What I'm Cooking - March 16, 2020

Meals For The Week // March Week 3

Last week I shared what I was planning to make for the week on stories and you all seemed to really enjoy it! In an effort to be a little more resourceful for y’all (especially those of you that chime in later in the week), I thought putting everything in a blog post would be the best bet! I’m not sure in which order I’m cooking these and what will be for lunch vs. dinner but this is my current grocery list.

Meals For The Week:

Chicken Tacos

1. Chicken Tacos (Tasty.com)

I’ve made this several times and it’s literally the EASIEST thing ever and the ingredients list is so short which is so nice!

Keto-Chicken-Parmesan-Recipe

2. Low Carb Chicken Parm (Cafe Delites) 

I’m excited about trying this out! I might even try to do this tonight if I can get everything together!

pan-seared-halibut-lemon-caper-sauce-3

3. Pan-Seared Halibut with Caper Sauce (A Family Feast)

I’m definitely thinking this one will be for dinner one night, probably tomorrow night (Tuesday).

Chicekn Lettuce Wrap

4. Chicken Lettuce Wraps (The Kitchn)

I’m thinking this will be a great option for lunch maybe on Wednesday.

5. Bibb Lettuce Salad

I’m going to make it up but I think this will be a great side option for one of these meals and possibly an option for lunch too.

Let’s Chat

I’m pretty new to making content like this so if you have any tips for how to make this easier for you then LET ME KNOW! I thought about compiling the ingredients together to make an easier shopping list but I figured y’all might not want to cook exactly what I’m cooking?!
