A while ago I posted about doing a muffin tin salad meal for dinner. I love to do make-your-own salads because the kids are much more excited about eating salads when they make their own. However, make your own salads always turned into arguments and "stress" as someone ultimately took way more than their share of one or more topping. Using silicone muffin cups for the toppings makes life so much simpler since everyone has their own share already doled out.
Anyways, when I made the muffin tin salads, Abby from A House Of... commented that it would work well for taco salad. Tonight, I decided to give it a try, and it was definitely a hit!
Meal Plans for the Week
(Unless the Baby comes and then it's likely all out the window!! )
Sunday- Make your own "muffin tin" taco salads (using homemade taco seasoning)
Monday- Chicken Paprikash served with whole grain egg noodles (on last week's plan- didn't get made) *Also trying a variation of adding in some pureed sweet potato.
Wednesday- Garlic lime chicken, rice, cauliflower (made like "Broccoli that Tastes (Better Than) Good"
Thursday- Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with homemade enchilada sauce (sauce recipe in comments section of recipe)
Friday- Bean and Smoked Sausage Soup- (also in the plans for a week- or two?? I keep forgetting to soak the beans!!)
Saturday- Spaghetti and "The Meatball Shop's Classic Meatballs"
Muffin Sunday- Pumpkin and Zucchini Muffins with Turkey Sausage
Smoothie Monday- Blueberry, Strawberry and Banana or Pinapple and Orange with toast
Eggs Tuesday- (Whole Wheat) Stovetop and Eggs (meant to make this last week, but it didn't happen) I got the idea from a friend in college- Cook Stovetop stuffing, then scramble eggs. When eggs are almost done but not set, add stovetop and stir together.
Sandwich Wednesday- "Starbuck's Sandwiches" Egg, ham and cheese on sandwich thins
Oatmeal Thursday- Oatmeal with bananas and berries
Yogurt Friday- Greek Yogurt with berries/ Cinnamon toast
Pancake Saturday- Daddy's pancakes
