April 30th - May 6th

A week of meal plans for your convenience. These aren't always my own recipes, as I love to try others out and maybe even tweak them for my own spin. But I aim to have fairly easy, family friendly meals. A downloadable + printable PDF of plans are available below as well as links to all recipes.

Waffles - We love to buy the premade Kodiak Waffles in the frozen section. They offer a few different flavors but chocolate chip and the cinnamon vanilla are two of our favs!

Banana Pancakes

3 ripe or overripe bananas

5 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup oatmeal

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Let batter sit for a few minutes as the oatmeal will thicken the batter over time. Thin with any milk of your choice if it's too thick. We like to stir in chia seeds and mini chocolate chips.

Banana Muffins - I make the muffin recipe on the back of the Kodiak pancake mixes, add in chia seeds & mini chocolate chips!

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs - place eggs on trivet and pour in 1 cup of water. Cook on manual for 5 minutes with a quick release. Then immediately place in an ice bath. This cooks the yolk through, reduce time for a less "hard boiled" egg.

Paprika Chicken + Rice


  • 5 chicken thighs

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 teaspoon paprika

  • 2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice

  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 tsp minced garlic

  • heaping spoonful chicken base

  • salt + pepper to taste

In a gallon ziploc bag or large bowl - mix salt, pepper, paprika & oregano. Add in chicken thighs and shake/stir til chicken is coated. Heat skillet over medium high heat, pour in olive oil. Once pan is hot and oil is shimmering, brown chicken on each side and remove to a plate. Stir in rice and toast for a couple minutes, add in garlic then pour in chicken stock and bring to a boil. Stir in a spoonful of chicken base then add chicken thighs back in, cover and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until chicken and rice is cooked through.

Creamy Tomato Soup

  • 28 oz can petite diced tomatoes

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1 tbsp butter or vegan butter

  • spoonful of sugar

  • pinch of baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1 1/2 cups cream or can of coconut milk

Place tomatoes, chicken broth, butter, sugar, baking soda and onion powder in a pot and simmer on low for at least an hour. OR place in your slow cooker on low all afternoon. Use an immersion blender to blend your soup smooth, or leave chunks if you'd like. Stir in cream and season with salt & pepper.

Sloppy Joe's

1 1/2 lbs hamburger

1 8 oz can tomato sauce

1 tsp worcestershire

1 tsp liquid smoke

2 squeeze ketchup

1 tbsp tomato paste

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp dry mustard

Brown hamburger and remove fat. Stir in garlic salt, salt + pepper, chili powder, onion powder, dry mustard. Then pour in tomato sauce, worcestershire, liquid smoke, ketchup, tomato paste and brown sugar. Bring to a simmer for 20 minutes or cook on low in crockpot all day.

Salmon - I bought a new seasoning called "magic salmon seasoning" that I'll sprinkle on top and cook in my airfryer at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or just until cooked through.
