Meal Plan Monday #13

Happy Meal Plan Monday, Readers!

Man! I can’t believe it’s August already?! What!?

Crazy how time goes by so fast. Anyways, it’s Monday so that means a whole new meal plan is up this week!

I was only planning on doing 5 meals this week but last night I was making pizza, homemade, for the first time and literally had to throw the first pizza away. I was MAD.

Mad at myself, because I know I can do better, and because I have made the dough before so, I decided that I will do an even BETTER pizza this weekend.

And if you are wondering, the 2nd pizza turned out pretty good! Just need to better my baking skills.

If I am working really hard at something and fail, I have to redeem myself or else I feel like I let myself down. Anyone else feel this way?

Anyways, as we have gotten busier with our schedules I appreciate meals that are a little simpler, quicker and just easier to make. So most of these meals will only take me about 20-30 minutes to make. Except for one of them.

I hope you enjoy these meals this week and either share them with your friends or make them yourselves!

Follow the fun we have on Instagram!

Monday // Sloppy Joe’s, Cinnamon-Honey Sweet Potatoes & Green Beans

I saw sloppy Joe’s somewhere in a picture or an add last week and thought, “Man, I haven’t made those in a long time!”

That’s usually how I come up with my meals. And I have a super yummy recipe for this that I got from a friend!

Tuesday // Crab Soup

One of my favorite cooking bloggers to follow is a site called “Once Upon A Chef” and this is one of her recipes!

It only takes about 20 minutes to make and sounds sooo good. I am super excited to make this for the first time!

Wednesday // Seasoned Catfish with roasted Broccoli and Thin Potatoes

I usually try and do some sort of seafood once or twice a week. So I am trying out catfish this time around. I don’t know that I have ever tried it? Maybe I have and just don’t remember.

Anyways, hopefully this is a good meal!

Thursday // Mac N Cheese with Grilled Chicken

This is hands down, my guilty pleasure meal. If there is ever a cheesy pasta on a menu at a restaurant, I really have to hold myself back to not get it.

Anyone else?!

Friday // Leftovers! The best kind of meal.

Saturday // Spicy Sweet Chicken Thighs with Fruit and Carrots

Okay, I may add some rice pilaf here to give this meal some hardiness but the fruit I will add is strawberries, mangoes, and peaches!

Sunday // Loaded Home-made Pizza Redemption Meal

Yes, here it is! This is my chance at redemption! I am just going to load the pizza up with bacon, sausage, ham, peppers, onions, cheese, herbs and spices and see how it turns out!


There you have it! Meals for this week. I hope you enjoyed them! Please share with your friends!

And remember, you can also Pin this post for later!

Thanks for reading!
