One Week of Meals!

I don’t know about y’all, but after going to work all day I get home hungry and unmotivated to make dinner. But, it has to happen. So, my method to alleviate this madness is planning ahead and having a cheat dinner or two in the house.


A cheat dinner at my house is something easy like a frozen pizza or a frozen family style dinner. It requires little to no effort, generally just a throw in the oven for a bit and voila, dinner is served.


Every other Friday I think about what meals we should have that week and make a list and then make a grocery list based on the meals. I don’t particularly like going to the grocery store, so I tend to go every other week. It means that we end up running low on fruits and veggies by the end of the second week, but getting some frozen and some fresh solves that problem!


I don’t like to assign meals to certain days, because what I planned for Thursday may not sound good on Thursday! So I prefer the fly by the seat of your pants approach. Also, my recipes during the week are generally super easy. I don’t want something too complicated because I like to relax in the evenings. On weekends I’ll do things that take more time like homemade pizza!


Last week looked like this:

Four cans of chicken, one cup Greek yogurt, 1/4 chopped walnuts, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, chopped celery, and cranberries all mixed together. This is great in a lettuce wrap! And super healthy!

Wednesday
Steak

Using a store marinade makes steak super easy! Just throw it in a bag for a little while (30 minutes to an hour) and then grill! 

Thursday
Perfect Meat Marinade

Friday


Leftovers!
