The past few weeks have been CRAZY for us. Lots of summer fun mixed in with travel, a birthday, preschool prep, and the usual stuff. I honestly don’t remember the last time I shared a weekly meal plan with you… Sorry about that! Though I will say, many of them were “leftovers” or “eat out,” so I promise you didn’t miss too much. I got back into it this week and am trying something new by sharing it here instead of just on social media. I like that I can easily share recipe photos, comments, and you have a place to go back to. Let me know what you think!
weekly meal plan:
honey buffalo ground turkey meatballs
This week, we only used 1 lb of meat and added lots of shredded zucchini from our garden instead. Easy, healthy, cheaper = WIN. We use applesauce as the egg substitute.
crockpot honey garlic chicken and veggies
I LOVE this as it is literally a full meal all in one (crock)pot.
baked breadcrumb chicken and roasted sweet potatoes for the grown-ups. Leftovers for Ollie.
Wednesdays are currently soccer night. We always bring dinner for Ollie to eat on the way and after. This week, we decided to make a nice dinner for the adults to eat after Ollie goes to bed. I’ve been searching for ways to feel a bit more connected to Erik amidst the craziness that is this season of life and we’re hoping a night dinner just the two of us is a fun way to do so every once in a while. Date nights out are great but require so much planning and can be hard on the budget…
No recipe for this. We will use chicken tenders, safe “mayo,” breadcrumbs, and Go Veggie vegan parmesan “cheese” for the chicken. The veggies will be sweet potato, red onion, peppers, olive oil, salt, pepper, and some chili powder.
pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches
No recipe to share here. Put chicken breast and your favorite sauce in the crockpot, shred, and enjoy. We recently even made our own BBQ sauce. So easy! This meal will include pickles on the side for Ollie and I, much to Erik’s dismay. We will have some watermelon too I think.
No recipe and I’m still working on a side to go with this one. As we are traveling the next day; the side will likely be whatever produce we haven’t finished/packed or something from the pantry.
There you have it! That’s our allergy-friendly weekly meal plan. Let me know if you have any questions! You’ll notice recipes mainly at the start of the week. We usually do all our complicated meals early so we can do Sunday meal prep to make things easier during the week.
