Meal Plan #36: Fun Day-Themed Meals
The meal plan this week has a themed meal for each night, like Meatless Monday and Taco Tuesday. It’s a fun and tasty meal plan that the whole family will love!
To hear me walk you through this meal plan, listen to the end of the Time Management Insider: E36 – No Apologies For Not Baking, Or For Baking “Wrong” by clicking the black and yellow play button below, or on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts. The episode contains info about the meal plan, some great time-saving tips, and a conversation about the pressure to bake and to bake in specific ways with cookbook author Emily Paster, who recently published a piece on this topic in TASTE magazine.
Here is this week’s meal plan:
Meatless Monday: Italian Cauli and Quinoa Bake with Salad
Salad of lettuce, shredded cabbage slaw, cubed avocado, cucumber, tomato, green onion, with store-bought salad dressing.
Taco Tuesday: Shrimp Tacos
Shrimp Taco Recipe (After filling the flour tortillas with the shrimp and cabbage filling, add some crushed tortilla chips for a bonus crunch!)
Wake Up Wednesday: Breakfast Skewers and Sliced Veggies
Serve with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.
Takeout Thursday: Chinese Garlic Chicken, Rice, Broccoli
Cook rice according to package instructions or in the Instant Pot like this. Make extra for Friday Fun Day.
Steam or stir fry the broccoli, or cook it whole in the oven like this. Make extra for Friday Fun Day.
Friday Fun Day: Baked Wings, Cheesy Broccoli Rice, Mini Taco Salads
For the cheesy rice: Heat up the rice and broccoli separately. Put a bit of water in the rice when heating it so that it gets steamed and fluffy. Stir together the warm broccoli and warm rice. Stir in shredded mozzarella cheese (2 tablespoons per serving). Heat a bit longer to melt the cheese. Note that if you don’t have leftover rice and broccoli, there’s a recipe for Cheesy Broccoli Rice here.
For the mini taco salads: Lettuce, shredded cabbage slaw, tomato, avocado, green onion, sour cream, salsa. Top with crushed tortilla chips.Printable Grocery List - Click Here
