Meal Plan Monday- a short week

Y’all just tell me if you are tired of hearing me talk about burgers, pizza and tacos. I’m trying to mix it up in the kitchen, but life you know? Here’s last week’s meal plan.

Saturday- BBQ with friends

Sunday- Burgers and Pasta salad

Monday-Cauliflower Pizza

Tuesday- Chili

Wednesday- Zucchini Tuna Cakes with Sweet Potato Fries

Thursday- Skillet Tacos

Friday- Camping

I managed to do our grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s again this week so for the BBQ on Saturday I brought along a sampling of our favorite snacks from TJs.

Goat cheese, plantain chips, greek yogurt spinach artichoke dip and sriracha hummus.

On Sunday we basically repeated Saturday’s dinner by grilling burgers and mixing up a quick pasta salad. I used Trader Joe’s gluten free pasta and mixed in feta, olives, artichoke hearts, cucumbers, tomato and a Greek dressing. It was delicious and so easy!

Monday was another pan of Daily Garnish’s Cauliflower Pizza. My girls actually don’t love this meal but Alex and I do so we keep making it in hopes they will change their minds.

I put Chili on our meal plan because the temperatures seemed to dip a little last week. However, by the time I got around to making it we were back to 90 degrees and higher. Nevertheless, on Tuesday we all devoured our Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili. We are ready for fall and football season!

I made a new-to-me recipe of Zucchini Tuna Cakes on Wednesday. Another meal that Alex and I gobbled up but the girls hardly touched. At least the sweet potato fries went over well.

Our final meal of the week was another Skillet Taco dish. I included all of the food in our fridge to use up before our weekend trip including ground beef, bell peppers, sweet potatoes and salsa. We wrapped our taco filling in soft tortillas and topped with guacamole and finally we had a meal that the girls couldn’t get enough of!

And that brings us to the weekend. I’ll be back tomorrow with some of our beach and camping adventures. But in case you are wondering, I spent way too much money on grocery shopping this week. Our Trader Joe’s haul amounted to $178 and I popped into Publix once for oats, raisins and almond milk for another $20 purchase. I blame it on the holiday weekend and snacks for our camping trip.
