meal planning

Good news!  Leo had a weight check at the doctor’s yesterday and he’s now 13 pounds, 8 ounces, up from 12 pounds just a month ago!  The nurse was really pleased with his progress and so were we!

Look at those cheeks!  (Before the start of the half marathon… it’s kind of amazing he lasted over 2 hours in the stroller given the grumper face!)

I said yesterday that I’m trying to be more diligent about meal planning so there’s less scrambling for dinners.  Here’s what I’ve planned for this week – and groceries have been bought as well!

  • bell pepper pizza with cauliflower crust
  • eggplant bharta
  • black eyed pea jambalaya (which will probably be with a different bean because I couldn’t find black eyed peas at the grocery store!)
  • veggie risotto in the rice cooker
  • zucchini dark chocolate brownies

Depending, some of the recipes might not get made this week, but that just means I’m one step ahead of next week!  Here was this week’s grocery list as well:

from Sam’s Club:

  • frozen broccoli
  • white onions
  • shredded mozzarella
  • shredded cheddar
  • bell peppers
  • frozen peas (for baby food)
  • avocado (for baby food… and for us)
  • frozen peaches (for baby food)
  • chips
  • spinach

from Kroger:

  • 2 eggplants
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • tomato paste
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 3 cans vegetable broth
  • diced tomatoes with chiles
  • 2 heads of cauliflower – one purple and one orange!
  • red potatoes
  • grapes
  • strawberries
  • raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar (more on that soon!)

What meals are you making this week?

  1. Yeah, Leo!! Good job big guy!

    Your meals sound delicious. I’m trying to use up all of our odds and ends before we head on a mini-vacation this week so our meals will be all over the place. I really want to try the cornmeal crust pizza you posted a while back, though! Maybe that’ll be tomorrow.

  2. What a big boy! Good job eating, Leo. And good meal plan, Mom. I might need to steal some of those ideas!

    P.S. You are looking awesome!

  3. Way to go Leo and mama!!!…and papa! Do you shell your peas before you make the babyfood? I always had a hard time with peas…tell me your secrets! I want to know how those brownies turn out….are you all vegitarians????
