My name is Jen. I have a contagiously funny husband, three awesomely gorgeous daughters, a knack for design, a love for writing, an obsession with kids fashion, a secret desire to be a photographer and a curfew of 10 pm. WHO'S WITH ME?

Meal Plan Monday- April 15
Up a day early! After missing this post for the last two weeks! Winning!
Here’s our line-up for some good eats this week:
Marinated grilled steak tips (marinade- bit of olive oil, bit of worcestshire sauce, montreal steak seasoning, garlic)
Sauteed asparagus + brussel sprouts (in balsamic vinegar, with some chopped garlic)
Carrot Fries (strips of carrots sauteed in coconut oil)
Dinner at Casa Coelho. I’m channeling the Universe to send vibes for “sausage and peppers.” Whole Foods has a great nitrate-free, preservative-free, real-ingredient chicken cilantro sausage and I have two nifty packs sitting in my freezer. I’d like to nominate this for their dinner. (You reading this, dad?)
Salmon fillets grilled, with seasoning
Black, red, garbanzo bean salad (onion, tomato, parsley, red wine vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt)
Dinner at Casa Senecal (word is that we’re having a fish meal of sorts. Mmmmm.)
Against the Grain Gluten-free Pesto Pizza. Salad. Fruit. PS- these pizzas ROCK.
Extra food prep for the week:
- 12 hard boiled eggs (to throw on salads or grab as snacks)
- 12 egg muffins, made with red peppers, spinach, onion and garlic, topped with tomato (for easy breakfast)
- Fresh pineapple and red peppers chopped up, for easy snacking.
- Homemade tomato sauce (or “gravy” as some of you fellow Italian peeps might call it), to use in a gluten-free turkey and veggie lasagna I’ll prep this week and cook next weekend. (Recipe is from MyHealthyDish Instagram feed. This is also a snapshot of her photo. If you don’t follow her yet, you should.)
Didn’t get to it today, but going to make these guilt-free little treats tomorrow to satisfy any cravings this week! Paleo Junior Mint Squares.
What’s in your fridge waiting to be cooked this week????
