Happy Monday, y’all! I almost forgot about sharing our gameplan for the week. Once again, we had a good selection of proteins in the freezer, so I planned around that.
- Ground beef with salt, pepper, turmeric, oregano, onion, garlic powder, and cumin.
- Grilled steak
- Jasmine rice cooked in broth
- Pressure cooker potato salad
- Pumpkin oatmeal breakfast cookies
- Pumpkin snack bars
- Chopped celery and carrots
I also have some salad greens, a bag of green beans to sauté, and a bag of cauliflower rice. I plan on browning a pack of sausage and making some meatballs out of ground turkey or chicken midweek. I’ll also roast sweet potatoes in some ghee and salt/pepper.
Basically when I have the chance to prep this much, I kind of toss the idea of a menu and go more with “choose a meat and a couple of sides” and eat!
Meal idea(s)… let’s talk breakfast. You probably noticed the pumpkin breakfast cookies. I pretty much modified this recipe to fit what I had on hand. It’s like baked oatmeal in cookie form! And what about a snack? I did these pumpkin bars (but added molasses for some nutrients!) for a snack… Tripp approved! I serve mine with chocolate chips for a fun sweet treat 🙂
And lastly, I have so many recipes in this cookbook to try. And honestly this potato salad was tagged but more for that first summer cookout. Well it was so beautiful Sunday, I decided why wait for summer?!? A mix of Primal Kitchen mayo and mustard and celery… a pinch of paprika… and you’re looking at a fun side. It really did spruce up my lunch today!
And something about pressure cooking just makes you feel like Iron Chef worthy 🙂 Ha.
Side note, y’all don’t forget my #switchtosafer Beautycounter Social is still going on. All orders placed through that link in the month of February will go into a drawing! The winner will get a bag of samples. I’ve had some fun BC parties so far this month… here’s a little clip from this weekend’s 😉
Good night and happy Tuesday!
