Meal Planning for Week of August 18-24

Are you ready for the weekly spiel?!

Last Week: Dinner Meal Plan for Week of August 11 – August 17:



  • Monday:  Sausage Lasagna leftovers, Salad




  • Thursday: Wing it – I had a plate of really delicious homemade Indian food at a work gathering, including Kheema, which was much better than the version I’ve made before! Pics were taken on a friends’ camera, so I’m unable to post them here yet. Later in the evening I supplemented with a small salad box from Whole Foods, to get in my greens!


  • Friday: Out: We had take-out from San Fu. I had steamed chicken with mixed veggies with the no-oil General Tso’s sauce (love this healthier option) with Hot and Sour Soup and fried rice.

PS – I am in love with these new red polka bowl mugs at I found at Big Lots for $3 each. Aren’t they cute?! And so useful!
