Meal Plan Monday: Taco Like a Pirate

Meal Plan Monday

Apparently every fall I attempt to really get back down to both meal planning and blogging. I looked back at my past “Meal Plan Monday”s and found that I had restarted last year also on the week of Talk Like A Pirate Day. And the last one I did was the week of Halloween last year. Oops. I have Pinterest now, so maybe things will be better?

  • Monday – Macaroni & Cheese, Green Beans. I need to make double to bring dinner to a sick family.
  • Tuesday – Our first day of MOPS! We’ll have chicken & rice stir fry for dinner. I’m also bringing an egg dish and a bread for our first MOPS meeting.
  •  Wednesday – Taco Like a Pirate, it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day!
  • Thursday – Chicken Caesar Salad, Toast
  • Friday – Grilled Turkey Burgers with potatoes and corn on the cob.

Lunch Options

  • Pepperoni Sandwich (Jerrod’s favorite)
  • Leftovers
  • Almond Butter & Banana Sandwich
  • Quesadilla

  1. Monday – Pesto Tortellini (Trader Joe’s refrigerated, was in the freezer), green salad.
  2. Tuesday – Chicken and Rice; Grilled chicken, rice made in the rice cooker, and whatever vegetable we have. Might try making the pea pods again, steaming them on top of the rice.
  3. Wednesday – Breakfast for Dinner; French toast with the leftover homemade Challah bread I have in the freezer. Probably scrambled eggs, not sure what else.
  4. Thursday – Chicken Caesar Salad; Leftover grilled chicken, romaine, spinach, Caesar dressing, etc. Serve with garlic toast.
  5. Friday – Pizza on the Grill
