Getting back into the swing of things after vacation looks different now. I made this meal plan on Tuesday of last week so that when we got home, we could make our grocery run that afternoon. Also, there are just less salads on the post-vacation menu because we all know I am a pregnant person who cannot deal with them right now.
On the other hand, right now it is Friday, and I have yet to plan….50% of next week’s meals? Pray for us, people. We’re going to the grocery store tomorrow.
Monday – Brats, Spinach Salad, Potato Salad, Baked Beans
My mother would like to introduce you all to a new term – Sloth-e-que. It’s when I plan a BBQ-style meal and then…she cooks all of it. Voila! It was good.
Wednesday – Grilled Teriyaki Chicken, Obsessively Good Avocado Cucumber Salad, Steamed Rice
We haven’t grilled enough this summer, so I’m trying to work that into our meal planning. The chicken was just chicken breasts that sat in teriyaki sauce, marinating for a couple of hours. Easy, and delicious. The cucumber salad? AMAZING. We will be making this all summer long.
Thursday – Actual Drunken Noodles from Cravings, Chicken Egg Rolls, Peanut Coleslaw
I’ve turned the page on drunken noodles in Cravings too many times to count. This week, I decided we could give them a try. They were delicious, but with the amount of chopping and ingredients, the next time I make this will be on a weekend.
Miscellaneous – Chickpea Salad
Lunch salad of the week!
