Weekly Meal Plan: Cooking With Gas

You know what stinks? Running out of propane in the middle of cooking dinner. That’s what happened to us in the middle of making our grilled vegetable salad last week. Fortunately, the veggies had already started cooking, so we decided to pinch hit. While Nathan pulled the veggies off the grill, I threw our two largest skillets on the stovetop and we finished them off by turning the heat to medium and covering the skillets. As one batch of veggies would finish, I threw them on a cookie sheet sitting in a 200º oven to stay warm as the rest cooked. It wasn’t our best veggie salad, but it was still tasty.

Now that we have a full tank of gas, we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Here is what we have in our plans for dinners this week:

I still have a good amount of edamame hummus and oatmeal “cupcakes” left, so I don’t have to make extra snacks this week. I also have 2 varieties of soup in the freezer, so I don’t feel pressed to cook soup this weekend.

Last week's batch of cabbage soup yielded several servings for the freezer!

It’s a good thing there isn’t much extra prep to do this week. I have a ton of work I need to be doing this afternoon. Such is life…

Have a great week of eats and be sure to check out more weekly meal plans with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers!

      We had it for dinner last night. It’s pretty tasty, but I’m going to play with it some to see if I can kick up the flavor a little bit.

    The chicken and lime cilantro quinoa sounds delicious! Since switching to paleo, quinoa has been the one food that I’ve been missing the most!
