Week 1 Meal Plan

With the Superbowl this week, there are tons of great deals on the ingredients for traditional Superbowl snacks (tomatoes, avocados, green onions, sour cream, cheese, cream cheese, steak, etc). I made sure to incorporate these ingredients into this week's meal plan. I left an easy dinner on Sunday for all of you who may or may not have Superbowl traditions to keep up.

spaghetti and meatballs, garlic toast, steamed broccoli and cauliflower

Korean beef with broccoli, brown rice, edamame

Friday- Breakfast for dinner!
cream cheese eggs, hashbrowns, fruit

Saturday-Free day!
Go out, eat leftovers, or whip up some easy hot dog bun pizzas.

Sunday- Superbowl

Superbowl snacks
chicken alfredo, steamed baby carrots, peas

Mexican haystacks, green salad, corn

baked pork chops, onion rice, green beans, peas

Customize everything to your heart's content, or just follow my meal plan exactly.

Week 1 Time Saving Tips
Chop all the broccoli (save half in the fridge for Tuesday's Korean beef with broccoli).
Chop all of the green onions, separating into three separate bags in the fridge.

Start marinating the Korean beef with broccoli whenever you get a free moment in the day; use one of the portions of green onions.

Use one portion of green onions for the Cream cheese eggs.

If you decide to make Hot dog bun pizzas, chop up all your onion and bell peppers and save some for Monday's Mexican haystacks.

Start the recipe in the crock pot 5-6 hours before dinner.

If you get a spare moment in the day, you can chop up all of the toppings in advance. Use up the last portion of green onions.
