Week Eats v.12 // Meal Planning & Link Up
Remember me? With my high resolutions about meal planning?
It’s been a bit of a mess over here. But I’m determined to get back on my own band wagon. Is it called a band wagon if it was yours? Like you, singular?
The purpose of Week Eats is to give each other ideas and inspiration on what we’re preparing for the week for food. And if you’re a blogger, and you blogged about food in any capacity this week, link up so we can get inspiration there, too? Peas and thanks.
My friend Rachel started a great Facebook group with her meal plans for the week. Talk about saweeeet? Yup. Sweet. So ask to join here and see what wonders she performs. I’m inspired. And hungry just reading it.
I’m going to borrow a little from Rachel and then scoot back to my usual and predictable ways, Smitten Kitchen, et al.
The week is a special one because our dear friends in a band are staying with us. So I’ll be feeding seven hungry men in addition to my usual crew.
Monday: steak night and celebrating a special birthday
I’ve been doing steaks the Alton Brown method with cast iron skillets in a 500 degree oven. And they’ve been really ruddy good. So go read his method here.
Tuesday: Beef Chili & chocolate cake.
I won’t eat the cake because we always give up sweets for Lent, but with seven guys around, I’m sure they can devour my grandma’s pantry chocolate cake with my mom’s frosting.
Going with my sis & bro-in-law’s chili. Super simple & super good. Similar recipe here.
Wednesday: homemade pizza.
The guys’ show is Wednesday night so we’ll make pizza in the afternoon so they have something easy to grab & snack on before they play later in the evening. It’s also so easy to make a big batch and lots of fun toppings. I go off my recipe here.
Thursday: Chicken Stir Fry with brown rice, garlic broccoli and egg rolls.
Snapping this up from Rachel’s Menu. To see it, hop on over and join the group!
No seriously. What should I make on Friday?? Considering breakfast for dinner.
