Doing some kind of meal planning on the weekend is my saving grace.
Most nights, I don’t get home from work until around 6:30. My toddler’s bedtime is 8pm, so that doesn’t leave me a lot of quality time with him in the evenings.
If I prep food on Sundays (and mid week on Wednesdays), I can spend my weeknights not rushing around the kitchen, and actually make dinner time easier.
My goal is to do meal prep every weekend (unless we are travelling) and I’ll be posting it on the blog (maybe twice month). I love seeing other bloggers post what they do with their meal prep and I find it inspiring.
Here’s what I made on Sunday:
Pizza Spaghetti Pie – I’ve made this twice already. I love the flavor and texture, I eat this with egg on top.
– Scrambled eggs with onions, bell peppers and asparagus ( x 3) = 3 breakfasts for me
– Breakfast burritos
– Roasted Cauliflower Rice – 2 pans
– Copy cat PF Chang’s spicy green beans – I made enough for 4 servings. This was a hit with my toddler and leftovers were still flavorful and crunchy. Today, I’m going to make another batch. I bought a 2lb bag from Costco.
– Baked mini pancakes topped with blueberries and chocolate chips.
