Things to Eat - Seven Week Meal Plan (mid-November through the end of December)
Something is very wrong with this photo. Oh well, the holidays are always a little crazy.
MONDAY - Chipotle.
TUESDAY - Greek egg soup (via Epicurious), pierogies, and kale chips. I make this soup for lunch a lot, so I was hoping the whole family would like it, but no such luck. Oh well, it's still a personal fave.
WEDNESDAY - Dinner at a friend's house. Dan feeds himself and the kids.
THURSDAY - Dan makes steak and potatoes.
FRIDAY - Leftovers.
SATURDAY - Dan makes steamed dumplings and potatoes.
SUNDAY - Dan makes fish.
MONDAY - Italian sausage stew with potatoes and cabbage (via Three Many Cooks). This is one of our favorite fall/winter meals. So good.
TUESDAY - Polenta pizzas and cauliflower/corn tacos (both recipes from The Forest Feast). I'm in love with these tacos.
WEDNESDAY - Chili with fritos (via Cravings). The kids were so excited to have fritos I was nervous they'd forget to eat any of the chili.
THURSDAY - Thanksgiving at our house, Dan makes an amazing feast.
FRIDAY - Dinner out with friends at Tupelo Honey.
SATURDAY - Leftovers
SUNDAY - Dan makes steak and black bean fajitas (and they were crazy good).
MONDAY - Eggplant pasta sauce and spaghetti (via Food52 Genius Recipes: 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook) & "Use A Spoon" chopped salad (via Food52 Genius Recipes: 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook). The kids didn't love the eggplant, but they all (somewhat shockingly) loved the salad. I'll call that a win.
