You guys, I’m really excited about this new Facebook group I just started to help you with your meal planning. It’s called What’s for Dinner | The Search for Delicious Meals. For now I have it set as a closed group, so we can all post freely without repercussion from our other FB friends that don’t care (but feel free to invite friends you think will benefit).
The goal is to give you an awesome resource to ask for dinner ideas, post what you’re eating, and pick up lots of meal planning tips. I’ll throw in fun little tidbits, along with other fun food and beverage stuff here and there.
So if you want to get ideas, or give ideas, I hope you’ll join in! Once again, here’s the group:) What’s for Dinner | The Search for Delicious Meals
Now onto this week’s meal plan. Remember, these are just ideas for you to go off of. We RARELY get through everything, but we go out to eat a lot less if there are at least options for dinner.
Weekly Meal Plan 63 – This is How We Do It
Chicken, Bacon, Avocado Ranch Lettuce Cups
Sounds like a mouthful, but they’re so easy and relatively healthy. Except for the bacon, but you could omit that if you really wanted to.
Grilled Curry Chicken Tenders, Parsley Rice, English Peas
Trader Joe’s has a great Curry simmer sauce. Marinate the chicken tenders for 12-24 hours. Grill. Serve with buttered white rice (we’ll use the amazing frozen jasmine rice from TJ’s) sprinkled with parsley, and steamed English peas.
Jalapeno Popper Burgers
This is a case of using what we have in our fridge and pantry. We’ll grill burgers (beef or turkey will work), then top with pickled jalapeños, crumbled bacon (leftover from the lettuce cups), and French fried onions. Then spread cream cheese on the top bun to complete the flavor.
Grilled Salmon, Rice Pilaf, Salad
Make a foil pocket for the salmon, then season with salt, pepper, and lemon slices. Grill and serve with rice pilaf and a small side salad.
Baby Brats, Sauteed Superfood Slaw, Mashed Potatoes
Each one of these comes pre-packaged ready to cook.
Spinach Ricotta Ravioli w/Bolognese
Easy peasy, using the fresh ravioli in the produce section (sometimes in the beginning/end of the meat section), and a jar of bolognese.
Like this but with salmon instead of tuna.
I love having this on the menu every time we serve salmon, because we always seem to have leftovers.
