This Week's Meal Plan- January 30- Week of the Sweet Potato

30 January 2012

This is the week of the Sweet Potato!! I pinned a recipe for Sweet Potato Chili and it had 20 repins within a few hours. I haven't tried it yet, but it obviously sounded good to more people than just me!! In honor of that, I'm going to buy a bunch of sweet potatoes and use them in a variety of ways this week!

Monday- Rigatoni Bake (Spaghetti Squash Bake for me)
Tuesday- Herb Crusted Chicken (boxed kit I want to use up) Baked Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli
Wednesday- 13 Bean Soup with Smoked Sausage (using bulk bag bean "kit") double and freeze
Thursday- Chicken Paprikash with whole wheat egg noodles
Friday- Green Pepper Soup (I add a chopped onion (cook with meat) use only 1- 1/2 lb meat and either use beef broth or increase the ratio of bullion to water - double and freeze
Saturday- Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos 
Sunday- Spaghetti with Asparagus and Egg (

Lunch Options: (all served with fruit and or veggies)
Grilled Cheese
Turkey and Cheese Sandwiches
Pizza on Sandwich Thins
Egg Salad Sandwiches
Sweet Potato Chili


Monday (Smoothies)- Blueberry, banana smoothies with toast and sausage

Tuesday (Eggs)- Stovetop and Eggs (I got this idea from one of my friend's in college) Make stovetop stuffing and make scrambled eggs. When eggs are partially finished, but still a little "sticky" add stovetop and mix together.) I have some whole wheat stovetop in the pantry and decided to do this to use it up!

Wednesday (Sandwiches)- Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches

Thursday (Oatmeal)- Oatmeal with fruit mix-ins

Friday (Yogurt)- Yogurt with pineapple and toast with cashew butter

Saturday (Pancakes)- Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sunday (Muffins)- Zucchini Pumpkin Muffins (* I'm combining my zucchini muffin recipe with my pumpkin muffin recipe... I'll let you know how it goes!) Turkey Bacon

  1. I would never have thought to put Stovetop and eggs together, but it actually sounds good. My youngest loves Stovetop, but it's not something we normally make so that gives me an excuse.

    1. I never would have thought of it either. When I was in college, I stayed at a friend's house and it was what her mom made for breakfast... it was then a college staple for a while, but I haven't made it in a long time! I found a box of Stovetop in the pantry and wanted to use it and the idea "came back to me!"

  2. This is one of the best meal plans I have ever seen. I want to eat at your house. Seriously, your blog is very enspiring and I am signing up to follow by email. Your ideas are great.

  3. Wow- Thank you! I haven't posted meal plans in a few weeks, but I plan to do one for next week with LOTS of green stuff for St. Patrick's Day!!
