One of my goals for 2019 (we’ll talk more about this in a later post) is to post more consistently here! I know that, for me personally, seeing meal plans of other bloggers is inspiring. It helps to give me ideas of what I might want to serve that week.
And I like to think that I’m pretty inspiring, haha.
So, ANYWAY, I’m a bit early (for me), but I wanted to post the first meal plan of 2019, so that you might all be inspired. Also, tomorrow I have to figure out just what planners I’ll be using for the new year, do my weekly planning, prepare our food for New Year’s Eve, and have my mother-in-law over for dinner.
On to the food!
This week, almost all of our recipes are in these two beauties. The waffle one is from Christmas this year, from my Mom, to go with the waffle maker she bought for me too. I’m excited to try it out for more than waffles (we had those this morning – delish!).
12/31: New Year’s Eve party with family – we’re taking a sausage queso dip and some meatballs made in the Crockpot (made with chili sauce and grape jelly).
1/1: Baked ziti from the Pioneer Woman book, and a salad.
1/2: Chicken Milanese, buttery pasta noodles, and lemony green beans, all recipes from P.W.
1/3: Baked lemon & browned butter chicken thighs, stuffles (from Will It Waffle), and a salad.
1/4: Chicken with a mustard cream sauce (P.W.), roasted carrots with vinaigrette (P.W.), and a salad. We’ll be using chicken thighs for this, and removing the skin and bone.
1/5: Waffled chicken fingers (W.I.W.), thin fries (P.W.), and a salad.
1/6: Chicken enchiladas (P.W.), and Mexican rice made in the pressure cooker. We’ll be using leg quarters for the filling in this one.
This is the insert that I use in my main planner for our weekly meal plans. I did screw up and mixed up Tuesday and Wednesday while I was filling it out, but I just crossed it out on my sheet so I know. I love these inserts because they have a grocery list on the back, and I’m able to jot down something we need as it pops up (we have a more organized list for when we go shopping). If you use a Happy Planner, grab a pack of these – they are AMAZING!
So, are you meal planning in 2019? Let me know and share your plans if you want!
