Meal Plan Monday ~ 1/7/13

My kitchen and I aren’t the best of friends these days.  I’d like to say it’s holiday burn-out, but the reality is that I hardly cooked over the holidays.  So we’ve pretty much been eating tacos, pasta, and take-out these past few weeks.  No bueno.

I know that having a plan gets me halfway there, so here we are back to Meal Plan Monday.  And to increase my odds of success, I am focusing on crockpot meals.  Because even when I’ve had a plan lately, I’ve had trouble finding the motivation to pull out the pots and pans.  So this way all we need is a few simple ingredients and plates.  Hopefully I can handle that.

Monday ~ BBQ Chicken Pizza

Tuesday ~ Crunchy Chicken Nuggets, Clementines

Wednesday ~ Crockpot Pork Roast (I am using some variation of this recipe)

Thursday ~ Crockpot Veggie Lentil Stew, Quinoa

Friday ~ Roast Acorn Squash, Whole Wheat Pasta

Saturday ~ Beet Risotto

Sunday ~ Beef Stew (from freezer)

My recent laziness in the kitchen also means there is a lot of prep cooking to be caught up on: Yogurt, Stock, Refried Beans, Muffins, Salad Dressing.  Most likely it will not all get done this week, but at least I have an idea of what we need for meals in the upcoming weeks.  And I get to use my new immersion blender on the beans, so that’s motivating… right?

How is your relationship with your kitchen in the New Year?
