Menu Monday + New Recipes

Here’s what we ate last week!


  • Oatmeal and Blueberries
  • Avocado Toast
  • Green Smoothies


  • My Big Fat Greek Quinoa Salad – this stays fresh in the fridge for several days and is so yummy! I added in a handful of fresh spinach before eating. Meal Planning Tip: I’ve been making one entree for my work day lunches and eating the same thing all four days. It helps me so much when I already have that piece planned out and prepared. Each morning I just grab a pre-made portion and I’m out the door.
  • Leftovers



New Recipe Fail: I really wanted to try the shrimp and crab frozen ravioli that I found at Aldi. Searching Pinterest for a recipe was pretty simple because all the recipes were basically the same (a cream sauce with garlic and lemon), and I tried a lightened up version that included peas and fresh asparagus.

Don’t let my review keep you from trying this recipe, because I didn’t follow it exactly. However, I didn’t like the lemon flavor mixed in with the cream sauce.  I won’t buy the ravioli again, that’s for sure – the insides were just seafood mush.

Not every new recipe is a keeper! It was just fun to try something new even though it wasn’t a win.

I hope you have a great week!

  1. That taco casserole sounds great! My husband doesn’t usually like casseroles, but he loves tacos. This might be a winning combo for us 🙂
