I realize I have stopped posting "foodie style" and for that I apologize. To be honest, I find I have had little time to cook much and when I do, I don't usually take the time to take pics and upload them. Maybe I am lazy or maybe I am that busy...who knows. Hopefully, I will once again have time to post a bit about meal prep. You will see me transitioning to more meal planning with less spontaneity. Since I am once again entering the workforce, I will be doing more casseroles and things that freeze easily. I will also be cooking more multi-purpose meals, so if you're into that, please check back in from time to time. As always, I will focus on nutritious and economical meals. On Mondays, I have no classes and do not work, so that will be a day that I can do a large portion of my meal prep for the week. This is my meal plan for next week.
On Monday I will prepare a large pot of navy bean soup and make a double batch of corn muffins. This will serve as Monday nights meal. The leftover portion of beans will go into a huge pot of white chili which should feed us Tuesday and Wednesday. Also on Monday, I will roast two pounds of bone-in chicken breasts. After cooling, I will chop the breast up and put it in the freezer. One pound will be used on Thursday night in a quick chicken Alfredo and the other pounds will be used Friday in chicken quesedillas. Sides will be salad, rice and steamed veggies.
