Meal Plan Monday: 6/2

Did anyone else find themselves wishing that this Monday were last Monday and we had the day off? I definitely was! Those three day weekends are such a tease.

Here is a look at what is cookin’ in our kitchen this week:

Week of Jun2

Undone Stuffed Pepper Casserole

This was on our meal plan for last week, but I never ended up making it.

The original recipe calls for ground turkey, but I always make it with ground beef. For some reason, I used ground turkey this time and I just wasn’t a fan! I’ll be sticking with beef in the future.

Baked Caesar Chicken

I love this recipe, and I haven’t had it in quite a few weeks. It comes together so quickly (perfect for a post-gym dinner!) and tastes so yummy with a simple side of green beans.

Slow Cooked Angel Chicken

I feel like I’ve been neglecting my slow cooker lately (I guess that tends to happen in the warmer months), and I knew I wanted to break it out for a dinner this week.

I’ve made this recipe from Normal Cooking before, and it turned out great! Just like the last time I made it, I’ll be using boneless, skinless chicken thighs in place of the chicken breasts. I find that the thighs hold up nicely to slow cooking and are definitely more flavorful.

Grilled Turkey, Apple, and Cheddar Sandwiches

We love an excuse to break out our panini press!

I came across this recipe in the May issue of Cooking Light and it sounds delicious! I’m not following the original recipe exactly, but it’s still hard to beat a warm grilled sandwich. I also picked up some Alexia sweet potato fries to have on the side.

What are your favorite grilled sandwich ingredients? I never thought we’d use our panini press as much as we do; it comes in so handy!

    I actually have been using my slow cooker more lately just because I’ve been SO busy. I’ve just been throwing chicken in with salsa or BBQ sauce or something simple just so we don’t have to worry about legitimately making dinner ;)
