meal prep | week 3
another week of meal prep already
January always feels like the l o n g e s t month to me.
After the hustle and bustle of holidays and birthdays, the month usually drags by,
but not this year, I cannot believe we’re already more than half way through the month. Meal prep has been such a fun project for me, and has really helped to keep me organized, my number one goal for 2015.
This week my meal prep included –
1 | poached chicken for tonight’s creamy baked chicken pasta, and shredded the extra chicken for enchiladas long live taco tuesday
2 | marinara sauce for turkey and spinach calzones
3 | multi grain loaves, based on these harvest grain rolls; we’ll have bread for our meals and also sandwiches for lunches
5 | the usual fruit and veggie prep – carrot, celery, and zucchini sticks, broccoli, cucumber slices, berries, oranges and grape fruits peeled and segmented
6 | our hens have been terrific layers this winter; I hard-boiled enough eggs for a few quick breakfasts and snacks
7| buttermilk waffles for the freezer, for another quick before school breakfast
and I could not forget a sweet treat
8 | these wheat free chocolate chip cookies disappeared, so I made another batch for lunch boxes
I’d love to hear what you’re prepping or tips to stay organized in the kitchen.
