyone notice I skipped last week’s menu planning? I told Mom I’m pretty sure the only person who noticed was me since I had to struggle all week to figure out what to eat! So I had a super successful day of cooking yesterday to make up for it and here we are back at it! All the links are below 🙂

I also have to organize my life because I’m pretty sure I have some recipes to bring you.

Vegetarian Taco Bowl

Vegetarian Taco Bowl

I’m not vegetarian, I don’t want to be vegetarian but sometimes I eat meals like this and I’m like okay I can totally see living like this. Until I spot a delicious looking steak, burger, etc. BUT I really didn’t miss the meat at all in this dish and someone on the internets told me once that it’s healthy (and good for the environment or something like that) to eat meatless meals sometimes. So that could all be made up because you can’t believe everything the Internet, though most humans believe EVERYTHING from the Internet. It’s a mystery.

All I can tell you is that this is delicious and you should make it for your Taco Tuesday or Meatless Monday or just for life in general. Feel free to add any other veggies you like, if you’re into the corn situation that would probs be good but corn is not my friend. A homemade pico de gallo would also be super delish on this but salsa works well. Vegetarian Taco Bowl

Menu Planning #8

Happy Monday!

I  was seriously struggling today to come up with the meal plan for the week. I just couldn’t decide what I’d be in the mood for! Such a struggle sometimes. ANYWAYS I got my act together and figured it out for you! If you can’t tell I bought way too many eggs recently because when they’re 99 cents you just have to buy them. But this makes for easy breakfasts for the week!
