Hi guys! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was jam packed with holiday shopping, organizing our apartment, and planning for a Hanukkah party we had with friends last night. The holidays are in full swing and I couldn’t be happier! I love this time of year.
Keeping with my November goals, I am going strong with meal planning this week. The last two weeks I fell off track because we were away for Thanksgiving and came back in the middle of the week last week, so from Wednesday – Friday we pretty much ate whatever we had in the freezer / what was easy to pick up. Not the best, but that’s why I made a point to stay on track this week.
Here’s this week’s meal plan:
Sunday (last night): Hanukkah Party with friends! (Chicken, Challah, Kugel, Latkes, Brussels Sprouts + more!)
Monday: Thai Green Curry with Shrimp and Kale + Black Rice
Peeled and deveined shrimp was on sale at Whole Foods, so I bought 2 lbs. and will freeze what we don’t use for this recipe.
Tuesday: Orange and Tomato Simmered Chicken Thighs with Whole Wheat Couscous
I am planning on adding some romaine to this recipe based on the reviews I read.
Thursday: Grilled Chicken with Thai Basil Salad
Friday: Caramelized Onion, Olive, Goat Cheese Whole Wheat Pizza
We have leftover homemade whole wheat pizza dough in our freezer, so this should be an easy one to throw together.
Saturday: Slow Cooker French Onion Soup + Sweet Potato and Apple Potato Pancakes
Keeping with the Hanukkah festivities, I am going to try a variation of the classic latke recipe and use sweet potatoes and apples!
Many of the recipes above I haven’t cooked before, so I am excited to add some new dishes to this week’s dinner menu. If any of them turn out well, I will be sure to make them again and photograph them for you guys.
Hope you have a great Monday!
