Meal planning and prepping tips
If you're new here...
Every week, I share a free meal plan for you to use the following week. You'll have seven main dish recipes, along with a few extras and of course dessert.
Typically the weekly meal plans are named by number of the week and date. For example, if the plan is for the first week of January, I'll name it Weekly Meal Plan 1 - Jan 3-9. Next year the plans will be updated for the corresponding dates and tasty new recipes!
Don't forget - if you have a busy day and plan on eating out, just drop a day off the menu and adjust the meal plan to fit YOUR busy life!
Here are some shortcuts and tips for this week's menu!
- Leftovers of the lasagna soup freeze great!
- For the Nicoise Salad boil the potatoes and green beans on Sunday and refrigerate. That way they will be nice & cold on Monday night for dinner!
- Teriyaki Chicken makes a great sandwich for lunch - you may consider doubling that recipe!
- Goulash is always super yummy and another meal that even tastes better the next day! AND leftovers freeze great!
- Cupcakes surprisingly freeze well! Freeze individually first, then wrap well and freeze up to three months. Oh and yes, you can decorate them before freezing. The frosting freezes great. It's more about wrapping them well once they are frozen hard. That way they will keep well extendedly.
