My meal plan this past week was pretty simple really. I started off on Saturday by taking out the meat from the freezer to thaw and picking up one item at the store. Some guacamole.
Sunday morning I started out by slicing up the steak I had thawed as well as half an onion and a bell pepper. I tossed all of this with a half packet of leftover fajita seasoning and a half packet of leftover taco seasoning. Into a container and then into the refrigerator.
I put together some vegetarian lasagna. I made up two smaller pans so I could bake them in the convection oven. One pan went into the oven to bake for our Sunday supper and the other one into the refrigerator for later in the week.

Next I browned up some ground beef and put everything into a large pot that I needed to make the Taco Soup. Once it was done I transferred it to a casserole dish, let it cool and then the refrigerator.
That was it! It went together super quick and easy and the girls didn't even get a chance to help. But they didn't really seem to mind.
Sunday - We enjoyed the lasagna and a little Caesar salad of romaine, feta and croutons.
|Oh my gosh! These were good!|
Monday - I cooked up the fajitas in a pan and heated up some street sized corn tortillas I had leftover in the refrigerator. I served them with guacamole, salsa and sour cream on the side. It came together super quick and was an easy to prepare supper.
Tuesday - I placed the soup into the pan to heat up for supper. My oldest made a pan of cornbread and baked it in the convection oven and the youngest made a salad. By the time the cornbread finished baking the soup was heated through and the salad was ready.
Wednesday - As soon as I got home I put the extra pan of lasagna into the convection oven to bake. I served that with leftover salad.

Thursday - I ended up taking the youngest to the orthodontist after work which resulted in a sore mouth for her. I had a migraine and a queasy tummy so the idea of making the salmon for supper wasn't settling well. We opted for boxed macaroni and cheese which my oldest made up. Simple and bland and easy for the youngest to chew. It is good to have back up items in the pantry for just such an ocassion.
Friday - The girls and I prepared cheese quesadillas for supper. We had plenty of leftover guacamole and salsa to go with them. It was a quick and simple supper to prepare and pretty tasty too.
Saturday - Saturday we had company for supper. We took a vote on whether or not to prepare the salmon we did not fix on Thursday or do something else. The girls wanted more Taco Soup so I was out voted. I put on a pot of that in the slow cooker and the oldest made more cornbread while the youngest made another beautiful salad. I put together a tiramisu for dessert and I'll be sharing that recipe with you soon. It is a good one! Our dinner was delicious and definitely company worthy.
Even with a little bump in the road with Thursday and two of us not feeling well the meal prepping and planning has proved even more to be successful. Definitely we have some flexibility here if we need it and this past week we did. I am very pleased with how it turned out.
