Weekly Meal Plan

Things have been crazy in our lives lately, so I’m happy to get back into a routine, which includes meal planning. Here is what is on the menu this week…

Menu Week 4-10-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

Sunday – Royal’s Game

Monday Blue Cheese Brisket & Green Beans – What can be better than bacon, beef and blue cheese together. Nothing! This beef is nice and tender and seared in bacon grease! This is super easy since it’s slow cooked in the crock pot all day.

TuesdayThai Peanut Veggie Stir Fry –  This is one of my favorites! It’s so easy and filled with flavor and veggies. You don’t even need the meat in this dish, it’s plenty filling and delicious with out it.

Wednesday – Steak & Kung Pao Green Beans – It’s been super nice here in KC lately, so we love to grill out as much as we can. I bought some steaks for Matt to grill and I’ll put together an easy side dish.

Thursday – Bacon & Bourbon – This is a local event full of bacon and bourbon. We went last year and it was so much fun! Can’t wait to go again this year.

Friday – Pork Steaks & Spinach Artichoke Mac & Cheese – This mac and cheese looks delicious. I have a ton of extra spinach lying around from packaging smoothies, I love finding ways to use up the extra.

Saturday – Wedding

Weekly Meal Plan

Wow, I can’t believe how beautiful it was here in Kansas City this weekend. This is the first week that we broke out our new grill and, man, it was overdue!. Here is the new menu for the week.

Menu Week 3-13-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

Sunday Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls – This dish is a great way to get a huge serving of vegetables that are super delicious. The teriyaki sauce is sweet and sour and great on grilled chicken and roasted vegetables.

Monday – Family Dinner

Tuesday – Quiche & Broccolini – My favorite quiche is very simple, great for breakfast or dinner. I like to fry some bacon and an onion, combine eggs, swiss and cream cheese in a pie crust and bake it up, and dinner is served. I love broccolini, which is simply baby broccoli. It’s more tender than regular broccoli and is nice for something different.

WednesdayLime Chicken & Green Beans – I’m going to use some chicken thighs for this and sear them on the stove top before putting them in the oven. This is my new favorite way to make chicken. It’s so moist and very tasty.

ThursdayTurkey Burgers with Gorgonzola & Siracha Slaw & New Potatoes with Onions & Green Beans – These aren’t your every day turkey burgers, they are piled high with deliciousness. The creamy gorgonzola is offset by the spicy siracha slaw. And the great thing is that you don’t really even need a bun for this! I love to cut up new potatoes, into thin disks, some onions and green beans and saute them up in skillet. Quick and easy side dish for any meal.

Friday – Greek Quesadillas – This is a nice meatless meal and only takes 15 minutes from start to finish. I like to use spinach, feta, parmesan, mozzarella, red peppers, and red onions. Yum!

Saturday – Out

Menu Week 2-21-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

Sunday – Family Dinner

Monday – Enchilada Salad with Crispy Sweet Potatoes – If this recipe turns out I’ll be sure to post it on the blog. I put some chicken in the crockpot with some enchilada sauce and put it over salad. I spiralized some sweet potatoes and got them crispy and put them on top.

TuesdaySweet & Sour Pork with Brown Rice – I get stuck in a chicken rut sometimes, so this pork stir fry will be a nice break. It looks really easy and the sauce looks delicious.

WednesdayThai Peanut Stir Fry – I love this dish. It’s packed with vegetables and the peanut sauce brings it all together.

ThursdayOrange Chicken with Green Beans – I can’t wait to try this dish. Oranges are on super sale right now, so this is a great way to use them. This looks so easy and healthy!

Friday – Greek Quesadillas – This is a nice meatless meal and only takes 15 minutes from start to finish. I like to use spinach, feta, parmesan, mozzarella, red peppers, and red onions. Yum!

Easy Overnight Oats

Are you a breakfast person? I’ve always been a breakfast person. I used to be in love with a big bowl of cereal. Those were the days….These Easy Overnight Oats will make you a breakfast person :)

Easy Overnight Oats | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

These oats are seriously the easiest breakfast you can make. They take about 3 minutes to put together and make a hearty breakfast or snack.

Easy Overnight Oats | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

I love to make these oats in mason jars. They make it easy to transport them for an on-the-go snack or to pull out of the fridge for a last minute breakfast. The best part about making these in mason jars is that you don’t have to measure. If you have the jars with the cup measurements on the side, you can just pour and go! No need to dirty any other utensils! Be sure to give the oats a good shake before you put them in the fridge for the night to get all of the yummy ingredients mixed up evenly.

Easy Overnight Oats | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

All you really need to make these are oats, milk and a little bit of sweetener. They are really customizable to your tastes and preferences. I made these oats here with 3/4 cup of chocolate almond milk (so good!) and 1/4 cup unsweetend almond milk, 3/4 cup of gluten free old fashioned oats, and 1 teaspoon of maple syrup. I love Bob’s Red Mill gluten free old fashioned oats. They are so mellow and don’t have a really strong stand alone flavor and soften up so nicely in the milk.

Easy Overnight Oats | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

These oats are a great substitute if you’re a cereal lover, but are wanting something a little bit more healthy. They are so filling, since oats are naturally full of fiber, and most cereals are loaded with sugar. One whole jar only has 1 small teaspoon of maple syrup, or the sweetener of your choice. I love that they don’t contain any artificial ingredients or sweeteners.

Easy Overnight Oats | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

There are so many amazing recipes out there for overnight oats. These oats might be basic and easy, but they aren’t lacking in flavor. Pile them high with your favorite add-ins: coconut, fruit, nut butter, chia seeds, hemp seeds, or whatever is in your pantry. Be sure to let me know if you give these a try!
