A lot of people expressed interest in my weekly menu post last week so I think I'm going to try to make this a weekly thing. I like to plan out our meals for the week on Mondays so I'll try to post them at the beginning of the week so you can follow along, if you want. If you have some favorites that you make, please share them in the comments. It's like a recipe exchange - minus the annoying chain e-mail!
A few notes:
- the meat sauce recipe makes a BIG batch. I like to portion it into about 4 different containers and freeze them for later meals (i.e. lasagna, over pasta, with bread sticks and a salad).
- I always like to give myself one extra fast/semi-homemade meal a week for days when something comes up or I'm just too exhausted to make the meal that I planned for that night. This week, I planned to do the MorningStar black bean burgers from Costco (frozen) topped with a poached egg and some pre-shredded cabbage (I buy those bags at Trader Joe's but you can shred it yourself) sauteed in a little coconut oil and garlic. It's delicious.
