Monday’s Menu + Thai Turkey Burgers

Happy Monday!

I hope you are all having a great day 🙂 We had a great weekend and ready to kick off another week. I was so happy last night when I found some of the famous spaghetti pie in the fridge… totally forgot I baked that Friday. Perfect for David’s lunch today and my dinner tonight. I should start making something on Friday for Monday and Tuesday lunches. It was almost as fun as finding money in my coat pocket 😉

This week we are really trying to structure meals around the proteins in the freezer. This can be tricky, but with a little planning, all should go well.


  • Spinach salad + shredded chicken (seasoned with my favorite trio–> oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder) + Crispy potatoes (I did these in the InstantPot and now I am going to smash them and stick them under the broiler until the butter melts)
  • Tuna salad sandwiches (tuna + avocado + Primal Kitchen mayo + chopped fermented pickle) + fruit salad
  • Beef + broccoli rice bowls with salsa and avocado
  • Turkey roll-ups or turkey burgers with Jackson’s Honest chips, olives, carrots, hummus, and an apple with almond butter
  • Meatballs with zoodles and carrots with a side salad
  • Creamy chicken soup (chicken, broth, coconut milk, basil, oregano, crushed tomatoes, and other veggies I have leftover!)

MEAL IDEA is a yummy one!! And very versatile. It all started with a random purchase of Thai Coconut Curry Hummus! I LOVE HOPE hummus. It is so good! And this one just caught my eye.

All I did was pan-grill these amazing turkey burgers (frozen ones by Applegate). Then served them on a gluten-free bun with the hummus spread on thick!

I served it with fresh lime, carrots, and avocado. Then a spinach + broccoli + asparagus salad on the side drizzled with my favorite olive oil.

So easy and GOOD!!! I am actually having David grab another pack of the turkey burgers because they are so easy and perfect for lunch.

Y’all have a wonderful Monday night!!

Tripp’s Plate Tuesday: Everything Cold

Happy Tuesday evening! We have had one busy day! But Tripp and I really enjoyed a cold lunch. Part 1 was a green smoothie and part 2…

A plate full of cold stuff! Cucumbers, carrots, pepperoni, yogurt, purple chips… and a pickle

Homemade fermented pickle 🙂

Did I mention we had to water flowers?? Tripp also watered me. Ha little stinker turned that on me so fast. I was trying to sneak a picture of him watering the pink flower… then he sprayed me!

Anyways! I've got a big batch of broth going. I'm weird and love the smell… it's just so comforting! I'll slow cook this overnight then add more bones and new water for a second batch (pressure cooked) then again. Hoping to knock out 3 batches… stock the freezer time!! Although drinking it cold on a hot day is actually really refreshing!

Don't forget if you're looking for a better way to clean and faster, check out Norwex. I'm hosting a party through a friend and have an online link. Do know that when you shop that link, not only does it help me score some sweet hostess gifts (hint hint stuff for another blog giveaway!!) but it'll help my friend too. AND it will be another way to support the switch to safer movement. Here's the shopping link… just click here!!

I used the Envirocloth to wipe down some of my stainless today and I literally told Tripp and Leo to just admire the shine!! Ha. I was amazed. I really do use that cloth for everything. If you're wondering what to try first, I would say that!

I've got a recipe to share tomorrow!! I'll also try and snap photos of what we eat tomorrow for a What I Ate Wednesday post 🙂

Good night!!
