Monthly Meal Plan Challenge: Week Two

Happy Daylight Savings everyone!!!

Ok, ok so I know you’re probably not too excited about losing an hour of sleep, of fun, of work, of whatever you consider that hour to be. But on the positive side of things, at least our days will start to feel longer. I’ve already been enjoying the fact that it’s no longer dark by 5pm, and am so excited to have light for an extra hour.

Has anyone else been trying to plan out meals? I have to say, planning really worked well for me this week. Though I made a few modifications here and there, it kept me on track and really took pressure off of figuring out what to make on a given day and whether or not I had all the correct ingredients. (These are the most stressful parts about cooking for me).

So here goes week two! There are a couple of repeats from last week because they were just THAT good!


Sunday, 3/10/13: 2 Ingredient Chicken Burgers with Grill Creations Smokey Mesquite Seasoning (top with light white cheddar, “fried” egg, and one strip turkey bacon), no bun unless you just need one (to make burgers combine 1 lb ground chicken meat with 1 tablespoon of seasoning) 

Monday, 3/11/13: Thai Coconut Curry Soup

Tuesday, 3/12/13: Baked Brown Sugar Chicken Wings (sub Greek Yogurt for Sour cream)

Wednesday, 3/13/13: Tofu pan “fried” (aka no oil!) with Trader Joe’s Panang Curry Sauce (Trader Joe’s is the BEST for quick easy meals- this one takes under 10 minutes)

Thursday, 3/14/13: Salmon Nicoise Salad

Friday, 3/15/13: Trader Joe’s Smoked Apple Chardonnay Chicken Sausages and Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Saturday, 3/16/13: Roast Whole Chicken

Trader Joe’s is full of “short cut” products that are also not loaded with calories. I highly recommend browsing and looking for some things you like. Making meals with their pre-prepared foods always takes less than 15 minutes.
