See all weekly meal plans right here.
This week was a whirlwind, as we returned from our journey and settled again into the swing of issues, full with physician and orthodontist appointments that I sillily determined to schedule for the day after we received again on the town. Whoops! All of it labored out although, and it felt good to get again within the kitchen and make some meals.
Sunday was our final night time in Jackson Gap. After getting off the slopes we wished one thing fast and straightforward whereas we packed up all our issues. We ordered rotini and meatballs from a close-by Italian place and ate it within the foyer, adopted by the complimentary cheesecake.
Monday was a full day of journey. We arrived again in Charlotte round 6:30 PM and determined to get one among our favorites, Blu Star Grill, for dinner since I had nothing at residence. I had the buffalo rooster wrap with roasted broccoli.
A grocery journey meant a full fridge as soon as once more. Mother got here to convey Finley again residence and I wished one thing hearty for us all, so I made copycat Cava bowls. This bowl included a rice and lentil mix, cabbage, cucumber and tomato salad, cauliflower rice, rooster, child spinach, feta, kalamata olives, harissa, tzatziki, and hummus. I set it up like a salad bar and everybody made their very own.
Wednesday we had been again within the move of co-op and soccer practices, so I caught with a simple household favourite, mother’s spaghetti and meat sauce. Topped with recent herbs from my countertop gardens that took off whereas we had been on trip!
After soaking a pound of black beans in a single day, I added the veggies and spice and let it prepare dinner all day for sluggish cooker black bean soup. I made easy cheese quesadillas to go along with them.
For a comfy night time at residence I made the finest dang steak (such a simple technique for steak cooked inside), smashed potatoes, roasted broccoli and cabbage, and kale Caesar salad.
Saturday we went mountaineering within the mountains and stopped at one among David’s favourite BBQ spots within the state, JD’s Smokehouse. Perhaps we had been all tremendous hungry, but it surely was completely scrumptious. I had the pork and rooster combo with slaw and Brunswick stew.

I had Cafe Rio for the primary time within the Salt Lake airport whereas touring residence – scrumptious! At residence I reactivated my starter and baked a pair loaves of sourdough which labored so properly for avocado toast breakfasts and cheese toast lunches.
