Meal Planning Monday

Good morning & happy Monday!
I hope you've had a glorious weekend.

Some of our weekend highlights included a fun trip to the zoo & breakfast at a place downtown that we've been eyeing for awhile. I had some of the best Eggs Benedict ever! (Eggs Benedict is my favorite breakfast, so this was a good day.)
 If you're ever on Oahu and want a breakfast you won't forget, hit up Mac 24/7! They have a pancake challenge that was on Man Vs. Food....we weren't brave enough to attempt it this weekend, but perhaps someday....
I loved the aesthetic of the restaurant, & their lunch and dinner menus looked great as well. 

Anyway, speaking of food--and now that I've made myself hungry--here's what we're having this week!


I actually made these tonight. AMAZING. AMAZING. Yes, it was necessary for me to say that twice. The flavors were off the chain. Guacamole, sour cream & jalapenos are three things I LOVE. This will definitely be a 'make again', but I think next time I'll do turkey instead of chicken, and do a little less cumin than the recipe calls for.

I made this a month or so ago and we loved it. (The recipe doesn't call for broccoli, but I always like to add some type of fresh veggie to my Asian dishes). The sauce is soo good & the beef is just the right crispy-ness. I can't wait to make it again this week!

Just the photo makes my mouth water! Haven't made it before, but the site it's on says it's their most popular recipe ever, so we'll see how it goes!

I've made this once before, another huge hit. It's super easy, and very hearty & filling. My husband is a huge meat eater, & especially loves ground beef. This meal would be perfect for a chilly day or to feed a large crowd inexpensively!

Have not made this one before. We usually really like Mexican-style casseroles, and I personally love anything with rotel in it, so hopefully we'll like this!


  1. These all look so good! I will definitely be trying some of them.

  2. Um my mouth watered as soon as I read the first one!

    1. Those are SO GOOD! YOu have to try them!!!!
