Eat in Month 2015 Meal Plan Week 3

Eat in Month 2015 Meal Plan Week 3

While I always enjoy the Eat in Month Challenge, I must say that I’m looking forward to being able to eat out in February. There are some things I can’t make (like pizza at the moment…thanks, oven). And then there are some things restaurants do so much better than me. In past years, I used to think that if you wanted something from a restaurant that you should do your best to re-create it. And while that’s fun, there are many things that restaurants and talented chefs are just going to do better than me no matter how hard I try. And I respect that. And I really just want to eat some of it now. But, I can wait a couple more weeks.

Still, the Eat in Month challenge does always help me look at my everyday eating in a new light. There are some lessons learned that I want to apply to my eats in the rest of 2015. I’m hoping to pick up a couple more in the last two weeks of the challenge. So, two and a half weeks down, and two to go. We can do this!

Here’s my Eat in Month 2015 Meal Plan Week 3

Sunday, January 18, 2015

My foodie friends came over on Sunday for a potluck Eat in Month style. It was so fun, and the food was delicious. Those girls can cooooook! Remember the cheese potluck? More on Sunday’s potluck in my check-in post.

We had the day off from work, so we tried a new slow cooker recipe. We don’t like leaving the slow cooker on while we’re away, so we try these out on the weekends and other days we’ll be around all day.

The slow cooker recipe made a lot of beef, so we have plenty leftover for lunch. We’ll keep dinner easy with some simple to prepare and cook eats.

  • Lunch: Beef Taco Bowls
  • Dinner: Mom’s Pork Chops, rice, steamed veg

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Spaghetti Wednesday! It’s become a tradition, and I love it!

  • Lunch: Sandwich, chips, veg
  • Dinner: Spaghetti and salad

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Spaghetti always makes enough for two meals. And for dinner, hubby requested grilled cheese, so he gets to cook it. hehe. Seriously though, we wanted something fast for a post-class dinner.

  • Lunch: Spaghetti and salad
  • Dinner: Grilled cheese and tomato soup

Friday, January 23, 2015

We’re heading to my parents house for some birthday celebrations this weekend, so we’ll see what they have for dinner on Friday.

  • Lunch: Sandwich, chips, veg
  • Dinner: at the parents house

Saturday, January 24, 2015

My parents love to cook, so eating in this weekend will be easy-peasy. We’ll see what they feel like cooking, but we’ll definitely eat in.

  • Lunch: at the parents house
  • Dinner: at the parents house
