Meal planning is hard. Packing lunch five days a week and cooking for a husband who likes a lot of variety and does not like healthy food while maintaining a budget, is like balancing on a tightrope. This week I decided to use a new source for dinner recipe ideas and found each one on Pinterest. My qualifications for a recipe are:
Minimally processed, whole ingredients
Can be cooked in 45 minutes or less (for a weekday meal)
Every meal has some kind of vegetables
For really busy days, I always have a salad made up for the entire week. I do that on Sunday when I have time to wash and chop all of the vegetables. I make large batches, even though I cook for two, so we always have leftovers on hand.
Uncle Sam’s Cereal
Coffee black x 2
This came out amazing. The smell of the roasting squash was delicious and the pecans on top added just the right crunch.
More string cheese.
This soup was very tasty and really quick to make. The only change I would make is to lighten up on the salt. I was able to find a whole wheat cheese tortellini which was quite good. J usually complains about whole wheat pasta and he was not able to tell.
Tuna Sandwich with mixed greens on Ezekial Bread
