Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday! I hope you are enjoying an extra day off, maybe you are spending it with friends & family or enjoying the great outdoors!

Maybe your husband has a 4 day weekend and since you rarely stay in town on long weekends you are about to pull your hair out because of all the “togetherness.” And maybe when you try to go bowling for the first time in 5 years (because you live in a town with only 3 movie screens) and the bowling alley attendant tells you “no,” you resort to an Amazon movie rental and wine on the couch.

Only me?

Well, hopefully you find this week’s meal plan more exciting than my weekend! I included a mix of past favorites and new recipes. Click on the links and you will be directed to the original recipe.

Monday: Channa Masala from Eat Live Run

Tuesday: Garlic Turkey Burgers with Blood Orange, Beet & Fennel Salad

Wednesday: Baked chicken breasts marinated in this sauce with Baby Bok Choy, Avocado and Cashew salad

Thursday: Lemon and dill baked salmon served with Charred Brussels Sprouts with Almonds

Friday: Thai Chicken Pizza; we will swap naan for a gluten-free pizza crust mix from my local grocery store

Saturday: Tortilla-less Crispy Shrimp Tacos (minus the flour) and maybe some corn tortilla chips with homemade refried beans and guacamole

Sunday: We try to challenge ourselves once a week to move out of our cooking comfort zone; this week’s adventure is shaping up to be homemade Pad Thai. We are pretty excited but have not committed to a recipe yet so stay tuned.

Have you tried these Oatmeal Peanut Butter bars? Delish! I made them for our cheat this weekend and we took a couple with us on a 9 mile hike as our “energy bars.” Maybe I’m stretching that whole energy bar thing a bit but after hiking 2,500 feet up a mountain I felt like I deserved a little treat! I substituted almond flour and gluten-free all-purpose flour in place of regular and cut back on the sugar. They were seriously delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great week!
