Monday Meal Plan (Week of August 13)

I love reading recipe blogs and perusing Pinterest for meal ideas–but the act of meal planning? Not so much. I know it can be hard to come up with (and stick to!) a menu for the week, so I wanted to share my weekly menus. My meal plans run Monday-Sunday.

Happy Monday! I spent the weekend camping out near Silver Lake. It was a beautiful weekend with perfect weather and good company. Today’s going to be a little bit rough in terms of getting back into my routine! I’ve got to at least make an effort, though.

Whenever I come home from a trip (even a short one), I need a bowl of ice cream to help with the transition back to reality 😉

This week’s menu is pretty simple.

Monday:  I need an easy meal tonight, so I think I’ll make these Chickpea “Tuna” Sandwiches from Jessica in the Kitchen.

Tuesday: Yum: This Kung Pao Tempeh from Hello Veggie is full of veggies and looks delicious!

Wednesday: My husband isn’t going to be happy to see this on the menu, and it’s probably a weird choice for a hot week, but this Baked Spaghetti with Kale, Mushrooms, and Tofu Ricotta from Hummusapien just sounds so good to me right now.

Thursday: I have a big batch of quinoa to use up, so I think I’ll marinade some tofu in this Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce from Cookie and Kate to go with it.

Friday:
Leftovers

Saturday: Leftovers or out–there’s a new (to us) Mediterranean restaurant we want to try.

Sunday: I think we’ll keep things easy breezy and grill burgers.

BONUS: This iced coffee with coconut water from The Toasted Sprinkle is SO GOOD. It’s the only way I want to make my iced coffee.

Tell me: What are you making this week?
