Everyday Life and Menu Plan 6.5.17 (and my new lunch staple)

It's been a blessedly boring week around these parts, without much to recap. Therefore, I thought I'd share my recent favorite for lunch.

Having a veggie burger for lunch is not an earth shattering revelation, but the ways in which they can be utilized was a revelation for me. I had been using leftover dinner veggies or roasting some specifically for lunches to have with brown rice and a fried egg. Now I when I don't want to prep for lunches ahead of time, I can just heat up these Dr. Praeger's patties and break them up over rice, quinoa, or even into some scrambled eggs or on top of avocado toast - endless possibilities! I do highly recommend these veggie burgers as the seasonings are top notch, and compared to other brands, they have more vegetables than grains. In addition to Prager's, Trader Joe's has so many fun flavored ones (like the Masala ones we use for tacos) that can add variety to what can be the most ho hum meal of the day.
Also, as summer is on the horizon, I think we might start instituting a weekly sandwich and side salad night in addition to our weekly pizza night to change things up and cook a little less!
  • Monday - Pizza
  • Tuesday - Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers with Roasted Broccoli and Brown Rice (a favorite from Iowa Girl Eats)
  • Wednesday - BLTs with Sides from the Deli (part of making warm summer dinners easier!)
  • Thursday - Chicken and Veggie Kebabs with Hummus and Cous-Cous (we just throw mushrooms, red onion, tomatoes, zucchini, and red pepper on skewers along with the chicken and coat it with olive oil and a sprinkling of grill seasoning)
  • Friday - Pesto Pasta with Roasted Asparagus and Sun Dried Tomatoes (a staple from Damn Delicious)
  • Saturday - Date night!
  • Sunday - Turkey Chili Taco Soup (super tasty and easy recipe from Skinnytaste)
As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie Menu Plan Monday - be sure to check out all the great weekly food inspiration!
