This Week’s Eats {2.9—2.15}

Making a menu while you’re feeling little under the weather isn’t much fun, just so you know. I have a weird thing going on where half of my face is sick. I’ve got a runny and stuffy nose, and watery eyes; I think it’s allergies, but it’s weird that it’s only happening on half my face. Since because all I want to do is sleep and blow my nose, making a menu was a little harder, especially because all I could think about were comfort foods. (I made purple mashed potatoes tonight “for my daughter,” but I really made them so I could have some. By the way, purple sweet potatoes are awesomesauce.)

No recipe for you this week (see above paragraph and add in the fact that I just don’t have the brain power to write more than this), but hopefully I’ll have one for you next week.

By the way, nine of you linked up last week—so exciting! I love that this little link up is growing. Hopefully meal planning is helping your nights run a little bit smoother.

So what are we eating this week? Take a look:

Sunday: Shrimp stir fry with (cauliflower) fried rice. (I’ll take a pic and jot down how I make it and post it next week)

Monday: Spaghetti (squash) with creamy “alfredo” (new recipe!)

Tuesday: Whatever night (we’re having family pictures taken, so dinner will be up in the air)

Wednesday: crock pot pulled pork and sweet potatoes

Thursday: Roasted chicken with fresh green beans and pearl onions

Friday: Valentine’s Day (the husband said he’s taking care of dinner!)

Saturday: Clean out the fridge night (going on vacation the next day)

What are you cooking up this week?


  1. I've got a few new recipes to try this week, I'm excited! 🙂 And THANK you for this link up. I've had my menu planned since Friday. Probably won't happen early, frequently, but I'm rollin' with it.

    I hope your cold/allergy/weird half face thing clears up soon!! I really need to try cauliflower 'rice'…I keep seeing it, and telling myself to try it. But haven't yet. Hmmm. Looks like I have a 'to-do' here…

  2. Sucks being sick. On a side note – have you tried taking ACV to help with the sinus/face sickness? I always take it when I get sinus issues, because it really helps clear everything up. 🙂

    I'm excited to share a recipe each week, and this link up is really helping me stay on target with my planning – and the planning is helping me keep my grocery spending in check. Looking forward to sharing my green chile chicken nachos next week 🙂 Yay!

    Btw – a bonus, sharing my meal plan each week forces me to branch out a little in my recipes, because I don't want everyone seeing that we eat the same thing all the time 😉 Ha!

  3. Haha, I put my husband in charge of dinner this Friday, but didn't realize that it's actually V-Day until I read your post! I hope you feel better.

  4. I LOVE that you have "whatevs" and clean-out-the-fridge nights! My week's meal planning is pretty poor this time around, but I'm looking forward to Indian take away Friday being bumped to Thursday and going out for Valentine's Day.

    Can I just say that I'm most looking forward to American restaurants making it easier to flake on my meal plan? 🙂
