meal prep | week 2
Week 1 went so well, I’m back for more meal prepping madness.
It’s a good thing I was so organized last week; I ended up with a migraine to end all migraines. I was so sick I couldn’t even make Charlie his birthday pizzaookie. Ian had to order one. As a kid I would have LOVED a non-homemade birthday treat, all we got was homemade. NOT my kids. Sure they ate the pizzookie; what’s not to love, but they did mention oh I don’t know about a millions times that it tasted weird, not like my homemade pizzookie.
That should have made me feel good, instead I felt SO guilty.
At least they had meals and snacks while I was down.
By Sunday I was feeling better, not great, but was determined for another successful, well organized week.
My prep list –
1 | our usual trio of berries, washed and sliced
2 | cut up veggies for snacking – cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, and bell pepper strips
3 | triple berry scones for quick breakfasts or snacks (recipe coming later this week)
4 | made a pot of chickpeas – we love them on salads, and I made enough for hummus as well
5 | chicken stock which we will use for chicken and dumpling soup tonight
6 | Sundays ham with leftovers to use for ham and cheese crepes later in the week
7 | white bread to use for sandwiches as well as for the dumplings
8 | two french bread loaves – one for the soup, and one to freeze
9 | quick tomato sauce for pasta night
10 | chocolate chip cookies and granola bars for lunch box snacks
I’m enjoying this prep so much, I already have next week’s list done.
