2015 | Meal Plan

I don't know about you, but the holidays make me a bad cook.
Not that the food I prepare is bad, but I'm so used to minimal cooking and lots of leftovers,
that it's hard for me to get back in the swing of meal planning and cooking.  
After a week of eating at other people's homes and bringing all sorts of fixings home,
I get lazy in the kitchen.  
So, I thought sharing some of my favorite recipes would help us all get back to our "happy" 
place as far as meal prep is concerned.

Everyone's palate is different, but these are sure fire recipes that my entire family loves.
They are also easy to fix and good on the New Year's budget!

(the picture doesn't look good, but don't let that fool ya!  It's a keeper!!)
Bruschetta Chicken served on a spinach lettuce salad
(this is usually grilled, but i sear it in a pan and then use my broiler to caramalize the the sauce and cheese)
(if you have more than 2/3 people- double this recipe!)
Tacos- no explanation needed. ;)
Chili- I just throw a bunch of goodies in a pot and call it good!

This will almost (fingers crossed) get us through two weeks of Supper-time meals.
I double several of these to make it stretch and keep me from standing around in the kitchen all day.
Like I said, these are simple recipes that don't require crazy ingredients or a lot of ingredients.
I hope this helped inspire you to get back in the groove for 2015!


  1. I need to work on getting back into meal planning. The holidays always throw me off! I'm on the lazy boat, too :) Thanks for the ideas!

  2. I can totally relate! I had a hard time getting back in the swing but FORCED Myself to sit down and meal plan last week and shop on Monday. I still feel like it is hard to make myself get in the kitchen and prepare dinner, but hopefully I'll be back into the swing really soon. Thanks for sharing these recipes! I am excited to check some of them out!
