Meal Plan 9.0

This week has flown by and its already time for another menu! Spring break is upon us and I know some people travel and schedules are usually a bit…unusual. We will be home so I will cook but try to add in a couple special meals.

Monday – Meatloaf, roasted (or mashed) potatoes, roasted broccoli. One of my kids requested meatloaf the other day so I’m adding it to our menu this week. Guys, I don’t have a magical meatloaf recipe, this is one of those things that I like to say, “google and go”. I will be using this one from I heart naptime because Kimberly and I both trust and enjoy her recipes!

Tuesday – Tacos….of course. Make sure you get your beans and your guac! haha

Wednesday – Salmon , sweet potatoes and greens. I love this because its so simple, so healthy and doesn’t take any brain power from me! Bust out that Trader Joes salmon rub, toss the sweet potatoes with olive oil and salt and throw in a green salad or saute up some greens if I have them from my CSA box!

Thursday – Dinner in the city – We have to go to the big city on Thursday and my oldest will come along with me so we will make the most of the afternoon/evening and grab dinner out. I’m thinking maybe True Food Kitchen. SO good, if you haven’t tried its both healthy and so delicious every time.

FridayTomato Basil Pasta with Burrata I am here to tell that you I am not a pasta person, or a cheese person but this is one pasta and cheese dish I will eat all day long. We will be able to hit up the Trader Joes this week and I fully plan on grabbing a big container of Basil and some Burrata cheese because everyone in my house LOVES this meal and it feels right for Spring break. Don’t skip any of the parts of this dish if you make it! I feel like all of the elements make it what it is! (we like to add some chicken sometimes).

Saturday – Fire Pit Night – hopefully the weather will cooperate. We love to celebrate a special week or event with a fire pit meal in our back yard. This is nothing fancy. Hot dogs, some chips, bagged salad and the Randall smores. Now that everyone in our house is older and I have trained their taste buds well, we have our own version of a smore that we enjoy. We love a sweet/salty situation so we ditch the graham cracker and instead we love the perfectly salted and buttery Private Selection brand Classic Entertainment Cracker found at Kroger. They are the perfect size and saltiness. We use the traditional sized mallow and a high quality, super dark chocolate. Its like a grown up smore :). Let us know if you try it!

Happy Cooking!
