2018 Monday Meal Plan: Week 23 (May 28-June 3, 2018)

I know, weeks 21 and 22 are missing.  What can I say?  Life got busy.  We had no plan.  I just reverted to survival mode, quick dinners, a little too much takeout, and pulling stuff from the freezer on a whim daily.  The last 2 weeks of school does me in every single year.  I should remember that for next year and prep ahead!  Back at it this week.



Who doesn’t love a BLT?  This one is without the bread, in salad form, with some egg and spinach in addition to the usual BLT ingredients.  Plus a tangy, slightly sweet vinaigrette that I can practically drink it’s so good.

Trying this Skinnytaste.com recipe for Harissa Chicken for the first time.  I made it in my Instant Pot (affiliate link), and I find that fresh, unfrozen chicken breasts are done in 12-13 minutes at high pressure, vs. the 20 she suggests, but your results may vary!  I am serving mine over brown rice with cucumbers and peppers and some tzatziki sauce on the side.

Monday – No recipe, but we are having teriyaki chicken kabobs.  I marinate chunks of chicken in teriyaki sauce, and then alternate with chunks of bell pepper on skewers and grill.  Brown rice and a veggie tray on the side.  If pineapple looks good at the store, maybe that too!

Tuesday – My favorite grilled flank steak recipe with some roasted red potatoes and asparagus on the side.

Wednesday – Leftovers.

Thursday – The kids have a swim meet in the evening, so leftovers or takeout.

Friday –  Cheeseburger Pasta Bake and a veggie tray.

Saturday – Spicy Honey Brushed Chicken Thighs, tomato and cucumber salad and roasted sweet potatoes.

Sunday –  Leftovers.
