Meal Plans Made Simple #2

Meal Plans Made Simple

Time to plan out this week’s menu! I’m gonna go ahead and tell you to get excited because in addition to delicious ideas from Sugar Dish Me and Lemons for Lulu, we have added in some dinnertime inspiration from some of our favorite blogs! Everything we are sharing this week is still on the lighter side because, um… January. But from the looks of all these dishes you would never know it.

MONDAY

Skinny-Taco-Salad-11

 Skinny Taco Salad from Gimme Some Oven

This salad is so loaded with color and veggies and includes a recipe for Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette that I can’t wait to try!

 

TUESDAY

Crispy-Dijon-Cheddar-Chicken-3

Crispy Dijon Cheddar Chicken from Sugar Dish Me

This chicken is anything but boring! AND it’s been lightened up! Oven fried with low fat cheese and a from scratch cream sauce you’ll love!

WEDNESDAY

Famous-Chili-Amazing-chili-to-warm-up-to-on-a-cold-winters-day

Famous Chili from Julie’s Eats and Treats

I never met a chili I didn’t like and this version that Julie got from a friend who got it from a friend who got it from a friend… well you get the idea. It’s famous.

THURSDAY

Teriyaki Chicken Fried Rice from Wine and Glue

We love love love some take out fake out, but this ONE POT dish really hits the spot.

FRIDAY

Salmon-with-Spinach-Tomato-Orzo-1-of-2

 Salmon with Spinach and Tomato Orzo from Garnish with Lemon

I am always looking for delicious ways to have restaurant-quality food at home. Salmon is one of my favorite things to order out, but I think this dinner might steal the date night show!

SATURDAY

Gyros-4_labeled1

Gyros from Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts

Soft pita shells, tender beef or lamb, cool and creamy Tzatziki sauce… I am totally drooling.

SUNDAY
Skinny Sausage and Corn Chowder Pic 1
 Skinny Sausage Chowder from Lemons for Lulu

Sausage, corn, and potatoes make for a soup so cozy you will never know it’s lightened up!

DON’T FORGET DESSERT!

Blackberry-Sticky-Buns-768x1024

Blackberry Sticky Buns from Sugar Dish Me

Are they breakfast? Are they dessert? I’m voting both.

Thanks Joanne! I can't get that salad out of my head. I might make it every day until I get sick of it.
