What’s For Dinner?

INCOMING: Busy week!

I have long afternoon trainings at work most of the week which means a lot of make ahead prep meals and simple dinners since I probably won’t be coming home for lunch. It’s a bummer because I really enjoy being able to run home and cook some food mid-day, but it’s going to be grab and go all week! Good thing I have tomorrow off to prepare some food, because today I plan to have my butt firmly planted on the couch reading, working on my Project Life album and (hopefully) watching the 49ers kick some ass.

Here’s the plan:

Lunch: Spinach Salads with Bacon and Eggs and Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
Dinner: Deconstructed Gyro Salad

Lunch: Hard Boiled Eggs + Sweet Potato Hash
Dinner: Mexican Meatza + Salad

Lunch: Grilled Chicken Thighs and Steamed Broccoli
Dinner: Crock Pot Italian Pot Roast (recipe similar to this) + Carrots + Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Pecans

Lunch: Sausages and Cabbage with Onions
Dinner: Pork Loin + Butternut Squash Stew

Lunch: Leftover Stew
Dinner: California Club Turkey Burgers + Sweet Potato Fries

Lunch: Brunch!
Dinner: Must Go (or go out after a busy week!)



So what’s cooking in your neck of the woods? What do you cook when you have a busy week ahead?

    This week will be crazy for me as well, so I have all my meals planned ahead. Warm Bacon Vinaigrette? Is there a recipe for this somewhere?

    I tend to do some Sunday prep as well. I make a pot of steel cut oats for the week’s breakfasts, a batch of quinoa in the rice cooker and usually roast or sautee some veggies for quick lunches. Lately, I’ve been making a batch of soup too- stuck on a lentil lemon one right now. It’s so easy to grab and go for work lunches.

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
