For those who may be feeling overwhelmed with getting back into the swing of things this fall, I thought I would post my meal plan for this coming week. My children will eat the same foods that my husband and I do with the exception of full salads. I usually dice up fresh veggies for them in addition to cooked ones as they aren’t really into salads. It is fairly straightforward but if any questions or desires for recipes, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on this post or comment on IG post @mealsformeandmyminis. I am happy to help in any way I can.
Supper Meal Plan – September 13-19
Homemade chicken burgers (Ground chicken mixed with egg, BBQ sauce, and breadcrumbs) served on while wheat buns with honey mustard, melted Swiss cheese and avocado.
Mediterranean salad with spinach, roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes, roasted artichokes, green olives, and roasted garlic pods. Use the oils that the vegetables have been marinated in for dressing
Note for children: my kids really like when I dice/mash up their burger and mix it with a bit of ketchup and then put that mixture into the bun. It is easier for them to chew. Portion wise, I give each of my three year olds 3/4 of a burger and my one year old eats 1/4-1/2 depending on the day. So basically, the three children share two burgers.
Three cheese tortellini with tomato sauce and sautéed muschooms
Kale salad with avocado, cucumber, tomato, and pine nuts with Renee’s low fat Caesar salad dressing
Corn and avocado for the kids
Note: Mondays are our busiest evening so this is a great meal that I can make ahead and reheat. Also the salad is quick and easy to put together and toss in the dressing. For an even easier “busy night” option you could serve a veggie tray with hummus.
Lemon and Pepper Haddock with roasted sweet potatoes and cauliflower
Mixed greens salad with blueberries, diced pears, roasted chickpeas, and grated Swiss cheese with homemade dressing of olive oil and blueberry balsamic vinegar mix
- Chicken, peppers, and onions cooked in a Greek seasoning and Grapeseed oil
- Naan bread
- Diced cucumbers and tomatoes
- Feta cheese
Greek salad with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, peppers, diced feta, and a homemade dressing of olive oil, Greek seasoning, and black olive tapenade
Pork Tenderloin, roasted red potatoes, corn on the cob, and steamed snap peas
Spinach salad with mushrooms, hard-boiled egg, baby tomatoes, and cheddar cheese with homemade honey mustard dressing
Moroccan Stew (tomato based stew/soup with lots of veggies and chickpeas)
Fresh Pumpernickel bread (with roasted garlic spread for the adults)
Salmon with quinoa(or brown rice) and roasted asparagus
Spinach salad with pineapple, strawberries, almonds, and goat cheese with poppy seed dressing
Until next time…stay healthy!
