Week 55, y’all! Welcome to our weekly meal plan post! Last week was lighter fare with some vegetarian options–and we didn’t even plan it that way! This week is pretty meat-centric. We didn’t plan that either. It just happened like that!
If you’re a fan of eating meat at most of your dinners, use this meal plan as is, but don’t forget to check the archives if you’d like to switch things up a bit.
Let’s check out the goodness, shall we?
Italian Stuffed Peppers from The Speckled Palate. These could easily be made meatless for Meatless Monday. Just grab some Gimme Lean Italian sausage to use in place of the meaty sausage. Either way, I am loving the mini farfalle pasta Erin uses instead of the more expected rice. Nice!
Thai Turkey Meatballs with Peanut Sauce from Pook’s Pantry. Not only is this recipe sure to be delicious–Cheryl is an amazing and accomplished chef–but as a bonus, Cheryl teaches you to make these cute little curly green onion garnishes!
Soy Ginger Chicken Kabobs from Comfortably Domestic. Sweet-sour and a little spicy. And I love the addition of pineapple to the savory vegetables. This just looks So Very Good!
Smashed Bacon Double Cheeseburgers from me. If you love a good smashed burger, give this one a try. All the cheese, all the bacon, and a not-too-thick burger means a lot of flavor without having to fight to get the whole thing in your mouth!
Pulled Pork Coleslaw Egg Rolls from The Speckled Palate. These guys are the Southern classic pulled pork and coleslaw bundled up in wrappers and cooked like egg rolls. The best kind of fusion food, if you ask me!
Blueberry Mini Pies from Pook’s Pantry. Tiny little hand pies! You know, for portion control. But I won’t tell if you decide to eat 4-5 at a time. I’ll be too busy eating 4 or 5 at one time!
Strawberries and Cream Chia Pudding Parfaits from Comfortably Domestic. I have not played with chia seeds before, for much the same reason that it took Kirsten a long time to use them: Chia Pets! Green hair aside, Kirsten gives you the lowdown on the nutrition packed into these little seeds. I may just become a convert!
And there you have it, friends. We hope you enjoy the menu plan and the meals you cook from it. Please let me know what you try and how you and your family enjoyed it!
Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to check the archives and pin this week if it really speaks to you!
Have a lovely day.
