So, since I was not able to meal prep this weekend, I am now thinking about what the meals for this week are going to look like… I am linking up with Laura@mommyrunfast for a little Meal Prep Monday 🙂
Last Weeks Recap
Last weekend, I was able to prep breakfasts and lunches for the week, but dinner was generally “whatever the little guy will eat” sort of situation. He is getting more picky about his eating and that makes for a tough dinner situation.
Meals This Week
Due to being out of town this past weekend, I didn’t get to prep for the week. Also, since this is a “shorter” week, of sorts, there is not as many days that I really need to think about either.
overnight oats (made Monday night for the rest of the week – just add milk the night before!)
mostly leftovers from dinner
Christmas Brunch or Lunch
venison and onion bake – like a “hamburger pie” but with ground venison instead! (since the hub got a deer a couple weeks ago, I need to eat up some of last years deer to make room for this years deer!)
spaghetti squash with meat sauce
apple and/or celery with peanut butter
apple with yogurt and granola
hard boiled eggs with veggies
carrots and broccoli with ranch dip
energy bar or energy balls – already made, in the freezer
energy bars are different flavor variations of 1/2 cup PB, 1/2 cup honey, 2 cups oats, 1/4 cup hemp hearts + add ins (I used 1/2 cup of mini chocolate ship in the last batch) – raisins, dried cranberries, and other fruit are good options as well!
Do you meal prep over the weekend?
How is the holiday affecting your meal prepping or planning?
What is your favorite dish to make in advance? – I might need to try the recipe 🙂

More venison and onion bake!!! Mmmmm. I loved that stuff.
I need to figure out some more recipes to use it in…while it is a great sub for ground meat in any recipe, I get lost in thinking of different ways to use it.
I usually do some meal prep, but this week I didn’t do any because of traveling and the holidays. I will definitely be trying to get back on track with it after the holidays!
It will surely be interesting this week! Have a good one!
Venison and onion bake sounds amazing! I did spaghetti squash this weekend, too! With smoked pulled pork, black beans, and salsa!! Great work on the meal prep!
Venison is great – I hit the lottery with a hunting hubs 🙂 Always meat in the freezer!
wow I wish I was as organized as you. I am just lucky if I actually have food in the house. I was never good with cooking.
With a picky little eater, we have a lot of different things in smaller quantities. Generally, my prep involves trying to find other ways of making food staples, I.E. venison!
