Happy 2021! My first blog of the new year, and first blog in months! (I’m hoping to change that in 2021!!)

I wanted to start out the new year, with a little organization when it comes to meal time. Here are our plans for each night starting Monday, plus a grocery list including all the ingredients I’ll need and some other staple items we eat all week.


Monday – Salmon with roasted broccoli and brown rice. I bake my salmon and season it with butt rub and a little brown sugar for that spicy/sweet taste. The broccoli I’ll steam and use 90 second brown rice.

Taco Tuesday – a weekly staple…lean ground beef with taco seasoning, in a bowl with shredded lettuce and/or rice, black beans, sauteed peppers/onion, salsa, avocado, tortilla chips…anything that sounds good to you.

Wednesday – I’m going to marinade chicken breasts in a balsamic mixture (balsamic, olive oil, garlic, etc.) and bake in the oven. Bacon & brussels, no better combo, and I’ll throw some sweet potatoes in the crock pot.

Thursday – One pan, the best kind of meal! Chopped zucchini, squash, peppers, onions and Bilinski chicken sausages all roast in the oven. Then I’ll toss them in Rao’s for a low carb dinner. (I’ll make noodles for more carbs for the kids.)

That’s what’s on the menu for us this coming week. Feel free to use our meals or come up with your own. Here is a .pdf of the document I used to get organized. Print it off and fill it out.
