Today officially kicks off the start of my Spring Break!! I’m not planning on going out of town, but just hanging out and maybe doing some fun local stuff with the kids. I don’t want to do too much planning, but instead have an easy and carefree week. I may do some experimenting in the kitchen, but for the most part, I plan to make simple throw together meals. I’ll be using lean chicken or fish with brown rice or quinoa and various veggies thrown in to make super simple, quick and nutritious meals.

I do plan to prep a few meals, mainly for the hubby {he’ll still be working}. I definitely plan on making this easy Paleo and Gluten Free Pasta. It’s great to have around to eat on throughout the week and I haven’t made it in quite awhile.

Saturday- Eating out. Landen has a gymnastics meet this afternoon that’s about an hour-and-half away.

Sunday- We’ll most likely be home Sunday night. I’m planning to make Eggplant Stacks with ground turkey.

Monday- Alexis and I are going shopping, so no cooking for dinner. I’m sure we’ll grab something out.

Tuesday- I have a hair appointment in Fort Worth; which is pretty much an all day affair, so I’m planning an easy throw together meal.

Wednesday- Baked chicken….not sure how I’ll cook this and I’m also planning on experimenting with couscous. Hopefully, it will be blog worthy!

Thursday- Breakfast for dinner. I have ricotta to use up and I’ve really wanted to create a ricotta pancake recipe….we’ll see…..

Friday through Sunday- Winging it! Mine and Brad’s anniversary is on Tuesday, so we’ll probably go out Saturday and celebrate. I’ve also been wanting to try Tina’s sweet potato pizza crust and it would make a great weekend dinner.

My goal for grocery shopping this week is to cut down on buying snacks. I’m going to be home all week and I don’t want a bunch of tempting snacky food lying around.

Something to think about…..

Are you meal-planning for next week?

If so, what’s something your planning on making?

Are you off for Spring Break? Anything fun planned?

Have a fantastic weekend!!
