I’m so excited about this new weekly meal plan format!  I have recipes from some lots amazingly talented food bloggers, {are you a food blogger?  Would you like to be featured in the Weekly Meal Plan?  e-mail me!} These recipes, along with my own, will be woven together to create family friendly, deliciously easy, weekly meal plans to help you (and me) stay on track, and hopefully make life easier!  I’m going to be growing this weekly meal plan to include sides, leftover suggestions, and even eventually…. a printable! do you make printables? can you teach me to make printables?  email me!  Let’s talk!!!

Okay – On to this week’s Meal Plan!


I feel like Cauliflower is popping up everywhere in my life and in my meal plans lately, so… sorry not sorry ;-).  One of Princess’ best friends loves cauliflower so every time I buy it, they ask.. “Is Bray coming over?” Nathan and I are trying to eat healthier because Heaven knows we aren’t getting any younger and we need to set better examples for the kids and so we can be the best versions of ourselves!  

I love the flavors and textures in this Shrimp and Bacon Cauliflower Fried from Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen!  This could be a side dish or a main dish, depending on your menu.

If you’re looking for a yummy dish full of flavor that can be made ahead of time and on your table in under 30 minutes; these Caribbean Tacos from Snappy Gourmet are just the thing!  Bright flavors, lots of textures, and while she makes these with Pork – I think this would also work well with a mild fish like mahi mahi or salmon!! YUM.

Weekly Meal Plan Wednesday

My slow cooker is one of my favorite kitchen tools.  I truly believe that everyone should have a slow cooker, and use it. FREQUENTLY.  Especially for things like these Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos from Life is But a Dish.  Chicken in the slow cooker is awesome!  You could make this chicken and use it for these loaded nachos one night, tacos the next, salads etc… Multi-use for the win!

Twice Baked Potatoes are my jam (Pitch Perfect anyone?) I adore twice baked potatoes and when you stuff them with spicy grilled sausage and smother them with cheese and green onions – have mercy! (uncle Jesse)  We grill a few days a week so there’s usually leftover grilled sausage around the house, and these twice baked potatoes come together so easily, and they’re so scrumptious.  Seriously, Mouth Watering, y’all.  This is hands down one of my favorite meals, favorite comfort foods. Get the recipe for these Sausage Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

Breakfast Brunch Brinner

We are big fans of Brunch and Brinner – so however y’all do it, check out these decadent, delicious treats!

If you’re looking to test your baking abilities and have a little fun while you’re at it, I present to you:  Overnight Sweet Potato Monkey Bread from Farm Fresh Feasts.  This uses TWO different colored sweet potatoes, some incredible homemade dough – and I imagine that it’s even more delicious than it is lovely.

If you’re in the mood for something quick, easy, delicious, and little less decadent – These Baked Avocado Eggs in a Basket are awesome. And easy.  Did I mention easy?

Is it just me, or are Sundays made for comfort foods and family time?  Meatloaf just seems like a Sunday food, doesn’t it?  Jennifer Cooks has a wonderful recipe for a Homestyle Meatloaf that will take you straight back to your Granny’s table and childhood.

It’s cauliflower again, but y’all – it’s Maple Chipotle Barbecue Cauliflower!!! Let me repeat that.  Maple.  Chipotle.  Barbecue…. this is a truly scrumptious side dish courtesy of Flavor Mosaic
