Meal Planning Week 2

I’ve got a bunch of great recipes for you this week and side dish ideas to go along with them! Remember that the first two meals listed are my “two for one” meals where you make the meat for both meals on the first day to make the second dish ridiculously fast to make!

Take note of the ingredient list, the cupboard list (which are things are typically found in your cupboard–but make sure to review and add anything to your ingredient list that you don’t have in your cupboard), lastly there is the side dish ingredient list if you are using my side dish suggestions. Enjoy your week!
