I don’t know if my family is just agreeing with me to shut me up or actually converting over to meatless meals because I will not give up on this mission. However, I am happy to report that so far they have been very agreeable to what I have been trying. Since they ultimately are my guinea pigs at dinner time, I try and keep my new meatless recipes to our weekend dinners so we always have the option of ordering out if they fail. So far, we have never ordered out…success!!! And I am still getting over the shock of my son trying my veggie burgers and eating two of them without complaining, gagging, or throwing them out. I even got a,”hey mom, you can make these again.” YEEEHHHH!!!!!
So once again, here is what we enjoyed for meals this week.
Saturday: homemade veggie burgers and side salads (meatless)
Sunday: pita chicken and veggie sandwiches, side salads
Monday: beef stroganoff over pasta with roasted green beans and carrots
Wednesday: ground turkey and pasta stove top casserole and sauteed zucchini and onions
Thursday: grilled cheese sandwiches and homemade tomato basil soup (meatless)
Sunday meal prep for the upcoming week included:
A new banana muffin recipe and I also threw together Sunday nights meatballs so I would not have to prepare them later that evening.
I pre chopped all our veggies for the week, cooked up chicken breast for wraps which my son takes for his lunch, and made up 6 veggie egg cups for a fast breakfast before I head to the gym at 4:45 a.m..
The only thing I did not do for the upcoming week is make something for my lunches but I know the menu I have planned will offer plenty of leftovers and this is what I plan to eat during the week.
