Meal Planning for the week

Good morning everyone! How are you guys doing?  My weekend has been great so far and I’ll keep it short and sweet because I’m off to go for a run before attending a boat show with my husband (not sure how I got talked into that one ;)) before we watch the Super Bowl tonight!  I don’t love football, but I sure do like the commercials. 


While I love to cook and even plan food for a party, I do not love the process of meal planning each week for my little family.  When I make my grocery list, I do think about what ingredients I need for a couple meals, but then the rest is just random things I want and things I see on sale while actually shopping.  That is why most of our dinners end up being a hodgepodge of vegetables/salads/protein.  While I am completely fine with this, my husband prefers more well-planned balanced meals.  

So in honor of trying to please my husband ;), here is our meal plan for the week:

Sunday: Spaghetti squash with pesto and grilled chicken/shrimp

Monday: Tacos (tofu for me, ground turkey for the hubs)


Tuesday: Veggie Cauliflower Fried Rice (recipe to come!)


Wednesday: Grilled salmon with roasted broccoli and sauteed mushrooms

Thursday: Burgers (veggie for me, meat for the hubs) with sweet potato fries

Friday: Out/wing it

Saturday: Out/wing it 

Almost all of our meals include a big salad too and some popcorn or dark chocolate chips for dessert! 

I don’t follow many recipes, but am happy to help if you have any questions about ingredients I use, how I cook things, or substitutions you may need!  I hope this helps inspire some of your meals for this week! 


  1. Do you meal plan each week or wing it?
  2. What is a favorite repeat meal you make each week?
  3. Do you like spaghetti squash?  Have a good recipe for it?
