WEEKLY MEAL PLAN, MARCH WK 1

After a couple week hiatus (courtesy of a crazy week followed by the flu) I’m so ready to jump back into our weekly meal planning and kick March off with some momentum. In addition to getting organized and coming out of our winter hibernation mode, I’m hoping to get a head start on spring cleaning (i.e. purge) so once all the spring sunshine, park dates, and baseball games show up I’ll be ready to play…!

Here’s what’s on the menu this week…

…side note: if you make nothing else from this meal plan, promise you’ll try the Korean steak bowls? I left a few notes next to the link below to help make it more kid friendly.

m | philly cheesesteak, french dip, paninis, tuna melt, grilled cheese (these are so good!), or pick up jersey mikes, jimmy johns, etc.

t | KOREAN STEAK BOWLS we grilled the marinated flank steak and omitted the Korean Sunchang and chile paste to make it little kid (and me) friendly and it was sooooo good you guys have to try this recipe! The entire time I was eating it I was thinking, “I should take a pic and share on stories” but it was too good to put down, lol.

w | eat out or maybe just some good old-fashioned boxed mac and cheese action with a side salad and rotisserie chicken :)

th | baked potato bar (topping ideas: sour cream, cheese, bacon, salami, cooked steak from tuesday night or any leftover meat, broccoli, chopped spinach or arugula, avocado, tomatoes, salsa, chives, butter, salt and pepper…)

f | diy calzones, for a fun twist on pizza night! make or grab dough from papa murphy’s or other restaurant/store and set out all the fillings, sauces, cheese (include ricotta), meat, veggies…

sa | sheet pan chicken fajitas

su | pad thai (or grab takeout)

breakkie | shared a fun way to take smoothies and waffles to go in the “eat” story highlights, so many yummy egg bake options here, add sprinkles to cereal or yogurt for a quick upgrade!

lunch | more simple twist on classics for lunch!

snack | pantry party mix is a great way to use up snacks, and we love making grape caterpillar kabobs (add candy eyes) and energy bites!

Would love to hear from you about these weekly plans! All recipe suggestions and feedback is welcome!

xo, Rae

    Sandwich kabobs?! That’s a really fun idea – and we need some fresh school lunch ideas by this time of the year! Do you just stack things like bread, lunch meat, cheese…lettuce, tomato??

      yes, exactly! stack whatever they would normally want on their deli sandwich but sub sliced bread for french, pita, ciabatta or other stiff bread. have fun! xo
