Meal planning favorites (part 1)

Next week will be a busy/off week as far as meals are concerned, so I thought now would be a good time to look at some past posts and point out some of my favorite recipes.

This Sheet pan chicken tikka masala was delicious. I halved the recipe, but kept the amount of spices the same. I also used the same spice mixture on the vegetables. It was so good! Definitely going in rotation.

We love Grilled Chicken Shawarma Wraps around here. They’re actually quite easy and quick to make and they’re always good.

Thai chicken lettuce cups are also a staple. They’re surprisingly filling. I always think, “We’re going to need a side dish with these,” and we never do.

And when all else fails, there’s always a bag of Trader Joe’s turkey meatballs in the freezer. They often save the day.

 

 

Weekly meal plan – 3/19/16

I know that at least two days this week, we won’t be home for dinner, so the planned menu is a little light this week.

Here is what is on the menu this week:

Sunday: Sheet pan chicken tikka masala I will halve this recipe (I’ll use 1 lb of chicken), but keep the amount of spices the same. I’m also going to use sweet potatoes instead of Yukon Gold.

The rest of the week will include: Pasta with roasted cauliflower. Since I’m halving the above sheet pan chicken tikka masala, I’ll have leftover cauliflower to use in another recipe.

Fish tacos. I don’t have a recipe for these. I just kind of make it up as I go. But these look close to what I like. (I’ll likely use wild-caught Alaskan cod. Something wild-caught always)

Turkey burgers. This is our go-to recipe. I could make these things in my sleep.

Thanks for reading!
