Welcome back to the second week of our weekly meal plan, I hope you all had a great Valentines and Family Day weekend! It was pretty damn cold here in the Greater Toronto Area, so it was a pretty quiet weekend for us. Having not long ago moved to Ontario from Alberta one of my goals is to see as much as I can of the area. We were in Alberta for just over 3 years and my one regret is that I really didn’t see as much of the local area as I would have liked. You would think living the expat life would mean that I would be making the most of our time in Canada before we return to Australia but I am a home body at heart.
So this year I am determined to venture out of my comfort zone and go weekend exploring as much as I can. I’ve already got a list of places within 3 to 5 hours that I want to see and am working on a list of places slightly further area. So if you have any MUST SEE recommendations please pass them along!
Even though I will be wining and dining in Prince Edward County this weekend I wanted to keep my weekly meal plan going so if your at a a loss of ideas for meals this week, look no further, do I have a meal plan for you!
Weekly Meal Plan
Sunday: Pancakes – add in some vanilla for extra flavour!
Monday: Toast with almond butter and sliced banana
Tuesday: Scrambled eggs and toast – For 2 people, whisk together 3 eggs with a dash of milk and salt and pepper to taste. Heat up the fry pan with a dash of olive oil, add the egg mixture, stir frequently add in the cheese (optional). While the eggs are cooking, make your toast! Voila!
Wednesday: Almond butter, strawberry & banana overnight oats with chai – I love all of the recipes over at Ambitious Kitchen and this one is no exception. I use normal milk instead of Almond milk and regular rolled oats instead of gluten free.
Thursday: Scrambled eggs and toast – same as Tuesday!
Friday: Almond butter, strawberry & banana overnight oats with chai
Saturday: Whole egg, bacon and avocado quesadilla – This will be my first time trying this recipe but it looked too delicious not to add to the menu!
Sunday: Slow cooker lasagne served with mixed salad leaves – I like a good slow cooker meal on the weekends, so I can prep early and have it cooking away all day while I spend time with Little R.
Monday: Lo mein noodles – You know the best thing with this sort of dish, if you have leftover vegetables, you can substitute anything in and out that you want! Also I excluded the mint.
Tuesday: Chicken and sweet potato enchiladas served with mixed salad leaves – These are yummy and super simple! Especially if you buy pre cooked chicken, that part is up to you! If your cooking for little ones like I am be cautious of your use of chilli powder.
Wednesday: Thai green chicken curry – This recipe is good! Especially with the little bit of added sweetness form the sugar. Just a note I exclude the green onions and cilantro but include zucchini and frozen peas. Oh and don’t forget the rice!
Thursday: Baked tilapia with garlic breadcrumbs served with mixed salad leaves.
Friday & Saturday: We will either have some takeout of make the most of any leftovers hanging around in the fridge!
As usual, lunch for me is always leftovers or just scrounging through the fridge for something!
Last week I wasn’t too impressed with my printable meal plan, I think that you can get the same information from within this post. So I am going to continue to work on the meal plan and come back to it when I am happier with the product. However, I still believe creating a shopping list to go with the above meal plan is helpful. So for all your shopping needs, please see this weeks shopping list to match!
