Don’t you just love this super cute menu planner my friend Rachel Mahan designed? It comes in a few colors and you can get one of your own at her Etsy shop! You can put it in a frame or laminate it and fill it in with a dry-erase marker. And this week only, Bet On Dinner readers can even get 10% off with the coupon code BET10. How fun is that?? Thanks, Rachel!
I’m a big proponent of meal planning to alleviate dinnertime stress, so welcome to a new type of post – the Meal Plan of the Month! Like I mentioned in this post on meal planning, I usually plan and shop for 5 meals per week so that if our plans change, I don’t end up with food going to waste. This week, we had dinner with friends one night and a leftovers night in addition to these meals.
#1 – Jalapeno-cheddar turkey burgers, guacamole, coconut oil roasted sweet potato bites, steam-in-the-bag broccoli
#3 – Pork tenderloin, roasted potatoes and butternut squash
(recipe coming this week!), steamed & pureed cauliflower (no, that’s not two kinds of potatoes on my plate – I wish! – and it’s just seasoned with salt and pepper)
#4 – beef and broccoli stir-fry (this was a new to me recipe, and it was good, but not make-it-again good), brown rice
#5 – Chipotle. Ahh, Chipotle. Thanks for existing. See this post for my other favorite takeout spots!
It’s cracking me up how much broccoli we ate this week – I think I meant to have green beans with our burgers but we didn’t have any.
So what’s on your menu this week? I’m always on the lookout for dinner inspiration!0
