Meal Plan Monday #113

I have been looking up new recipes. I really enjoy Italian sausage with spinach or kale, and I like making spinach and parmesan orzo. I came across a recipe for spinach and sausage rice bowls, and I plan to replace the rice with orzo. I also found a recipe for salmon-BLT sliders, which I am turning into full-size seared tuna sandwiches. I have a great-tasting, super-easy recipe for tuna, and putting it on a sandwich with bacon, lettuce, and avocado aioli sounds amazing to me! 

Sunday:  Sausage and Spinach Orzo (based on this recipe) with Salad

Monday:  Black Bean & Rice Burritos with Grilled Peppers and Onions and Corn Salsa

Tuesday:  Seared Tuna BLTs with Avocado Aioli (based on this recipe)

Wednesday:  Tutorial Night Take Out

Thursday:  Bacon-Wrapped Burgers on Pretzel Rolls with Sweet Potato Fries

Friday:  Date Night! Darren's Pick!

Meal Plan Monday #112

It has really gotten cooler here. We decided a couple of months ago that we were going to try meatless Mondays, but I keep forgetting! This week, I remembered. Last week, we got some crispy jalapeƱos to go on a salad. There were delicious, and we thought they would make a great topping for macaroni and cheese, so that's going to be our meatless Monday this week.

Sunday:  Pepperoni Pizza Rollups with Salad

Monday:  Macaroni and Cheese with Crispy Jalapeno Topping

Tuesday:  Breakfast for Dinner! Bacon, Eggs, Grits, and Biscuits

Wednesday:  Fish Tacos with Cabbage and Avocado

Thursday:  Darren's Fried Rice

Friday:  Date Night! Lib's Pick!
