Meal Pinning Monday

May 21, 2017

This is finally the last week of school before Summer. I could nearly give an Oscar's acceptance speech to tell you how I feel about the survival that took place my first year in 3rd grade. 

In that, I've also gotten into a lunch rut that's turned this week into a lunch box of two Keto waffles, pepperoni, and 2 cheese sticks. Super well rounded. Insanely lazy. 

That should tell you something... I usually don't mind spending an average of 4+ hours a Sunday prepping food for the week and I've come down to waffles, cheese, and a large stick of pepperoni in my fridge. None of witch you'll find paired together on any fine dining menu. 

Speaking of fine dining... the chef Jeremy and I worked for in college is going to be on this season of The Next Food Network Star. I'm thinking of episode recaps and thoughts? Who'd be interested? 

[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]
MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking.

Monday - Breakfast as usual

Tuesday - Chicken with Asparagus

Wednesday - Rotisserie Chicken with Loaded Cauli Mash & Salad from the Garden (this chicken recipe is a long time Pinterest favorite of mine. I usually do it to a whole chicken and use it for a few different meals but this week I'm just using chicken breasts.)

Thursday - leftovers

Friday - Pizza Night (I'm making mine on Fat Head dough or crustless... depends on how I feel lol) - this also isn't the topping I'm doing, just the crust. It's a really good basic crust. 

Saturday - Family Date Night

Sunday - Cajun Chicken Pasta with Andoullie Sausage
