Its been a while since I've done a post on this week's eats. Don't worry, we've been eating alright, but we've been doing it in Colorado, Atlanta, Boston, and even a bit at home! Despite lots of traveling between Mike and I, I did still manage to meal plan for the times we were home, which helped keep my belly full and the green in my pockets.
Now that our life schedule is back to normal for the foreseeable future, here's what we'll be cooking up this week:
Sunday: Spinach mac and cheese muffins with a green salad
Monday: Pesto chicken panini with a side of lemon-garlic sauteed broccoli
Tuesday: Broccoli cheese cheddar soup with a green salad and bread
This is a new recipe to me but I've made similar recipes before. I may try blending in some cannellini beans for added protein and texture. They're pretty flavorless and a great, inexpensive way to bulk up a meal.
Wednesday: Pan Roasted Chicken with Lemon Garlic Green Beans and Potatoes
Thursday: Leftovers of Sunday's and/or Wednesday's Dinner
Between hosting a house church and working late, left overs are a God-send on some nights! Plus its a good way to clean out the fridge.
Friday: Sliced steak gyros
Saturday: Happy St. Patty's Day! We'll probably have Irish food with the fam somewhere- TBD. All I know is that Mike and my dad are brewing beer and what better way to celebrate this holiday? At some point I'll probably make some of this Irish Soda Bread. For whatever reason, I seem to identify most with my Irish heritage, despite having peeps from Italy, Germany and England. Maybe my love of the Irish was helped along by the fact that I did Irish step dancing when I was younger, of which no evidence exists. Nope, Laura did not take a video on New Years Eve of me busting out my dance moves. Not at all.
What are you eating this week? Do you meal plan or do you tend to fly by the seat of your pants, whipping out your culinary creativity when needed?
