Weekly Eats

We are back from a whirlwind week in Charlotte and Atlanta and we were hit hard with reality when we woke up to a fresh blanket of snow! Maybe my blood grew thinner while I was at home because returning to 35 degree weather last night was a harsh "welcome back!" Compared to last winter's tundra like weather on an almost daily basis, this winter has been a walk in the park.

Being on vacation is always a fun excuse to indulge in extra treats but now that we are settled back at home, we're back to our regularly scheduled eating program. Lean protein, yummy salads, and lots of flavor!

Meal planning is one of my favorite things to start off a fresh week with. I have found that it works really well to plan out seven days of meals in order to minimize trips to the grocery store. I am slowly learning to enjoy my hour or so of time in the grocery store each week to ensure that we have a stocked fridge with all of the makings of a delicious week. Today, I'm linking up with sweet Molly, from Duchess of Fork, who has been sharing her weekly menus and I thought I would join in and do the same. It's always entertaining to see what everyone else in blogland is cooking up in their kitchens and it's a great way to add more recipes to my growing list!

Monday- Perfect Roast Chicken, Avocado, Tomato & Mozzarella Salad

Tuesday- Turkey Meatloaf, roasted asparagus or roasted green beans

Wednesday- Salmon, grilled peach baby greens salad

Thursday- Eat up leftovers!

Friday- Bunless burgers, sweet potato fries

Check out Molly's post for more great meal ideas and check the comments section to see what others are making as well! If you have your meals planned out, too, leave your weekly eats in my comments section below.

Happy Monday!


  1. I love turkey meatloaf! Your version looks awesome with all the peppers. I usually just do the Lipton Onion Soup version.

    1. I love adding peppers to my meatloaf. I usually have green peppers on hand but not always the red, yellow, and orange so I just use whatever I have. Sometimes I add chopped mushrooms to the mix for a little something different and that's great, too! I need to grab some Lipton Onion Soup so that I can make that recipe you recommended!

  2. Do you have a printable version of your menu planner and grocery list? I love the idea of having it all in one place and I think I would be more apt to plan if it was so organized! If so, and you're willing to share, my email is
    Thank you!
