Meal Plan – January 12-18

Meal Plan

School starts back for my husband and I so dinners will be a little easier to prepare. Easy and yummy….I’m in! We all see those wonder looking dishes on Pinterest, pin them to our wall and never make them! I am trying to end that cycle with trying out a new Pinterest recipe. Hopefully you will follow along and let me know how it turned out.

Monday: Tacos (a family favorite)
We use 1lb of ground meat, 1 pkg of taco seasoning (follow instructions on back) and all the good sides.
I am trying this year to eat less processed foods so I hope to be able to make my own taco seasoning soon.

Tuesday: Chicken & Vegis
3-4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Marinate in Jack Daniels Mesquite Marinade for 30+ minutes
Preheat Oven to 325 degrees
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until done
Steam vegetables

Wednesday: Leftovers
We have church on Wednesdays so we need to leave the house early in the evening.

Thursday: *Pinterest Recipe* from Mostly Homemade Mom
This recipe can be found on her website as well.
Farmer’s Market Spaghetti
adapted from Kraft Recipes

4 cups cherry tomatoes
6 cloves garlic, smashed
4 sprigs fresh thyme
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette
3/4 lb spaghetti noodles
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

In a medium bowl, toss together tomatoes, garlic, thyme, and olive oil. Spread on a baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until tomatoes have burst. Meanwhile, cook and drain spaghetti reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Add the water back in with the drained spaghetti along with the balsamic vinaigrette and 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese. When the tomatoes are finished roasting, remove from oven and discard thyme. Add tomatoes and garlic to the spaghetti, scraping the baking sheet to make sure all the juices and flavored bits get all in there! Toss to combine well, serve with remaining parmesan cheese sprinkled over top.

We will not have any other meals for the weekend. We have plans!
