Meal Plan Monday- March 25

25 March 2013, 10:48



Happy Monday!

I think one of the key points to kicking off your Monday without dread is to have a meal plan in place. Or, at least an idea. Since we’ve started meal planning, there has been so much less pressure to use my brain for more than it’s needed for during the week. There is only room for so much, and my 2 year-old occupies 90% of it.

I’m pretty sure the pistacchios she just chucked all over the living room and kitchen floors will occupy the remaining 10%.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of food shopping at Whole Foods by myself. That’s like waking up to find that your husband took his man-cold to the room next door somewhere during the night. It’s a refreshing moment.

I stocked up and this is what’s hitting our dinner table this week!

Salmon steaks (I’ll make a spice rub to throw on them first, before lightly saut√©ing on a grill pan)
Roasted asparagus
Satueed bok choy
Roasted sweet potato

Casa Coelho (Don’t know what it is, but I hear it’s some kind of brown rice dish.)

Marinated steak skeweres (Sirloin tips marinated in some olive oil, a bit of worcestshire sauce, minced garlic, and Montreal steak seasoning)
Grilled veggie skewers of red pepper, onion chunk and cremini mushrooms. (I usually first marinate them in a bowl with a tiny bit of olive oil and minced garlic for about an hour before we grill them.)
Salad w/ avocado, olives, tomatoes, sunflower seeds & chia seeds w/ lemon/balsamic sprinkled on top for dressing

Casa Senecal (Not sure, but it will be delicious.:))


Tilapia tacos in lettuce shells w/ mango + avocado salsa. (Following My Healthy Dish’s recipe. The salsa is HERE and the taco recipe should be up on her site today–www.myhealthydish.com.)
Quinoa salad

Some lunches prepped for the week:

- Roasted chicken that’s been cooked already (SO easy to just throw some tomatoes, avocado and cheese cubes or over a salad for instant lunches)
- Escarole and beans soup (YUUUUMMMM. Make soups on Sunday night or Monday morning, if you’re home, to store for the week.)
- Veggie/egg/nut/kale chip/fruit platter (cut up your fruits/veggies on Sunday and stick in containers or bags. Hard boil your eggs- we hard boil 12-16 eggs every Sunday so it’s easy to grab-n-go for a snack or as part of a lunch. We also lay out a blanket in the living room on the floor and call this platter lunch, “Picnic lunch,” and kids easily get excited that they’re allowed to eat on the floor, so I think it definitely gets them more excited about eating whatever you put in front of them in this way.)

- ¬†Sushi rolls that I bought pre-made at the market. I do this sometimes for my 5 year-old, who would live on sushi and nothing else if we let her. She takes them to school and I don’t have to stress about making a lunch. Obviously, we can’t do this all the time b/c it’s just too costly, but every now and then, it’s a treat!

What’s on your menu this week??? LInk up over at I’m an Organizing Junkie!




  1. I'm making the best ever chicken wings tonight!! I will let you know how we like them. They have been marinating since last night!!!

    It all sounds delicious, but I am definitely coming over on Wednesday!!! We had baked tilapia last night, We're having turkey taxis tonight and the rest of the week I'm having veggies and chicken while dave fends for himself haha

  3. I can't believe I did the meal-planning thing when I was teaching and carting the kids all over the universe, but don't do it now as often as I should. Your menu has inspired to do a little more planning! xo!

    As always, i'm impressed and inspired by your meals! I Love the lunches too, we do similar things. The kids and I tend to just eat a bunch of cut-up fruit, veggies and cheeses. Thanks for sharing!

  5. The meals sound delish!! I love the idea of your picnic lunch...I need to do something like that more! We do eat cut up fruits & veggies, need to remember to boil eggs too!

  6. Heather @ Kraus House Mom March 25, 2013

    First of all, I'm jealous of the pic you posted of your fridge. My kids would have that half eaten by Monday afternoon. I also wish I could go to someone's house 2x a week. No one wants to feed Teddy. I need to start eating clean.

  7. I love sushi! Please pack some for my lunch, too :)

  8. Jennifer (Savor) March 26, 2013

    We love fish tacos and love to make a salsa using all kinds of leftover veggies. p.s. cant wait to hear what ends up being made at casa senecal on Thursday.
