Not gonna lie, barely holding it together this Monday. Thus, the late evening Meal-Planning Monday post. But trust me, Halloween meal planning is worth the wait!
Monday has gotten away from me, but it sure was productive, which is good. I really needed to kill it today! Because the week is only getting busier as the days go on.
- Tomorrow: oldest daughter’s turning 13!
- Wednesday: Halloween festivities!
- Thursday: major house cleaning (see Friday) and recipe development projects.
- Friday: video interview in my home for a military professional spouse project.
So, I had to get a plan together quickly to–you guessed it–prevent chaos. I hope these meal plans spark some festive or seasonal ideas and help you stay sane, too!
Meal Planning This Week
Monday (a busy night): Instant Pot White Chicken Chili (a new real-food, gluten-free, dairy-free recipe; to be posted soon!) Tip: I made this at 2pm and kept it on warm until 6pm.
Tuesday (a busy night and my oldest’s birthday dinner request): Mom’s Pot Roast (bonus my mom’s visiting to make it for us), Instant Pot mashed potatoes, and green beans.
Wednesday (Halloween): Chili at my neighbors; I’m bringing a large simple salad to share and one of my many festive real-food Halloween treats–not sure which one yet!
Thursday (a busy night): Leftovers!
Friday: Instant Pot Lemon Chicken Piccata with roasted winter vegetables (I’m working on developing a new winter vegetable recipe collection for OnTrack Diabetes; if you like plant-based eating, you may want to check out the easy vegan recipes I recently developed for them!)
Buon Appetito and Happy Halloween!
