Meal Plan 22.0

Monday: Amylu Caramelized Onion & Aged White Cheddar Charbroiled Chicken Burgers from Costco. Whew..that’s a long name for a burger but I can tell you that it meets all expectations and more. I grabbed these looking for an easy dinner night with summer pool swims and definitely is a win! I have eaten the burger over a bed of greens and the kids have eaten them with a bun.

Tuesday: Taco Tuesday…simple and easy for summer. Going to add some fresh corn on the cob for the kids. I personally do not like corn on the cob and my husband says I am un-American for it…haha…I like corn in salsa, soups or salad, but not on the cob. Who knows…the kids like it so they get it as a summer treat.

Wednesday: Basil Vinaigrette + Brami Pasta + cut up chicken + tomatoes = summer perfection. I made this the other day for our swim meet and it was such a delight. The basil plants are exploding so use them up. Pesto is also a good option, but this basil vinaigrette wins in my book. The red wine vinegar adds the best touch and it seems lighter than pesto.

Thursday: Ina Garten’s Perfect Roast Chicken: I got a fennel bulb in my CSA box this week and this is the perfect recipe to use it. This roast chicken recipe is dear to my heart because it is one of those foods that feed the soul. Sarah cooked it one night and impromptu asked me and my kids eat it with her family. I was in a scramble for dinner that night and I could not have been more appreciative. My kids ate every last bite. The sauce in this recipe is divine and I could drink it all. Enjoy 🙂

Friday: Grill night + cornbread salad. Grill whatever meat you like and make some cornbread salad. I have been craving cornbread salad now that summer has arrived. There is a giggle about cornbread salad because I made it once in grad school and my roommate looked at me like I was crazy because the dish is massive and I literally made it for one person. I have a recipe from an old church cookbook but here is another one I found that looks similar.

Summer snack: I have been making a version of this shake all summer long. Something about it is so refreshing to me in the afternoons. Also helps get my protein in. This is my version:

  1. 1 c almond milk or oat milk
  2. 1 scoop of favorite protein powder (I prefer Clean Simple Eats chocolate or vanilla)
  3. 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  4. big sprinkle of salt
  5. 2 tbsp chia seeds
  6. Large handful of spinach
  7. 2 tbsp PB fit peanut butter powder
  8. 1 c ice
  9. Blend it all together and enjoy. Tastes like a frosty to me!

Happy cooking this week!
