First ever meal plan!
Some of you might know by now that I’m normally preparing lunch and dinner (for 2). This might sound a bit terrifying, taking into consideration that I’m also working full-time from an office, working out regularly, cleaning, doing everyday mess control at home and visiting family every couple of days (does that really fit in 24 hours?). My routine for the lunch is either preparing something before work that can be simply reheated at lunchtime, grabbing some leftovers or cooking the previous night (that is normally dinner as well, then). I was looking into options for making my life easier, and making a meal plan actually seemed like a good idea to at least relieve myself from trying to think of ideas for next day’s lunch or dinner. I gave it a shot for a week, and I’m quite happy with the results 🙂 (boyfriend probably agrees). I share the plan with you with the changes made along the way due to leftovers, ingredient issues or lucky neighbor’s food gifts.
Lunch: Tuna, bell pepper and mushroom casserole
Dinner: Planned – ratatouille, actual – Tarragon chicken soup (thank you neighbor :))
Lunch: Leftover tuna casserole for my Mr, leftover tarragon chicken soup for me
Dinner: chickpeas and spinach ‘soup’ (something like this)
Lunch: Leftover chickpeas and spinach ‘soup’
Dinner: Home-made wraps with ham, omelette, onion rings, veggies and mayo
WEEKEND was spent snowboarding in the mountains, so I prepared “survival food” only 🙂
Saturday: (Pre-made) Meatball sandwiches with mustard
Dinner: not sure what we had for dinner, but I remember the boyfriend was really hungry – there, where is the plan for Saturday?!
Sunday: (Pre-made) Spanish potato omelette (like the one here) sandwiches with ketchup.
If you are also having problems ‘catering’ for your loved ones, I hope you found this a teeny bit useful 🙂 OR if you are a bada*s meal planner and make ahead meal maker, teach us!!!
Next weekly meal plan coming soon 🙂
