Welcome to this week’s meal plan! In each week’s meal plan I’ll share with you what I plan to cook with pictures and links to my inspiration (or recipes similar to the ones I use). Please note that I don’t always follow these recipes, so use them at your own discretion! I will usually make note of the ingredients I use or what I may have done differently when I post my nightly dinner pic on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. So be sure to follow me, if you’re interested in seeing how my versions come out!
So here’s what’s for dinner this week:
Michael Angelo’s Frozen Lasagna
My colonoscopy is scheduled for tomorrow, so I’m on a clear liquid diet today. My food choices for the next few hours include water, chicken broth, orange Jell-O, Gatorade, herbal tea, and Sprite. Joy! Since I won’t be able to eat dinner tonight, I bought a frozen lasagna so I don’t have to cook, but my family can still eat a good meal. I like Michael Angelo’s frozen lasagna because it tastes just like homemade, it is made with all natural ingredients, and it costs less than $10. #Winner! I’ll try to have a good attitude watching them eat their deliciousness while I sip on chicken broth and orange Jell-O.
I’ve never experienced a colonoscopy before, but I’m assuming I won’t feel like making dinner, coaching cheer practice or going to Zumba afterwards. I’m assuming I’ll spend the rest of my day on the couch catching up on all my favorite television shows, so I bought a couple of $3.99 frozen pizzas from Aldi. One is Chicken Parmesan and the other is Meatball. I just hope I’m still able to eat pizza after I find out what’s wrong with me!
Orange Rosemary Glazed Salmon with Quinoa and Corn
I try to make salmon for dinner every week. It’s one of my favorite foods and it’s super healthy. I usually either pan fry it or throw it in the oven covered in soy sauce, but I’ve been trying to branch out a little. I love orange flavored anything, so I can’t wait to try this orange glazed salmon! I’ll be pairing it with quinoa and corn, 2 things I wouldn’t mind mixing with it since I almost always just combine my foods together. You’d never know I was one of those kids who didn’t even want my foods to touch! LOL!
Some of my mom friends have raved about this recipe, which oddly enough, I pinned a while before it got so popular, but I have yet to try it. I finally ate all of the green lentils in my pantry, so I’m gonna use red instead. The only thing I need for this soup that I don’t have on hand is a can of diced tomatoes!
Cabbage is one of my favorite foods! I just love it! I’ve made a meal similar to this one where I mixed cabbage, onions, and sausage, but I’ve never thrown potatoes into the mix. I just so happen to love potatoes, so I know I’ll love this version even more!
Beef stew is a popular meal in our household, as is any kind of Asian food. Why not combine them both?! I’m really looking forward to seeing how this one comes out! I’ve never cooked daikon before (yeah, those aren’t potatoes)!
Sticky Thai Peanut Orange Chicken with Rice and Broccoli
Like I said, we love Asian food! I’ve never made a peanut sauce before, but I’ve eaten it, so I know I’ll enjoy it! I’ll be pairing the chicken with rice and broccoli because, like I said, I love to mix my food together!
