Meal Plan 5.0

Last week was a full and busy week marked by a lot of special calendar days. I’m ready to sink into a little bit of normal in the week ahead. Here is what I’ll be cooking!

Monday: Steak soup with easy dutch oven bread. This is soup has been a family favorite for years. My mom found this recipe during my high school years, I believe, and it lives on. We love it, you can tweak it to your liking and its one of those soups that is even better the next day. I posted the bread in our very first meal plan and it really is a recipe we love and it never fails me!

Tuesday: Salmon with coconut rice and roasted broccoli. If you read our blog post this last week comparing Costco and Sam’s Club, then you know how much I love to grab the Salmon. We try to have a fish once a week when we can! I have discovered the salmon rub from Trader Joes and it is SO good and turns into a lovely glaze when it cooks on the Salmon. We don’t live close to TJ’s so if thats your situatuion as well you could probably mix up this minimal seasoning as the ingredients are just brown sugar, smoked paprika, salt pepper and thyme! We like our broccoli roasted with some olive oil, salt and pepper. I roast it at 375 for about 20 minutes.

Wednesday: Taco night!!! O.k. by now we all know this is just a staple somewhere in the meal plan. The best no brainer, everyones happy night!

Thursday: Mongolian Chicken. If you like Asian flavors this one is SO good and always comes together quickly for me. Its a major hit at my house so double it up if you want leftovers! I keep it simple and serve it with Jasmine rice and some roasted broccoli or asparagus.

Friday: The temps are going to drop here in the south so I need another soup to pull us through the weekend. This Zuppa Toscana from Paleo Running Mama is so full of flavor and something we all love. If I’m really on it, I like to double the recipe so we have some leftovers for lunch!

Weekend prep: Super hero muffins. These are a favorite at our house and so easy to make them how you like them! These some from Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky’s book, Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. The linked recipe is one version. We don’t put apples in ours but I like to use 1 cup zucchini and maple syrup rather than honey. We also like some chocolate chips in ours!

Happy Cooking!
