Meal Planning for the Week of December 15 – 21

Hey nommers. I’ve admittedly been a bit absent over the last week. The last week left me feeling down, defeated, and lacking motivation. Not a great week. Luckily the week ended well, with a fun girls’ night with my BFF, so that helps! I’ve just got to get through one more week of work before my my eleven day vacation!

Last Week:

Dinner Meal Plan for December 8-14:

I ended up not cooking two of the meals that I had originally planned, and opted for leftovers one night, and leftovers supplemented by take-out another day. I was a bit over-indulgent this past week, and hope to get back on track this next week.

  • Saturday: Pizza from Domino’s. Mine (yes, I had my own pizza) had half banana peppers and pineapple, and half pepperoni and green olives. Great combination!

  • Monday: Leftover Minestrone Soup
  • Tuesday: Salmon Croquettes, Butternut Squash, Creamed Spinach



  • Thursday: Leftover soup with half of a Dibella’s Sub


  • Friday: Date night with my BFF! As usual, Mexican was on the menu for the two of us. We had a most delicious dinner at Prickly Pear! I need to go to Prickly Pear more often. Their food is the best. We had only a five minute wait on a Friday night at 7:30 PM too!

I loved my Sweet Potato Enchiladas, and the Black Beans on the side tasted especially incredible!
