Dinner Planning #1

Hey everyone! Sunday is my day to prepare for the week. This includes laundry, chores, and grocery shopping. Because my husband and I are incredibly indecisive, I plan out each dinner for the week. If I don’t plan out the dinners we usually eat out, spend money we shouldn’t be, and eating food we promised each other not to. All of this happens after the conversation that goes something like this: me, “what do you want to do for dinner”; him, “ummm…what do you want to do for dinner”; me, “I asked you first” and on and on it goes, wasting away valuable eating time. Who else is with me on this?! We can’t be the only ones who fall into this trap!

By planning and shopping for our dinners at the beginning of the week, I avoid the never-ending question asking, get to pick healthy meals to make, and avoid going to the grocery store 5 times during the week! The name of this game my friends is called efficiency.

I will share the meals we plan to have with you. I’m not gourmet chef and have very little patience when it comes to cooking. If a recipes has too many steps or too many obscure ingredients, I won’t do it. Without further ado, our meals for the week…

Monday

Korean Beef Bowl – Real Simple Good

How good does this look!

Tuesday

Egg Roll in a Bowl – 40 Aprons

We have made this a few times and it is so good! One of the best parts is that you can make it as spicy or not as you would like with the creamy chili sauce!

Tuesday marks the day of my maternity leave being over and returning back to work [insert crying face emoji here]. Wish me luck guys!

Wednesday

Kalua Pork in the Crock Pot – Nom Nom Paleo

Oh. My. Goodness. this is one of my all-time favorite recipes. This recipe is super simple but does call for Alaea Red Hawaiian Sea Salt. Believe me, it is worth getting this type of sea salt because this recipe is so yummy!

Thursday

By Thursday, we will have enough leftovers.

The Weekend

For the weekend, we usually go out to eat or order in from somewhere.

Let me know what your favorite recipe is to try!
