*This is obviously not the the 25th time I've posted my weekly plan, since this is a new series I'm starting here, It is however, the 25th week of the year, and the 25th week of meal planning in general for me this year :).
Every week in my bullet journal, I write out my weekly meal plan, my grocery list, and a list of things I want to prep for the week. And I'm letting you guys have a sneak peek at it, cross-outs and all! Plus links to some of the recipes I'm using this week. For me, meal prep is essential to a smooth running week. It makes a difference in my entire mood and only takes a couple hours. And it allows us to sit down as a family almost every night for dinner.
This week I'm making these recipes:
Chicken Gyro Salad from Smitten Kitchen I've been using a lot of SK recipes lately, mostly from her cookbook. It's a great book if you're looking for one to pick up!
Chicken Lettuce Cups from Shutterbean This are a HUGE hit with my family.
My own Whole 30 compliant meatballs
Paleo Tzatziki from Jay's Baking Me Crazy
When the weather is nice, we basically barbecue/salad it up all weekend and Monday through Thursday I try to focus on simple, healthy meals. This summer, I'm having the kiddos cook on Thursdays, to the best of their ability. The idea is that they chose what to make and then, with minimal assistance, make dinner themselves. Last week was our first week trying this out, and they loved it! We'll see how they feel come the last week of August.
Come back next week for another installment of weekly meal plans!*
*Hopefully I can manage to do this weekly!!
