Tuesday: Make Ahead Meals


I have to confess….I don’t cook. I’m sure I could if I really needed to but I don’t. My husband enjoys cooking and taking care of this household chore. He creates different meals each week but here are some of our go-to meals each week.

Go to meals:

Sunday; We have pasta. The sauce is homemade and gets made in bulk on the weekends. It is then put in mason jars and frozen for later use. It’s a family tradition to have pasta on Sunday nights.

Monday: We always eat a salad on Monday night. It’s lettuce, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, peppers, and grilled chicken. The salad dressing changes but it is always a vinaigrette base. We have salad on Monday’s to start the week off healthy and clean.

Tuesday: We usually do Mexican food. This is tacos, rice bowl, or salad. Everything requires the same basic ingredients with turkey ground meat. The difference would be a soft tortilla, brown rice, or more lettuce for the salad. Super easy! I also love tacos and chipotle sauce.

Wednesday-Saturday is anything goes kind of day. My husband will make something from food that was fresh at the farmers market or on sale that week.


  1. I love how you have a consistent schedule for meals. We are always asking "What's for dinner?" at 6pm. Thanks for sharing!
