Another Monday and another week of batch cooking/meal plans!
Last week’s meals look pretty similar to the week before. It wasn’t planned that way, it just sort of happened. I promise next week’s meals will be completely different!
As the week before, I batch prepared and cooked everything over the weekend. While it’s definitely a lot of work over the weekend, it makes my nights so much smoother! We’ve barely eaten out these past two weeks as well, which is great!
I had some a few things leftover from the week before that I integrated into this week’s meal plan.
This past week I only went to Kroger. It was actually a pretty big shopping trip for us, but we ate almost all the food over the week, so it was worth it! I didn’t have to do any other shopping trips throughout the week (until like the previous week), so I’d say we did a good job getting everything we needed.
Fruits/Veggies: Shredded carrots, bananas, mushrooms, organic spring mix, organic romaine, apples, baby carrots, onions, radishes, green peppers, avocado, cucumber, basil, organic plums, garlic, tomatoes
Pantryish: Generic cheerios, whole wheat bread, hot sauce, franks sauce, marinara sauce, canned: corn, crushed tomatoes, peas, green beans, black beans; crispy jalapenos, raisins, mojo bars
Refrigerated: 93% ground turkey, 99% ground turkey, chicken breasts, milk, turkey and ham lunch meat, egg whites, eggs, greek yogurt, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, wonton wrappers, cheddar cheese, pudding
Here’s everything I prepped on Sunday for the week.
Hard boiled eggs, cut green pepper, zucchini and onions
Lasagna cups (we are obsessed!) from Cherie’s blog and chicken marinating in franks hot sauce for Matt to cook later in the week
Chicken Rollatini with spinach alla parmigiana from Skinny Taste, raw cucumbers and radishes
His and her salads, both side and entrée size. Mine had spring mix, carrots, mushrooms, radishes and cucumber. His had romaine, peas, corn, black beans, carrots and parmesan cheese.
Full fridge, ready for the week!

Monday: rollatini with salad
Tuesday: tomato and mozzarella panini + veggie and potato hash with bbq sauce

Homemade whole wheat pizza with green peppers, garlic and turkey
And I wanted to leave y’all with a picture of one of the lunches I had this week at the hospital. This was a made-to-order chicken pot pie with salad on the side. The pot pie had carrots, celery, peas, potatoes, onion and chicken. So good!
So there’s another week of meals and groceries for y’all!
BTW – do y’all like the format of these posts? I feel like I’m just putting picture after picture up, but I don’t really have the patience/creativity to think of another way to do it ?
