Meal Planning for Week of August 11-17

Time for a weekly recap and planning post.

Last Week: Dinner Meal Plan for Week of August 5 – August 10:

Can’t get enough of this recipe. It’s so quick and easy to make, and it tastes amazing!


  • Tuesday: Taco Tuesday at Sabor Latino with Five Cent Femme. I had four $1 tacos: fish (2), chorizo, and carnitas. Fish is still my favorite.


  • Wednesday: Dinner solo, wing it. I ended up going to Exotic Bakeries & Syrian Cuisine, near work, and picking up some take-out. I’m diggin’ this place recently. I ordered combo #12: three pieces of falafel, tabbouli, and hummus, with pita. Sooo good.


I also picked up a little treat for myself (and one for the huz when he got home too!): a chocolate truffle, which was nothing short of foodgasmic.



  • Friday: Pizza and wings from Domino’s! I’ve been feeling so worn out this week, that I had little desire to do much other than relax at home and eat pizza. I’ve had a headache (I just typed pizza instead of headache, ahahaha) for over one week straight now. Yesssss. This helped.
