Labor Day Weekend Meal Prep and MIMM

I’m a little thrown off this weekend with the extra day off, but I’m not complaining! We did groceries and meal prep on Sunday, along with some other cleaning and errands, so hopefully Monday can be nice and relaxing. Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Meal Plan Week of 9/1-9/6

Sunday: Salmon, sweet potatoes, asparagus

Monday: Sundried tomato and onion stuffed chicken, butternut squash

Tuesday: Paleo taco salad

Wednesday: Easy chicken bake with roasted red potatoes

Thursday: Pork Chops and Roasted Veggies with baked potato

Friday: Pasta with meatballs and salad, also  try some sweet potato noodles

Saturday: Wedding in NY

Breakfasts: Smoothies, Eggs Frittata (based off this recipe but used sweet potatoes and left out some of the veggies), maple raison acorn squash pancakes

Lunches: Salads with steak, turkey burgers with salad or veggies, leftovers

Snacks: black bean brownies, paleo chocolate chip cookies, paleo muffins

 meal prep 9.1.14


  • washed, cut, and stored fruit
  • cut up butternut squash
  • made pesto for Monday’s dinner
  • minced garlic and made spice for taco salad
  • cooked turkey burgers
  • made egg frittatas
  • cooked steak
  • chopped onions for Monday’s dinner
  • made pancakes
  • baked cookies, muffins, and brownies

I’m planning to do a little more prep on Monday (cutting up more of the veggies for some of the meals) but it’s nice to have most of it done. After making a mess in the kitchen I cleaned it thoroughly which is always a good feeling. We also cleaned up most of the apartment and I went through my clothes to get rid of stuff I don’t wear anymore.


I have no idea how I was able to get rid of this much stuff and still have more clothes left.

We also ended up going out to dinner on Saturday night to McCormick and Schmicks since we had a gift card. Our meals were awesome but I was too busy eating to take any pictures. Then on our walk home we tried to take a selfie but it was so crowded and we were trying to avoid randoms in the background,  so this was the best we could do.

And an easy run tomorrow means wine tonight! Aren’t three day weekends marvelous?

    • Hahaha I know- my husband was like “oh if you threw all those clothes out you shouldn’t need any more” meanwhile I’m planning to go to the mall today. Whoops.
      I love having leftovers to eat later in the week. I just struggle with how much to make that I will have some leftovers but not too many!

  1. Sounds like a super productive Sunday! I have spent the weekend moving out of my old apartment, and today will be spent moving into my new one. Exciting, but also exhausting. Food prep won’t happen, unfortunately, so I’ll be eating the basics this week and planning how to get re-organized for next weekend. Happy day off!

    • Moving is really tough! I moved every single year from when I started college until I was 25. Hopefully I will just have one more move (into a house) and that will be it for a very long time! Although after living in our current apartment for 5 years I have a feeling moving into a house will be a real pain.
      Hope the rest of the move goes well and you get settled quickly!

    • Its such a good feeling to do a full clean up and get rid of a bunch of stuff! (Although it can be annoying and very tiring). I’m rewarding myself for cleaning out my closet by going shopping today. Ha. My husband just doesn’t get it.
      Hope you get all your stuff done quickly so you can enjoy the rest of your day!

  2. Wow it’s great that you’re so organised when it comes to food prep. I totally feel you on the whole clearing out clothes business, it’s pretty unbelievable how much you can accumulate but now you have an excuse to buy some more clothes!
    Today will be spent painting my wardrobe (never fun) but I have a gym class in the evening :)

    • Yes I love having an excuse to buy more clothes:)
      I hope the painting went well and that you enjoyed your gym class!

  3. Ah, you make me want to be better about planning meals!! This is my weakness. Imagine how easy my weeks would flow if I had my meals planned instead of facing the 5o’clock hour every day with a “what are we going to eat?!” Maybe I’ll have to just make myself do this and find one meal a week to try out.

    • You should definitely try meal planning! I actually find the planning part to be easy, its the prep that can be annoying. But its really helpful to go to the grocery store with a list of exactly what I will need each week!

  4. Was so so so so happy to have a 3-day weekend, but I ended up catching a cold from a colleague during the week I guess because I’ve spent most of the day in bed with a box of tissues :( Hoping to kick this thing fast!!

    Your giveaway pile is huge! It must feel so good to clean out your closest. I know I always feel so much better when I de-clutter and get rid of things I don’t need anymore!

    • I hope that by now you’re feeling better!
      It is such a good feeling to have a clean closet. I felt like it was so much easier to pick out what to wear to work this week because I could see exactly what I have!

    • McCormick and Schmicks was really good! They have a lot of seafood so if you like that you will be really happy! I’m not big on seafood but really enjoyed the steak:)
