Hi, guys! I’m back from Israel. I arrived, safe and sound, bright and early, on Friday morning… and, whoa, I’ve been struggling with jet-lag ever since. I fell asleep on the couch at 6:00 PM on Friday night and then made it to 8:30 PM last night, but Quinn and I were wide awake, ready for the day, at 4:30 AM this morning, thanks to Daylight Savings Time. Oy.
Long story short, I’m all messed up time-wise, so the thought of meal planning for the week – even making myself a super easy meal plan – seemed like it required too much mental capacity. Plus, Qman was itching to get out of the house (since we were awake so early), so I quickly made a grocery shopping list with a few meal ideas in mind and headed out the door to Trader Joe’s with him. If you’re on Instagram, check out my Stories for a quick meal prep rundown. Otherwise, here’s what’s on our agenda this week!
- Banza penne with tomatoes, basil, and garlic
- Trader Joe’s Chicken Pot Pie
- Instant Pot shredded chicken with veggies
- Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf (with fewer steps and ingredients)
