Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of January 1, 2018

Can you believe it is already 2018?  Neither can I.

For Christmas,  I got myself a meal planner.  As I mentioned in my review of 2017, I am going to begin a weight loss challenge/ fitness challenge at work starting on Friday.  I want to get a jump start on the challenge so I got myself a Skinnytaste Meal Planner.  Actually Mom and the Wee One got it me for Christmas.

It is neat because it has a spot for the meal plan (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and then an actually tracker of what you have eaten with a spot for calories or Weight Watchers points.  The planner also has a spot for a grocery list.

There is also a spot for an exercise tracker which is great.

I’m hoping this meal planner will help me with my goals.

Every year, we have sauerkraut and pork for dinner on New Year’s Day  so that is on the menu for Monday.

If you look at the planner, you can see what I have planned to cook for the week.

A couple of the dinners are from the freezer.  I made freezer kits for my slow cooker a few weeks ago so I’m going to utilize those for a couple times during the week.

Two of the dinners will be made in my instant pot while four of the meals will be made in my slow cooker.  I love using those two appliances to help me make sure dinner is on the table in a reasonable time.

After I planned the meal, I went to the Kroger Clicklist to order my groceries for the week.  With the cold weather we are currently having, it is easier to order the food.  Associates will then bring the food out to your car.  Convenient during these cold winter months.

So without any further ado, here is my menu for the week.

Monday

Pork and sauerkraut, roasted potatoes, honey glazed carrots

Tuesday

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken with black beans and rice

Wednesday

Instant Pot Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Thursday

Taco Soup w/ Cornbread

Friday

Mexican Pinto Beans w/ Cornbread

Saturday

Leftovers

Sunday

Garlic Mint Pork – Sides to be determined

 

Breakfasts – Hard boiled eggs, fruit, baked oatmeal, omelet muffins

Lunch – Artichoke and shrimp quinoa bowl, Cobb Salad, Yogurt, Applesauce, Salmon Cakes

Happy eating,
Traci
