Weekly Meal Plan {Feb 22-28}


I’ve definitely been on a buffalo kick lately, which Stephen and Joshua appreciate and Maggie is merely tolerating, lol. I loved the Buffalo Turkey Burgers we had last week, mmm.

  1. Looks good! You guys must like turkey a lot (we do, too). Do you guys eat beef?
    We have planned: baked chicken tenderloins, pastrami sandwiches, homemade pizza, grilled chicken breasts, turkey cutlet kabobs, salmon/steak (husband won’t eat fish!), hamburgers, and french toast. We pair that with a veggie and then a rotation of pasta, white rice, couscous, garlic bread, etc.
    Btw, your meal plan posts have inspired me to do a Saturday “meals in review” post – saying what my kids actually ate. let’s see if it rolls out as planned… Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Ground turkey is great because it molds to the flavor of whatever you add to it, whereas ground beef keeps its own flavor (which I don’t care for). We do eat steak and pot roast, but not that often. ^_^
      How do you make your homemade pizzas? I’ve yet to make a pizza crust that I’ve enjoyed. :P
      Ooh, I’m glad you’ll be sharing a meal review post on Saturdays – fun!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
