Meal Planning so far...

*** So a few weeks ago I started meal planning for the week. So far I have loved it. It has made grocery shopping easier and cheaper and I don't have to put a lot of thought into what's for dinner!

So I thought I'd let you know what I have made and what we thought of them...

A: Easy prep, delicious but a little messy to eat.
J: Amazing. Can't go wrong with bacon.

A: This was delicious.
J: Pretty good. Indifferent on this one. Alison usually makes some pretty good pastas.

I actually put this one on a bun and made it a into a burger...
A: I really liked it, Justin BBQ'd do super easy for me!
J: Would prefer just a regular chicken burger. ;)

A: Loved this!! Comfort meal for sure. Would be so good on a cold day to come home to. I didn't add any beans.
J: So good. Like Chili but Soup.

A: I love quesadillas so I loved these, pretty simple meal too.
J: These are great. Not great the next day. (ha ha this made me laugh)

A: I love lettuce wraps, these ones were good but not as good as some others I have had!
J: Wouldn't make them again! ha

A: Not bad, a lot of sauce, I'd add less next time. I prefer Mom's way of making it.
J: Not really a fan. No where near as good as the real thing.

(no photo)
A: This one was pretty good. Wouldn't have though it was a WW recipe. Easy to make.
J: Had a tangy taste. Must have been the ranch.

I also made this for myself for breakfast (J doesn't like quinoa!)

Apple Cinnamon Quinoa
It was pretty good and a nice healthy change for breakfast.

There we go! Have you tried a great new recipe lately?

Have you ever checked out the blog Iowa Girl Eats? Love her recipes!I made her Harvest Chicken Quinoa Soup and Chopped Autumn Salad this week, both were awesome.

Nicole @ Haute Runner said...

I'm going to make those BLT lettuce wraps and the quesadillas. Love the reviews from both of you!

I actually do have a recipe to share but you'll have to check my blog today (when I get around to finishing the post!). The non-cooker cooked!

Leigh said...

I've been trying to find some healthier recipes lately. If Brian chooses what to make, it will be heavy and not so healthy! Those are okay, but not all the time. We had philly cheese steaks last good!

I think the real question I have about this post is what does J actually like?! :)

Whit said...

I WON!!!!! YAYYYYY! Thanks Alison - Such an awsome giveaway!!
I love these recipes. I have tried some of them when you posted them last time and some are on our regular cycle, SO GOOD! Nice work on the menu planning :) {I had a giggle over J's responses}

Jennifer said...

Good to know about the recipes! I might have to try the Pasta Fagioli.

Caroline said...

I love having both of your opinions on the food.

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

We made those same BLT lettuce wraps! So yummy!

Recently Roached said...

Wahoo! :) Winner winner chicken dinner.

Michelle said...

These meals all look so yummy!

Ashley said...

Congrats to Whit!!!

I love the commentary on the new recipes - Justin is right, you do make really good pasta!!! I am interested in the bacon ranch pasta one!!

Amy Nadeau said...

I've done that cajun chicken pasta - Scott and I didn't love it.
I do pineapple & chicken quesadillias all the time! Love them!!

Rachel and John said...

I also love a lettuce wrap. I love the ones from Joeys! I'm way too intimidated to make them myself.

Sarah said...

I have been wanting to try the different quinoas I've seen lately for breakfast...that one looks delish!

I like that you added what you both thought of the meals...great idea!

Jenn @ Bliss to Bean said...

Our husbands sound SO similar with food opinions!! Joe is very picky, and I'm working on a post now that includes the famous "Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops" and he wouldn't even finish them last night. I am fairly picky, but geesh, these men are like true foodies!! Thanks for sharing both of your opinions, as it really helps! You really can't go wrong with bacon (for the hubs).

MMMmmmm I miss PF Changs! A really good recipe I tried a couple months ago was buffalo quinoa mac n cheese from here:

Holly said...

I love that you and J both gave your opinions! I had been wondering how the crockpot Chicken Parm would work out. Bummer. The Cajun pasta looks amazing!
