I honestly don’t have a huge amount to say for this week. I made a few new recipes, all of which turned out delicious! This week was a week of firsts…First time cooking with mushrooms and first time cooking with pizza dough. I’m a little behind on my skills, huh?
Now on to the meal prep! Make sure to check out the new recipe at the bottom!
That’s it for the week! I’m having a lot of fun trying out new recipes right now. Mixing it up is really making my meal prep so much more enjoyable! Do you do anything to make your meal prep fun or more enjoyable? I love cooking, but hours in the kitchen can get a little monotonous. Trying out new recipes adds some excitement for me!
This week has a few really good new recipes, but sadly not quite as good of pictures as I usually try for. With the trip to the ER right after this meal prep got done (check out the beginning of this post if you are confused), I didn’t get the photos taken until about halfway through the week. I’m sure you aren’t surprised to hear that the delay meant a decent amount of the food was mostly gone!
So without further delay, enjoy this week’s meal prep!
I did have a funny incident with this soup! I was separating it into containers, picked up a mason jar filled up for the freezer and it split in half! Soup everywhere! The dogs were pretty happy about that. To say I was a bit startled would be an understatement! I got the mess all cleaned up and got back to cooking, but it just goes to show that not everything goes smoothly each weekend! 🙂
And that’s it for this week! Make sure to check out the recipes below!
Ever have one of those days where everything is going perfect…until right at the end, when life decides to throw a curveball? Sunday was one of those days. I promise there is a good reason for this post being a day late!
I seem to have been even more accident-prone than normal lately and yesterday was no exception! After I had finished up my meal prep and was making a post-workout smoothie, I managed to cut my ring finger on my right hand rather deeply. After some wavering, Boyfriend and I decided to go to the ER to be on the safe side. The second ER visit in two months!
It’s a good thing we did. I ended up needing 5 stitches and a tetanus shot as well! By the time we got home I was exhausted and didn’t have the energy to write and publish my post. So here it is, just a day late!
And that’s it for this week! Hopefully there will be no more ER-related delays anytime soon! I’m getting pretty tired of being continually injured for roughly the past two months! 🙂
What are you cooking this week? Did you do any meal prep this weekend? Any new recipes?
Hey everyone! So….you know how a couple weeks ago I said I didn’t see myself changing up my salads anytime soon? I was wrong 🙂 I don’t know if it’s the limited activity level or what, but I definitely had the itch to try out some new stuff this week! Since I made multiple types of salads, I have put together some infographic-style pictures to break down how I put our salads together.
And now for the salads!
And that’s it for this week! What are you cooking up this week? Anything new?
Hey everyone and welcome back for this week’s meal prep! This week was pretty quick with a lot of really tasty dishes, so let’s get to it!
As always, our salads are pretty much a requirement. I’m still in love with the Buffalo Shredded Chicken, so I don’t think our salads will be changing up anytime soon, though if you have any other great protein sources for Jar Salads I would love to give them a try!
I made enough breakfast burritos to last us a little over two weeks! We have just recently changed up the ingredients a little and I love the difference of adding in sautéed onion and bell peppers.
As always, the Sweet Potato Banana Bites are a favorite snack. I would love to hear your ideas for some new snacks to add in to the rotation!
Hey everyone! Welcome to another meal prep Sunday! I’m sorry for my mostly-absence for the past two weeks. My injury is mostly better, but it really did throw my schedule and plans completely off. Come September, I will be back on top of things and better than ever!
With that out of the way, onward to this week’s meal prep 🙂
Not a very big prep this week. All of the regulars are there: Peanut Butter Banana Oat Muffins, Sweet Potato Banana Bites, Breakfast Burritos and Buffalo Shredded Chicken Salads.
For our main courses, we went pretty basic and oddly, all rice based this week. That wasn’t really intentional, but we did enjoy it! Two of the dishes were no recipe, thrown together dishes: Chicken Stir-fry and Cabbage Veggie Saute If you want the recipe, let me know and I will try to recreate it. They were delicious! We also tried a new recipe this week: Saucy Pork Chop Skillet. We like pork chops, but I can never seem to find new ways to prepare them. This one seems like a winner!
That’s it for this week! What are you cooking in your kitchen?
Hey everyone! Welcome to another installment of my weekly meal prep. I am very excited to say that unlike last week, this week was much better and more fun for me! I don’t know what was going on with me last week, but I’m glad it’s over!
This week was pretty fun for me, including one of my favorite stews 🙂 I know that it’s a bit warm out for a heavier stew, but I saw it when I was deciding on the menu for this week and it just sounded too tasty to pass up. Check out the recipe at the bottom of the post! Continue reading “Sunday Meal Prep”→
Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s meal prep! This week was a bit weird for me. While normally I enjoy meal prep and cooking in general, there are some days where it is just a chore. This Sunday was one of those days. Not only did it feel like a chore, but it felt like it took much longer than it actually did. I’m just thankful that it was a relatively small amount of cooking to be done, instead of one of my marathon days. I pushed my way through to the end and was very glad to be done.
Do you remember the first dish you cooked? I do. Up until I was around 20 yrs old, I couldn’t cook. I could make pasta, but that was pretty much it. Then one day, kinda homesick and missing my mom’s wonderful cooking, I decided to make her jambalaya. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking, but I went out, got all the ingredients, and got to cooking. It took forever! I was so slow at everything! Continue reading “Sunday Meal Prep”→
