This Week’s Meal Plan

Happy Monday! Here’s what I’m cooking up this week.

S – Pan-Seared Salmon with Mango Chutneyย [recipe soon! Super simple]

M – Sriracha Quinoa Cakes with Goat Cheese & Spinach

T – Sweet Potato & Turkey Quinoa Chili

W – John’s planning it ๐Ÿ™‚

Th – Warm Balsamic Kale Salad

F – Leftovers, wing it, or eat out

When I meal plan, I write down everything I know I need from the recipes and then list out to the side the things I’m not sure I have on hand (especially spices that I may be low on). I check the side items before heading to the store and add them to the list if necessary. Then, I don’t run into any AH-CRAP-I’M-OUTTA-CUMIN moments while cooking after a long day at work when I don’t feel like going to the store. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh some of these look delicious. Can I come over for dinner!? We have a kind of ‘off” week so I don’t have anything set in stone. Guess I am going to be “winging” a bunch of it.

    We had these last week and they were great! You could probably use those GF breadcrumbs instead of the panko. http://www.howsweeteats.com/2012/02/bbq-salmon-burgers/

    This week, the menu is:
    M: Turkey Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans (man meal, as I call it)
    Tu: Sandwiches/salads (we are both working later)
    W: Marinated Korean sirloin tip steaks, rice, roasted veggies (brussels or butternut squash)
    Th: Italian chicken sausage and ww pasta casserole
    F: Leftovers or wing it, as you said!

      Thanks for the link to the salmon burgers. I’ve never made them (or even had them!). Your menu this week sounds delicious, especially the sirloin tips!

    I am slowcooking chicken breasts for our dinners this week. I’m not sure what I will put on them, seasoning or bbq most likely. Can you repost the link for the turkey quinoa chili? It is not working for me. Could you do a post on breakfast and lunch meal planning? I need some new ideas!
